Top 10 All-Time Playboy Models

The highpoint of American culture has to be the Playboy model. While historical figures around the world have conducted major breakthroughs in the world of science and agriculture, did any of them appear nude in a magazine and/or wear a little fuzzy bunny tail? I think not. Marie Curie should’ve showed us her knickers after discovering polonium. It would’ve been awesome for her career.

No. 10 – Elizabeth Taylor

Best known as one of the top leading actresses in Hollywood history, the two-time Academy Award winner was featured in a Playboy pictorial in January 1963. At the time, no one was hotter on the big screen, and Playboy capitalized on Taylor’s stardom.

How popular was Elizabeth Taylor? That same year, she earned $1 million for her role in Cleopatra, making her the top-paid movie star up to that point. She’s known for appearing in the magazine right at the height of her success–just one celebrity among dozens who were signed by Playboy at just the right time.

No. 9 – Catherine Deneuve

An actress, model and philanthropist, France-born Catherine Deneuve was first a star in Europe in the 1960s, but had become a household name in North America by the 1970s.

She was first featured in Playboy in 1963 at the age of 20, and went on to be pictured in the magazine more than a dozen times over the next several years.

No. 8 – Anna Nicole Smith

Though her life ended tragically in 2007, there’s no denying that Anna Nicole Smith was one of the top stars to grace the pages of Playboy in the 1990s. She first appeared in the magazine in 1992 using her birth name, Vickie Smith. Her success skyrocketed from there, and she was named the 1993 Playmate of the Year. At that point, she dropped the first name Vickie and became Anna Nicole.

Without question, Anna Nicole Smith was one of the most-recognized Playmates of the 1990s, despite her stature, which was considerably heavier than other models in the magazine.

She was routinely featured in Playboy in the years following her PMOY success, and also appeared in several special editions of the magazine throughout the remainder of the decade.
