Playboy to feature nude models for one last time before overhaul

London: Playboy, famed for its glamorous nude models in its centerfold section will showcase another such model for one last time in February before the magazine's complete redesign.

Playboy has revealed that Kristy Garett, who has been selected to be Miss February 2016, will pose nude for the magazine's legendary centerfold.

The magazine announced in October that it would completely stop featuring pictures of naked women after more than 60 years in publication.

Garett, a 26-year-old Republic of Georgia native who can speak six languages, one of the more 'worldly' models to appear in its pages. Garret now hopes to live in Los Angeles, and said she was influenced to pose for Playboy as part of her desire to settle in the USA.

“Playboy has a classic American story,” MailOnline quoted her as saying in an interview. “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. I am proud of the woman I am and have always dreamed of being talked about because of that,” she said.

Entreprenure Hugh Hefner owns the famous Playboy magazine.

The announcement of Miss February 2016 came just days after Pamela Anderson revealed she would appear on the issue's final nude cover.
