Former Playboy Playmates reunite for sizzling '70s-inspired photoshoot for Equality Issue: 'Once a Playmate, always a Playmate'
Five veteran Playmates across the age spectrum and from different races posed for the Once a Playmate, Always a Playmate cover photoshoot
Playboy has brought back its veteran Playmates for a sizzling photoshoot, in a never been done before, Equality Issue. Five veteran Playmates across the age spectrum and from different races posed for the Once a Playmate, Always a Playmate cover photoshoot.
Since founder Hugh Hefner launched the magazine in 1953, approximately 800 women have been featured as Playboy Playmates in the magazine. Marilyn Monroe being the first one to do so.
In a press statement, the company said that this special shoot was "to do more than prove they’ve 'still got it.'"
The '70-s inspired shoot is like a flashback and features Playboy veterans Victoria Valentino, 77, who was the Playmate in the September 1963 issue along with Candace Collins Jordan, 65, Renee Tenison, 51, Brande Roderick, 45 and Raquel Pomplun, 32.
Valentino is the oldest Playmate to ever be featured in the magazine with this edition, an honor that was earlier actress Jane Seymour's, who posed at age 67 in February of 2018. She's seen lounging in multiple robes and enjoying the party.
Jordan was the December 1979 Playmate back when she was 22 years old.
For this issue, she almost completely strips down in one of the shots wearing an orange skirt as she poses with her arm covering her bosom. Pixie-haired Jordan looks fierce in the shots and is also seen wearing a blazer dress in one of the other photos. "I want to show women that beauty and sexuality have no limits," she said in the issue.
Among the shoulder pads, feather-lined robes, and martinis, in this super chic and sexy shoot, November 1989 Playmate Renee Tenison stuns in some large sunglasses and a blazer, looking like she's straight out of a sexy '70s spy thriller.
Roderick was the first African American Playmate of the Year in 1990 and Pomplun the first Mexican American Playmate of the Year in 2013.
The two looked absolutely stunning in the shoot with infectious smiles and clunky phones as they lounged near a pool in their vintage bathing suits.
