Dance Floor Confidential
The night begins at the VIP Room on Rue de Rivoli, where we’re celebrating Playboy coming back to France. Keffer spots two models turning heads on the dance floor: Olga Kobzar and Maria Demina. “We met in Moscow,” Olga explains. “And we traveled to Paris together several times. Maria is younger than me and more of a party girl.”
Olga started modeling at 18 just for fun and turned it into a job. The 25-year-old Russian joined the elite Playmates for a shoot with photographer Ana Dias. “I loved posing for Ana and Playboy. It’s important to work with someone who shares your point of view when it comes to beauty and photography.” On this occasion, Olga is at the VIP Room to “get the night started and meet some interesting people.”
Next, Keffer and the model move on to Versailles, a super-luxurious loft run by Swiss photographer Damien Ropero. Does she work as hard at partying as she does on a photo shoot? “No, I expend a lot more energy at a photo shoot,” she insists.
“I prefer small-scale parties with friends to clubs. And I like small Parisian bars like La Maison Sage [on the Boulevard Saint Martin].” She may actually be telling the truth, as a look at her Instagram account reveals.
