Christina posed completely nude except for high heels and a cuff bracelet for the August "Playboy" cover.
- Carmen Electra. The 55th anniversary issue has dancer-turned-actress Carmen Electra posing for the January 2009 "Playboy" cover.

Her stomach has the iconic Playboy bunny etched out of the dirt that covers her, which adds just a little more hotness to her sexy cover.
Joanna Krupa. December 2009 never seemed so hot with Polish-American model Joanna Krupa on the cover of "Playboy" that month. The holiday issue has Joanna wearing a black and red long sleeve leotard which she is pulling down in the middle to expose her cleavage. Shot against a black background with the Playboy bunny acting as a spotlight gives this hot cover a unique twist.
- Aubrey O'Day. Former Danity Kane singer Aubrey O'Day shed it all for "Playboy" and became the March 2009 cover girl. Sitting down on a white Victorian chair, Aubrey's wearing a low cut nude flapper dress paired with gold high heels. The dress, leaving little to the imagination, is what makes this singer's "Playboy" cover top 10 worthy.
- Holly Madison. "The Girls Next Door" reality star and former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, Holly Madison's February "Playboy" cover was one of three that month. Wearing a tiny black bikini, Holly's cover was shot from her backside and her bikini bottoms are just low enough to make her picture one of the 10 hottest Playboy covers of 2009.
- Lisa Rinna. Actress Lisa Rinna, at the age of forty-five, was May's 2009 "Playboy" cover girl, wearing fish net stockings, black panties and a deep V-neck button-down shirt. Posing on a stool with her right heel perched up, Lisa's cover cannot be denied as one of the hottest of 2009.
