QUEEN OF THE DESERT
MAXIM Australia|June 2020
When she’s not filming controversial TV ads with big-name celebrities, travelling the world (when possible) or being an ambassador for car servicing company Ultra Tune, glamourous Rubber Girl LAURA LYDALL is posing for MAXIM…

Quality cover shoot, Laura — the California desert suits you — and congrats, this is your fourth cover for MAXIM Australia! How do you feel?

I’m very excited! The first one was truly a dream come true and each other one after it just gets more and more special.

What have you been doing with yourself since we last saw you?

Well, I filmed a television commercial for Ultra Tune with former Baywatch beauty Pamela Anderson. She was really lovely and it really has been so much fun working with Ultra Tune as their ambassador. I’m really looking forward to filming this year’s ad – we are actually collaborating with Pirelli tyres. I’ve also been working on designing a swimwear collection which hopefully I should be able to show you something later in the year!

Nice. In the Pammy ad you star as one of the Ultra Tune Rubber Girls.

Yes, my role is a lifeguard — we are a team of lifeguard Rubber Girls who take control of the unexpected situation and save the day. Pamela Anderson is very friendly and was quite particular and professional throughout the filming. She’s also very down to earth and had a good sense of humour. Made it all even more fun!

“YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE TO GIVE A WOMAN PLENTY OF TIME TO DO WHAT THEY LIKE DOING.”

Besides getting to work with her, what else did you like about the ad?

I enjoyed the hot summer days and filming on the beautiful Gold Coast beach.

@HOME - KATE BOCK

There’s no question 2020 has been unlike any in our shared history.

And yet we’re all lost for words trying to share with one another what this experience has taught us. So, we recently reached out to some of our mates to ask how they’ve coped with these past months of seclusion. First up, it’s American MAXIM model Kate Bock...
