"Once a Playmate, always a Playmate"—That's the 64-year-old magazine's motto and it holds true. In a clip on Twitter, 25-year-old Cooper Hefner, son of Hugh Hefner and the magazine’s new chief creative officer, had a unique idea for a new photo shoot. He said the thought came to him while chatting with his mom, 1989’s Playmate of the Year Kimberly Conrad Hefner. He asked her if she'd be interested in recreating her famous cover photo and, when she said yes, they invited six other Playmates from the years to recreate their iconic photos. "In the process, they remind us that beauty is ageless, sex appeal is timeless and exuberance is eternal," the debut reads. What a power move. Scroll through to check out the side-by-sides.
