Many Playboy bunnies have gone on to fame and fortune after gracing the cover of the famous men's magazine.
And some of Hollywood's biggest stars have boosted the mag's sales with alluring, enticing cover shots. Now, a list has been compiled to reveal the best celebrity cover models over the years.
The list tailored by FoxNews includes -
1. Raquel Welch, December 1979
Welch's career might have been waning in 1979 but her sex appeal was still at an all-time high. The cover headline read, “A Celebration of the Decade's Most Desired Women.”
2. Ann-Margret, October 1983
The same year that Ann-Margret made a TV movie playing a dying mother of ten children, she posed for her Playboy cover.
3. Sharon Stone, July 1990
After “Total Recall” with Arnold Schwarzenegger and a cover and nude photo spread in Playboy, Sharon was off and running to major Hollywood stardom. Playboy listed her in the “Top 25 All-Time Sexiest Stars of the Decade.”
4. Dolly Parton, October 1978
Dolly graced Playboy in full bunny attire: tail, ears, and double-Ds. That same year she won a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
5. Farrah Fawcett, December 1978
Fawcett, who steadfastly resisted appearing nude in films or magazines throughout the 1970s and 1980s, caused a major stir by posing nude in the December 1995 issue of Playboy, which became the best-selling issue of the 1990s, with over 4 million copies sold worldwide.
6. Joan Collins, December 1983
Joan was 49 when she posed for a 12-page pictorial and the cover of Playboy. That same year she starred in a made-for-TV movie called Making of a Male Model.
7. Burt Reynolds, October 1979
Burt has been on the cover of Playboy only once, fully clothed. But from 1973 to 1983 he was featured seven times in Playboy's famous annual “Sex Stars” pictorials.
8. Sally Field, March 1986
In 1986, she was between films, but she got a little career boost, Hef-style, with her cover pose in bunny tail, fishnets, and all.
9. Madonna, September 1985
Madonna embarked on her first concert tour in the U.S. in 1985 titled The Virgin Tour, with the Beastie Boys. In July that year, Penthouse and Playboy magazines published a number of black and white nude photos of Madonna taken in the late 1970s. Madonna took legal action to try and block them from being published, but when that failed she became unapologetic and defiant.
10. Barbra Streisand, October 1977
“A Star Is Born” earned her an Oscar, a Golden Globe, numerous Grammys, a Barbara Walters interview, and a Playboy cover.
Britney Spears has landed a top German media award, which recognises her ‘comeback from an absolute low point’ in her career, organisers of the event have said.
The 26-year-old has been named as the recipient of the Bambi award for Best International Pop Star – an annual television and media prize awarded by the Hubert Burda Media Group.
According to event organisers, the beauty is an inspiration after she bounced back following a tumultuous last 12 months, reports Contactmusic .
The 12 months has seen her lose custody of her kids to ex-husband Kevin Federline, shave off all her hair, and endure two stints in hospital.
Event host Hubert Burda says, "Britney Spears is back. Radiant and better than ever, the erstwhile teenie (sic) idol has reclaimed her throne."
Another official adds, "Her stunning comeback from an absolute low point impressed all of us."

Hollywood actress Eva Mendes says she prefers to keep her ample chest under wraps, but won’t mind exposing them on ‘special occasions’.
The Hitch actress has been dating filmmaker George Gargurevich since 2002, reports China Daily . "I don't wear short things. As for cleavage, I'll bring the girls out at certain times but I don't parade them too often. I like to keep them for special occasions!" Eva said.
Eva, 34, recently revealed her love for high heels, but never buys heels above 5 inches because she finds it so difficult to move around.
"I absolutely love shoes. I can never have too many pairs. I especially love ones with huge stiletto heels - but it's always a circus act when I walk in them. I am all over the place,” Eva said.
Aussie actor Hugh Jackman's wife Deborra-Lee caught him in the middle of getting oral sex from actress Halle Berry while on the set of the movie Swordfish.
Deborra-Lee had just walked in while he was filming the explicit sex act with Berry.
Though it was an awkward occasion, Jackman revealed that the way his wife handled the situation enabled him to do other saucy scenes in front of her.
"There's a scene in Swordfish where I've got a gun to my head, I've got to crack a code and a girl is under the table giving me a **** *** all at once," the Sun quoted Jackman as saying.
"We shot it for two days and Deb turned up unannounced right as I was finishing. Afterwards she went straight up to the girl and said, 'Hi, I'm Deborra-Lee. I think you're giving my husband a **** ***.' The actress went bright red and apologised but Deborra just said, 'Oh, don't worry. You're getting paid to do it so enjoy it!'," he added.

Standing second in the list is Israeli model and Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest squeeze, Bar Rafaeli. The third spot has been nabbed by Brad Pitt’s hot partner, Angelina Jolie.
While former Leonardo DiCaprio squeeze Gisele Bundchen came in fourth, Scarlett Johansson rounded up at the fifth place in the list of sexy women.

Actress Kim Cattrall, the star of Sex and the City, has posed semi-naked to appear in a recreation of Titian's masterpiece as part of a campaign to save the artwork from being removed from public display.
The Police Academy star went topless for a modern version of 'Diana and Actaeon' to help artist and photographer Tom hunter raise 50 million pounds to save the artwork from hitting the open market.
Kim, a regular at the London National Gallery and a huge admirer of Titian's work, argued viewing the painting as 'being in the presence of genius... it would be a tragedy if it were not on public view'.
The 52-year-old actress had been enlisted by Hunter along with a troupe of twenty somethings students to pose for the 21st century version of the painting, reports the Telegraph.
He said, "Kim is the perfect Diana. Just like the Greek goddess, she combines beauty with a sense of threat. She was a great sport and at 52 made an amazing Diana. She more than held her own among a room full of twentysomethings.
"The picture can't of course hold a candle to the original which deserves to remain on public view. This painting is sublime and to lose it to a private collection would be a tragedy," he added.

He added: “When we met, I was cast as a prisoner with tattoos and she”d say, ”Don”t take your tattoos off tonight!” and I”d be like, ”All right!” But what works best with her is the stockbroker look.”
The 40-year-old actor also revealed that very often he shows off his “sexy dance” moves to lure his ladylove into bed, reports China Daily.

Despite the row, the 33-year-old Spanish heartthrob has nothing but praise for his stunning lover.
He added to Britain's Hello! magazine, "She's great, she's amazing, she's beautiful, she's strong, she's independent, she's ... yes, amazing."

Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin has jokingly described his onscreen kiss with Jennifer Aniston on the hit American show 30 Rock as painful.
The The Marrying Man actor revealed that the experience was not as enjoyable he had expected it to be.
It was painful. I mean, every man who’’s had to make out with her in TV and movies - I don”t know how they do it! The Sun quoted Baldwin, as saying jokingly.
Baldwin was also asked whether he believed the 30 Rock episodes suggestion that crazy women are better in bed.
He added: That’’s assuming I”ve been with crazy women. If I answer that question in the affirmative, that would type a woman I”ve been with as being crazy, which I don”t really feel like doing. But I hear it’’s true. I hear from my friends it’’s true.
Alec laughed: I will say this on the record - I”ve never slept with a crazy man!

Madonna, who recently announced she's divorcing Guy Ritchie, has reportedly advised Britney Spears never to marry again.
According to reports, the 'Material Girl' has told Britney, who divorced Kevin Federline in 2006, not to walk down the aisle again, reports China Daily.
Earlier this month, Britney joined the 50-year-old diva on stage at a performance as part of her 'Sticky and Sweet' world tour.
"Britney asked Madonna if she will ever marry again after her split from Guy. Madonna not only said she wouldn't but told Britney to forget about marriage. She said it just doesn't work for girls like them," a source close to Madonna told gossip website AbsoluteNow.com.
The source added, "Madonna clearly sees a lot of herself in Britney because she seems very eager to help her."
Madonna and Britney have been friends since they appeared together at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2003, where they infamously shared a kiss on stage. Britney also collaborated with Madonna on her 2003 hit 'Me Against the Music'.

Hollywood actress Kate Hudson, who was spotted flirting with Madonna's rumoured beau Alex Rodriguez, has revealed that she would 'do anything' for a challenging role, even if it required stripping off on the big screen.
The 29-year-old star admits that she is comfortable with stripping as long as it works for the movie, reports the China Daily.
"It depends on the movie and depends on the circumstance, but nudity is always something that is an issue for women," she said.
“I am pretty comfortable with that but as long as it works for the movie. Nudity is normally the biggest issue that I think about in a movie. But if I wanted a part I would pretty much do anything I needed to in order to get that role," she added.
The Almost Famous actress had earlier revealed that she loved walking around the house in the nude. "My mother and father never made a big deal about nudity in our house. I often walk around naked or just wearing panties. Actors are all supposed to be emotionally naked anyway," she said.

While Hugh Hefner's ex-girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson is all set to walk down the aisle, she fears that her life as a Playboy bunny and her naked pictures in the men's magazine wouldn't stop following her even after her marriage.
The 23-year-old's engagement with Philadelphia Eagles hunk Hank Baskett was recently announced by Kendra's former beau Hefner himself.
Known for her rather outspoken attitude, the 'Girls Next Door' girl still 'freaks out' over the thought of the world being able to flip open the men's magazine and see her naked.
"If you do the math, you only see a good 3-5 minutes of me in an episode, and I'm generally clothed, but you can have a magazine lying around forever and open it up and see me totally naked," Fox News quoted Wilkinson as saying.
She also said that she gets scared just thinking about people scrutinizing her 'personal places'. In fact, Kendra, who has reportedly inked a deal to appear in a series of Marc Ecko lingerie ads, revealed she wanted to be on the other side of the camera in the future.
"I have no regrets coming to the Mansion and doing the show, I've had so much fun through the years and seasons and I'm very proud of what I've achieved," she said.
She added, "Being here has opened my eyes to so many opportunities, now I can really dream. But I'm scared of the entertainment business, I'm scared of being around all these people. I just hope I can get a behind-the-scenes job."
Lindsay Lohan has reportedly confessed that her relationship with gal pal Samantha Ronson has reached make-or-break point.
The couple - who spent all of last week partying hard around Europe - were spotted on more than one occasion caught up in a lover's tiff.
And according to UK reports, the Mean Girls star is on the verge of throwing in the towel on their nine-month relationship.
Lindsay reportedly told a News of The World journo, "Things are very difficult at the moment. I’m just trying to work out what to do."
The pair were spotted at London's Chinawhite nite spot on Wednesday attempting to make one another jealous by lapping up the attention from several other girls in the club.

Jennifer Aniston has branded love rival Angelina Jolie “uncool” following the actress’s admission she fell in love with current partner Brad Pitt when he was still married to the former Friends star.
Jolie recently revealed she and Pitt “fell in love” on the set of 2004 movie Mr and Mrs Smith, a whole year before Pitt and Aniston divorced.
The quote contradicted their previous claims they only hooked up after the split was made formal.
And it has prompted Aniston to break her long silence on the subject, in an interview with the December 2008 issue of Vogue magazine. What Angelina did was very uncool.
The 39-year-old says, “What Angelina did was very uncool.” Just last year, Jolie offered to meet Aniston in her own interview with the magazine. She said at the time, “If she wanted to (meet) then I would be open to it.”

Hollywood actress Salma Hayek has revealed that she can’t get enough of breastfeeding.
The 42-year-old star, who welcomed daughter Valentina in September 2007, says that she can’t stop herself from breastfeeding her daughter, reports China Daily.
"I'm like an alcoholic. It is like, I don't care if I cry, I don't care if I am fat, I am just going to do it for one more week, one more month, and then when I see how much good it is doing her and I can't stop,” she told Britain's Style magazine.
“It is a very powerful thing, you know," she added.
The Frida star admitted that breastfeeding is very painful.
"Let me tell you it is tough. You don't know what pain I am in after two hours, how difficult it was at first,” she added.
Moreover, she also dismissed claims that it helps mothers shed their post-pregnancy weight.
"And by the way, the myth that says you lose all this weight when you breastfeed? That is so not true! It''s like, please, will everyone stop telling me I look really well," she added.
Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has told a U.S. magazine she is "bisexual".
The Mean Girls star has been romantically linked to British DJ Samantha Ronson since they were spotted kissing and cuddling at a party in Cannes, France earlier this year (2008).
The 22-year-old had been continually refusing to comment on her relationship. She has also been dodged questions about her sexuality.
But in an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, Lohan is asked whether she is BISEXUAL and answers, "Maybe. Yeah."

Jennifer Aniston’s ex-fiance Tate Donovan has been phoning the actress to tell her she was the “love of his life”.
The 39-year-old actress – who recently rekindled her relationship with Gravity singer John Mayer – is said to be considering giving her relationship with Tate a second chance.
A source close to Jennifer, who split from 45-year-old Tate in 1995 after three years of dating, said: “Jennifer cannot believe it. A few months ago she was single and heartbroken, and now she has got two men professing their love for her.
“Tate has been in touch with Jennifer on and off over the years. But this time it was different. He called her again and again and hinted they should start dating.
“Jennifer thought it was a joke at first, but she is immensely flattered and is considering her options.”
Jennifer - who appeared with Tate in several episodes of Friends when he played her love interest Joshua - is said to be finding it difficult to choose between the two stars and is considering which man would make a better father.
The source added to Look magazine: “Jennifer really wants a baby and whatever relationship she has now may be her last chance to settle down and have a family.
“I think Jennifer sees the family man in Tate, and that’s attractive to her. At the same time, she wants things to work between her and John.”

The hotel heiress broke her silence to condemn the pesky string of her exes. "Every other guy I've been out with has used me for money or sex - but in most cases they just want fame. It made it hard to trust people,” News of the World quoted her, as saying.
Topping her treachery hit list is ex-beau Rick Salomon, the small-time film producer, who made millions selling the infamous home-made sex tape of Paris, which was originally leaked on the internet. “I loved this guy for three years but he betrayed me. Rick’s a scumbag and I hate him,” she said.
“It was just the most horrible thing that’s ever happened to me. So humiliating and embarrassing. But at the end of the day, I didn’t do anything wrong,” she added.
She also boosted the flagging careers of ex-Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and Greek shipping heirs Paris Latsis and Stavros Niarchos III, who ditched her after using their newfound celebrity to snare other women. “After a while I had to start questioning exactly why somebody wanted to be with me. And that made things really difficult. I’m so relieved I don’t have to think about that now because I’ve found someone who loves me for me. Benji’s my best friend and I know he’d never hurt me,” she said.
And after months of denials, Paris has finally admitted that she is looking forward to start a family. “I’d love to start a family in the next year. And I want to get married before we have kids—I want three or four,” she said.
“My love life’s in the happiest place it’s ever been. Benji’s with me because he loves me and that’s it. I know I can trust him, and he knows he can trust me,” she added.
