So we can all here agree here—it's a tie between Bond Girls and Playboy Bunnies when it comes to legendary groups of hot women that have been at the forefront of surrounding one man right? Founded by Hugh Hefner in 1953, for over 65 years the magazine brought us high value entertainment in the form of photoshoots, short stories, cartoons, and beautiful models along with monthly interviews establishing a change in the way society has viewed sexuality and liberation (especially for debuting in the 1950s and rising in the 60s). While its digital presence continues on, the decision was made in March 2020 to end the print magazine after nearly seventy years of groundbreaking and revolutionary Playboy covers that took the world by storm.

Through the decades, many notable female celebrities and public figures graced the cover of the magazine (which was considered a prestigious honor) including Marilyn Monroe, Carmen Electra, Naomi Campbell, Pamela Anderson, and much more. Today we'll be looking at the 17 most iconic Playboy covers throughout the magazine's run as a fun throwback.
