In 1992, she went to a photo session, hoping to become the next face of Playboy magazine. Photographers, however, saw her large stature and frame to be difficult to shoot. Nonetheless, magazine creator Hugh Hefner was very fond of Smith and insisted she been on the cover of the March 1992 issue. She was pictured in a low-cut, black evening gown and listed as Vickie Smith. The centerfold was photographed by Stephen Wayda.
