We Clothed Playboy's Most Iconic Centerfolds

Playboy's days of being the standard in highbrow nudie magazines are over. The last issue with a buck-naked centerfold came out in December; exactly 62 years after Marilyn Monroe graced the first cover in all her bare-ass, buxom blonde glory. With Playboy staff no doubt scrambling to figure out how to pull off clothed photo shoots for its spring issue, we thought we'd help out by dressing up some of the magazine's most famous centerfolds ever.

No doubt people will now actually get Playboy for the articles.

Be vewy vewy quiet! She's hunting a wabbit... preferably one with powerful batteries.
