Final Playboy Centerfold Model Revealed

8 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

EXCLUSIVE: Kristy Garett, Playboy magazine’s 749th Playmate, is the last to bare all in pages of men’s magazine.

Scott Flanders, Playboy’s chief executive, told The New York Times that Playboy’s circulation had fallen to 800,000, down from a peak of 5.6 million 40 years ago, as a result of the ubiquity of online pornography and nudity – a staple of the magazine since its launch in 1953. “Playboy has a classic American story, and I want to be a part of it,” she said. “The lifestyle here, where you’re free to express yourself, is my type of life.

The 26-year-old will be the long-running magazine’s 749th Playmate and joins a long list of famous women that stretches back all the way to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe .Kristy Garett, 26, has been selected to be Miss February 2016 – the last playmate to appear in the pages in the buff before complete redesign come March.

On the final cover, Playboy magazine said: “To close out this era in the magazine’s history, it only made sense to put the most famous Playmate in Playboy history on the cover: Pamela Anderson.” “Oh dear, so much. Hugh Hefner’s famed men’s magazine announced in October that it would completely stop featuring pictures of naked women after more than 60 years in publication. It’s so iconic — being the last nude Playmate makes me cry and feel happy inside.” Playboy, after a top-to-bottom redesign, will return with a March edition featuring “sexy, seductive pictorials of the world’s most beautiful women.” Those will include the monthly Playmates. Kristy will appear in a 12-page spread in the special January/February 2016 issue on sale next week, and she revealed how she could not believe her luck. The first model to appear on the cover was Marilyn Monroe in December 1953, and the first centerfold was published in 1956 with actress Marian Stafford.

Her centerfold shot marks the end of an era that started shortly after Hugh Hefner rolled out his magazine in 1953 — featuring nude photos of Marilyn Monroe. He revealed when he first heard about the magazine’s plans to drop completely nude photos, he thought it was a crazy idea – but now believes it’s ‘common sense’. Among the most prominent of Playmates across the ensuing decades were “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson, actress Shannon Tweed, model/actress Anna Nicole Smith and pinup idol Bettie Page. While Garett, 26, grew up in southern Russia, closer to the Kremlin than the Playboy Mansion, she was still attracted by the magazine’s storied past and evolving present.

But when the actress asked her 19-year-old son Brandon for permission to do the nude shoot he told her she had to do it and even gave her a high-five in celebration of the news. Playboy editorial director Jason Buhrmester says she’s the perfect choice for the final unclad centerfold. “I think she really represents where the Playmate evolved to over the past 60 years,” said Buhrmester. “She’s international, she’s a model — but she still looks approachable.” “My first reaction was, ‘That’s crazy,’” he said. “But it’s common sense.
