Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy issue is set to sell out quickly

By Andrea Petrou on December 20th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy issue is set to sell out.

The ‘Mean Girls’ actress posed in a raunchy shoot for the men’s magazine and despite critics claiming the pictures were “boring” and unimaginative”, it has proved popular with readers.

The issue has been selling out across many parts of the US with cities like New York and Los Angeles ordering additional copies due to the increased demand.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner wrote on twitter: “The Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records.

“The Lindsay Lohan Double Issue also includes 2 Centerfolds, the Year In Sex & the Playmate Review. Over 200 pages of entertainment. (sic)”

In the Marilyn Monroe-inspired shoot, Lindsay poses completely naked and was paid a reported $1 million.

Although the issue is proving very popular, Hugh previously admitted he had “mixed emotions” about featuring Lindsay in the pages of his legendary magazine.

Hugh said: “It really came as a surprise to me. I kind of had mixed emotions about it initially, and then it turned into something bigger than life.

“I wasn’t quite sure where she was at in her life, obviously. It depends on whether it’s Tuesday or Thursday.”

Hugh also revealed how Lindsay, 25, and her family were initially reluctant for her to appear in the spread totally nude and he had to assure them the pictures would be shot in a tasteful way.

The 85-year-old said: “I think it was essentially mama and the folks around her that kept pushing for less nudity. And I said, ‘We’re doing a nude pictorial here. We’re going to do it in a very classy way and we’re going to do it in a way in which it will not be forgotten.’

“I think it was accomplished beyond anything I could have possibly imagined. People will not forget this pictorial.”

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe

By Andrea Petrou on November 8th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan’s nude Playboy shoot was inspired by Marilyn Monroe.

The troubled actress – who was released from jail yesterday after serving just four-and-a half hours of a 30-day sentence – has posed naked for the iconic men’s magazine and its founder Hugh Hefner says it pays homage to her idol – who died in August 1962 aged 36 from a suspected drugs overdose.

He told ‘The Insider': “It’s a classic tribute inspired by the original Tom Kelly nude pictorial of Marilyn Monroe, a portion of which was the original playmate in the very first issue of Playboy.”

Hugh also confirmed Lindsay, 25, bared all for the shoot but it was done in a “classy” way.

He said: “Oh, yes, she’s naked. And classy, very classy.”

The ‘Mean Girls’ star was paid almost $1 million to strip off for the publication, but she is due to re-shoot some photos later this week.

Lindsay was initially offered $750,000 by Playboy, but turned it down until she was given a higher price.

Previous stars who have posed for the magazine include Pamela Anderson, La Toya Jackson and Drew Barrymore.

Lindsay Lohan to pose nude for Playboy magazine

By Andrea Petrou on October 25th, 2011

Lindsay Lohan is to pose naked for Playboy magazine.

The troubled actress – who was last week told she had to clean morgues for 16 hours a week as part of a court order until a probation hearing on November 2 – will reportedly earn almost $1 million for baring all in the adult magazine.

According to TMZ.com, the 25-year-old star originally turned down a $750,000 offer from Playboy boss Hugh Hefner to pose nude, demanding that the figure should be closer to $1 million.

It is believed the shoot started over the weekend, with Lindsay – who could face up to 18 months in prison if she is found guilty of violating the terms of her probation for a 2007 DUI (driving under the influence) conviction – having to fit it in around her court-ordered morgue duties.

However, this isn’t the first time the star has posed naked.

In 2008, the ‘Mean Girls’ actress stripped off to recreate the infamous ‘Last Sitting’ shots of Marilyn Monroe, taken by photographer Bert Stern just six weeks before she died of a drugs overdose, with Lindsay admitting at the time she was “comfortable” with nudity.

She said: “I didn’t have to put much thought into it. Working with Bert Stern on a Marilyn Monroe shoot was really an honour. When is that ever going to come up again?

“I wanted to portray the look and get it point-on as much as I could, to bring it back to life. I was comfortable with it, the nudity and everything.”

Daisy Lowe feels most comfortable in her underwear

By emilyborrett on August 9th, 2011

Daisy Lowe has revealed that she feels the most comfortable just in her lingerie.

The model, who has worked with the likes of Pam Hogg and Agent Provocateur in the past, and is set to appear in the iconic men’s magazine Playboy in September, says sexy undies are what she feels the most comfortable in.

Daisy told Playboy magazine: “It’s flattering that men think I could be sexy. I would like it if taking my clothes off made other women feel they can do the same. I’m more comfortable in my underwear than anywhere else. You don’t have to worry about how to dress your shape. It’s just there.”

It’s a proud thing to have a normal sized woman with womanly curves like Daisy be so proud of her shape. More power to her.

Daisy Lowe is set to appear naked in Playboy

By Andrea Petrou on July 14th, 2011

Daisy Lowe is set to appear naked in Playboy.

The 22-year-old model – who has previously posed for fashion publications Vogue and W – will strip off in an eight-page spread in the September edition of the iconic men’s magazine, which is set to be released on August 12.

Daisy – who is currently dating ‘Doctor Who’ actor Matt Smith – will travel to editor Hugh Hefner’s famous Playboy Mansion for the photo shoot.

The beautiful brunette – who is the daughter of musician-turned-designer Pearl Lowe and Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale – previously posed topless for the 2010 Pirelli Calendar and admitted she found the sexy shoot liberating.

She said: “It was quite freeing, being able to be naked for a week.”

Daisy has previously explained being “sexy” is a “big part” of her identity, and she believes it is empowering for women to be in control of their sexuality.

She said: “I suppose I’ve been very in touch with the ‘sexy’ thing since I was 15.

“I guess it’s a big part of my identity, something that I have learnt to switch into. It’s because I’m a girl’s girl. I’m not the bitchy girl who’s trying to make your boyfriend fancy me. The only reason I ever ‘do’ sexy is because I like to encourage women to feel sexy about themselves.”

Marchesa to resurrect the traditional Playboy bunny costume for new London club launch

By emilyborrett on April 21st, 2011

Marchesa's sketch for their planned revamp of the legendary "Bunny Girl" costume

An unlikely marriage of two worlds is about to happen as luxury fashion house Marchesa, home to a million frills and jewels fit for a fashion princess, reveals their sketch of a one-off design of the iconic 70’s playboy bunny costume in honour of the new opening of a Playboy Club in London.

Designers Georgia Chapman and and Keren Craig are reinventing the classic bunny-girl one piece, but not as we know it – expect ruffles, jewels and (we hope) a solid-gold tail. (As I said – we hope.)

Georgia Chapman said of the label’s design for the Playboy franchise, “We’ve taken our inspiration from the original costume but added Marchesa’s signature details, such as hand draping and embroidery, while staying true to the Playboy Bunny’s classic corset silhouette. The result is a modern, yet feminine interpretation of this legendary look.”

Playboy was a suave gentleman’s lifestyle magazine back in the day (with some pretty nude bunnies thrown in for good measure) but in recent years the whole thing has become a bit, well, seedy. Can a magical sprinkling of fashion dust change the face of Playboy again? Forget the cheap pink satin and white fluffy mules of yesteryear – Hef’s girls are about to get a luxury makeover. We’re a little bit jealous, actually.
