Born Clairissa Riccio in Lakewood, California, Claire Sinclair was brought up in a household that celebrated pinup artwork. Her father sold memorabilia, and had the likes of Vargas, Elvgren, Petty, and Olivia hanging on the walls all over her house. From a young age, the pictures intrigued Claire and she dreamed of becoming one of the glamorous dames in the pinup pictures she loved.
Shortly after graduating high school, Claire was introduced to world-renowned pinup Artist, Olivia De Beradinis. Claire had just turned 18 when Olivia asked her to model for one of her sensual art pieces. Sinclair eventually became the main subject for several original pieces by Olivia that appeared in Playboy Magazine. The artist decided to introduce Claire to Hugh Hefner.
Shortly upon meeting Sinclair, Hefner asked the 18 year old to test shoot for Playboy Magazine. She soon became Miss October 2010. From there the 19 year old Sinclair became one of the youngest playmates in Playboy history to be crowned Playmate of the Year. As Playmate of the Year 2011, Sinclair got to travel the world as the proud global ambassador for Playboy Enterprises.
