List Criteria: Most beautiful Playmates of the Month from Playboy, based on their appearance in their centerfold.
List of the sexiest women ever chosen as Playboy's Playmate of the Month. (This list only applies to Playmates, not simply women who have appeared in Playboy. That means no celebrities who have done nude shoots, random girls from pictorials or Playboy Cyber Girls from the website, fellas.) Each month, Playboy Magazine selects a gorgeous women as that month's Playmate and centerfold. Once a year, a Playmate is selected from the previous twelve months and awarded the coveted Playmate of the Year title. Many of these Playmates have gone on to successful careers as models, actresses and celebrities, including the late Anna Nicole Smith, Pamela Anderson, Shannon Tweed, Jenny McCarthy and, most recently, Sara Jean Underwood.
Votes on the list and rankings on re-ranks should be based on the beauty of the Playmates at the time they were featured in Playboy Magazine, not present day. Obviously, a Playmate from last year may be more attractive today than a Playmate from the '70s, but this is a comparison that makes little sense. We're looking for the most beautiful Playmate at her peak hotness.
