A former Miss World, Dublinborn Rosanna Davison has become the first Irish woman to pose nude on the front of Playboy Magazine.
The 28-year-old blond, who is currently in New York City, stripped off for the two-day photo shoot in Mauritius earlier this year for the October cover issue of German Playboy.
“I actually found it very liberating,” Davison said about the shoot. “It felt very natural to be naked, it was a shame to put on my clothes at the end of the day.”
International fans of the Irish model may be disappointed however, as the revealing photos are only available in the German edition of the famous magazine.
The UCD grad has insisted she was delighted with the photos, telling the Irish Sun they are both elegant and classy.
“I’m thrilled that it was tastefully done – something I would have been insistent on.”
“It was an experience I really enjoyed in the end. Everyone from my boyfriend Wes to my family have been supportive since I made the decision,” she continued.

The daughter of Irish singer Chris De Burgh, Davison spoke about how she knew posing naked would be a big risk for her career.
“I’m a big believer in taking opportunities in life and pushing boundaries. Ultimately, when I’m old and wrinkly, I’ll have shots like these to look back on”.
The Dublin beauty revealed her ambition to meet the original Playboy, Hugh Hefner.
“No I have never had the honor of meeting Mr Hugh Hefner, I have watched “Girls of the Playboy Mansion” and all those shows.
“One day it would be wonderful to meet him and go to one of the famous parties in the grotto,” she laughed.
