“Once a Playmate always a Playmate.” Time and again, Hugh Hefner has echoed the sentiment that there’s no such thing as a former Playmate. Once you’re welcomed to the Playboy family, you’ll always have a family. In the spirit of celebrating the women who’ve made Playboy what it is – an exuberant celebration of beauty, sex, and the beauty of sex – we invited seven special Playmates from over the years to come back and recreate their iconic covers. In the process, they remind us that beauty is ageless, sex appeal is timeless, and exuberance is eternal.
