Playboy Playmates Recreate Their Iconic Covers And Look As Fierce As Ever

Once a Playboy Playmate, always a Playboy Playmate.

To pay homage to the timeless beauty of its models, Playboy magazine asked Playmates of the past to recreate some of the magazines most iconic covers and the results are stunning.

Heres model Candace Collins Jordan, recreating her sassy December 1979 look:

Collins Jordan told the magazine she feels “very, very lucky to be in such a unique sorority” as a Playmate. 

Also featured in the shoot?Renee Tenison, the magazines first African-American Playmate of the Year in 1990.

In the feature for the online-only photo shoot, Tenison recalled receiving pushback on her decision to pose nude.

When I did Playboy, there was a little bit of controversy because I was the first African-American Playmate of the Year and some women were saying I was being objectified, she told the mag. But I said, Well, if youre pro-choice, shouldnt I have the right to choose what I want to do?

“If you look back, all the big models from Christy Turlington to Naomi Campbell posed nude,” Tenison said. “I see it as art. Not everybody sees it that way, but that’s how I see it.”

The photo shoot was the brainchild of Cooper Hefner, the son of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and the magazines new chief creative officer.

In a clip on Twitter, the 25-year-old admitted that the thought came to him while he was chatting with his mom, 1989s Playmate of the Year Kimberly Conrad Hefner.

I was sitting with my mom on Mothers Day and thought, Hey mom, do you want the opportunity to reshoot your old cover? he said. A pretty unconventional Mothers Day gift but she said yes.

The shoot is a refreshingly age-positive move on the part of the 64-year-old magazine, which recently decided to feature full-frontal nudity again after dabbling with abrief no nudes policy last year.

The younger Hefner announced the move to return to the mags roots on Twitter earlier this year, saying, Ill be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake.
