If you haven’t already heard, I wanted to let you know that ITALIAN SUPERMODEL BIANCA BALTI APPEARS ON THE COVER OF _PLAYBOY_ MAGAZINE’S JULY/AUGUST DOUBLE ISSUE and is featured inside in a stunning, 10-page pictorial (issue on newsstands now).

Bianca’s pictorial was shot by fashion photographer Greg Lotus in a remote area of Malibu against a very majestic backdrop of mountains and sea.

“There is no value in not showing my body,” she says in the issue. “A naked body is a beautiful thing. Even God thinks so. When I’m naked, I feel angelic.”

 Previously, supermodel Kate Moss appeared on the men’s magazine cover for its special sixtieth anniversary issue. Bianca frequently appears in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana–making her cover choice an unusual one. It makes one wonder, is Playboy going back to the nineties where supermodels like Naomi Campbell and Stephanie Seymour appeared on its covers frequently?
