Playmates recreate Playboy covers decades later
The magazine invited Kimberly Conrad Hefner, Charlotte Kemp, Cathy St. George, Monique St. Pierre, Renee Tenison, Candace Collins, and Lisa Matthews to re-enact their shoots. Once a Playmate, ALWAYS a Playmate! Playboy calls on seven models in their 40s, 50s, and 60s to strip down and recreate their VERY sexy covers decades after they were first released
The magazine invited Kimberly Conrad Hefner, Charlotte Kemp, Cathy St. George, Monique St. Pierre, Renee Tenison, Candace Collins, and Lisa Matthews to re-enact their legendary magazine shoots.

The photo series was inspired by Hugh Hefner's idea that once you are a Playmate, you're always a Playmate
Hefner's son Cooper, the 25-year-old chief creative officer at Playboy Enterprises, asked his mom Kimberly to be a part of the photo series on Mother's Day, and she accepted.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner believes that once you're a Playmate, you're always a Playmate, and keeping with that idea, the magazine invited seven former cover stars to recreate their iconic shoots.
Although the women featured in the photo series are in their 40s, 50s, and even 60s, their before and after covers look nearly identical when shared side-by-side. 
 At 60, Candace Collins (December Playmate 1979) felt honored to pose in a pink bodysuit that plunges past her naval to recreate her February 1979 cover.

Both images see the model showing off her svelte figure, and 38 years later, not much has changed. 
The images are a celebration of beauty at all ages, but she admitted she was 'floored' when she opened an email asking her to participate in the project.
'You could've knocked me over with a bunny tail!' she wrote in a blog post. 
'I was thrilled and then terrified and then determined - determined to make this shoot something I would be proud of and also, in a way, let the world know that women of a certain age still have a lot of fight and spirit left in them long after their '20s disappear.'
Candace praised Hefner's 25-year-old son Cooper, Playboy Enterprises' chief creative officer, for catering to both loyal fans and the magazine's next generation of readers with the photo series.
