What a Beautiful Woman Wants: Rachel Cook

“Take me on you favorite hike or to see something beautiful in nature.”

You’ve seen Rachel Cook on Maxim.com before—now it’s time to get better acquainted.

Hailing from the tiny Washington state town of Maple Valley near Seattle, the rising American model has amassed a 2.4 million Instagram following (and counting) by posting sizzling snaps lensed at some of the world’s most exotic locales. Remind you of anyone


Though she’s landed the cover of Playboy Mexico and posed for top fashion photographer Robert Voltaire, it’s the travel that keeps Cook in love with her work.

“The biggest highlight of my career,” she tells Maxim, “is just having so much freedom in my life and getting to see the world while I work.”
