Age is just a number: 7 Playboy cover girls recreate their iconic shoots 30 years later


Love it or hate it, Playboy magazine has become synonymous with America. What started in the very end of 1953 has slowly grown into a global sensation, catapulted in no short part by Hugh Hefner’s infamy. And you know, boobs.

The Playboy cover girls started becoming a real big thing, often launching the career of the model chosen, some covers even reaching a completely iconic status. Strangely enough, despite propogating the shady world of men’s entertainment (porn) Playboy always managed to retain some respect.
