Famous Women Who Have Graced the Cover of Playboy

Nov 13 2013 - 2:38pm

Kate Moss [1] will cover the January issue of Playboy, and today we got to see the first photo from the shoot [2]. Instead of going nude, Kate posed seductively in the famous bunny costume. Back when Kate was tapped to appear on the 60th anniversary issue [3], the magazine's editorial director called her an icon and elaborated on the choice of cover model: "You're talking about the face of Burberry [4], the biggest supermodel in the world on the cover of Playboy. She's the perfect partner for us to help launch the next 60 years."

So is Playboy the new Vogue? Not quite, but Kate, who has posed nude before for high-fashion editorials, wouldn't be the only high-profile star to strip for Hugh Hefner. Actresses including Sharon Stone [5], Shannen Doherty, and Drew Barrymore [6] have posed for Playboy, as have reality stars Heidi Montag [7] and Kim Kardashian [8].
