Playboy may be losing full nudes from its pages forever, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t had a good run. So many models, actresses, singers, and entertainers have posed for the magazine, and in recent years, many of them have also appeared in videos shot for their online site. So it should surely come as no surprise that there have been a large number of very hot women gracing those pages.
Latinas are a big percentage of those women, particularly since Playboy Mexico first launched, and a lot of them have the kind of bodies that win Playmate of the Year without so much as a struggle. Plenty of famous glamour models got their start with this magazine, and it also attracts those who have other careers – the stars of telenovelas, for example, tend to be a big hit when they land a front cover of the magazine.
There is a lot of history to choose from, so narrowing down this list was difficult – especially since every woman who poses for Playboy has to, by definition, be stunningly beautiful with a perfect body, and many of them are famed for their looks. After much deliberation, we now have the full list of the top 20 hottest Latinas who have taken the chance to pose for Playboy. Many of them are cover stars, some of them are celebrities in their own right, but they are all lovely Latinas with very hot bodies. Read on to discover our countdown of the hottest moments to hit the shelves!
18 Sugey Abrego
When this actress took the time to pose for Playboy Mexico in 2014, she offered her own unique take on the photoshoot. She appeared as a classic pin-up, complete with just the right clothes – though of course, these later ended up getting mysteriously lost somehow! She knows how to work the camera, and this shoot turned out to be one of the hottest ever for the magazine. That pin-up style only adds to the appeal of the images, as she gives one sultry look after another direct to the camera. Faux innocence and perfect red lips didn’t hurt matters either.
17 Erika Garcia
This Argentine beauty graced the pages of Playboy Mexico in 2012, and also managed to land the cover. Posing up against a car wearing only the barest slips of clothing, she certainly sold a few magazines that week! The composer, singer, and actress was actually 38 at the time of shooting, so it’s even more impressive that she manages to look so hot. She was first nominated for a Latin Grammy in 2000 when her music became hugely popular, so it took a while to convince her to do this cover shoot – but it was definitely worth the long wait.
16 Fabiola Campomanes
Fabiola’s cover gives you a glimpse of what lies inside the magazine, and it’s pretty hard to resist. Everything from her gorgeous look to her attitude makes you just need to pick it up and take a glance. Her cover shoot was published in October 2013, and the then-40-year-old actress looks absolutely amazing. This Mexican actress is famous for her telenovelas, and has been on the scene since 1993. This is certainly a case of a woman getting hotter as she gets older, as this is one sultry cover that you wouldn’t forget in a hurry! It’s perfect for those who don’t speak Spanish to enjoy her talents.
15 Maria Rebeca Alonso
When she appeared on the front cover of Playboy Mexico in 2006, Maria Rebeca Alonso arguably brought a touch of class to the publication. The model and actress appeared fully clothed – or at least, a lot more clothed than most covers – and in black and white, highlighting her classic beauty as well as her long and shapely legs. Of course, a layer or two came off inside the pages of the magazine, but this cover really stands out for portraying that hotness without having to bare all right away. It’s a stunning and beautiful woman that can do that amongst a crowd of naked models!
14 Aylin Mujica
Even though the front covers of Playboy are supposed to be of a more SFW nature, Mujica managed to get away with posing totally nude for the front page in 2013. The Mexican arm of the publication featured the Cuban actress in a provocative pose, clutching a champagne flute in white gloves and heels – and nothing else. Crouching against a mirror, she’s only about a millimetre away from flashing something that would get this cover placed inside a black bag and hidden from view. It’s pretty daring to attempt something like that, even when you know that there will be something more revealing once you buy and open the magazine.
13 Jessica Alba
While other Playboy covers may have been controversial, Jessica Alba’s has to be the most controversial of all time. She had no idea at the time that she was going to appear as a cover star, having never agreed to pose for the magazine like this. The shot that graces the front page is actually taken from the promotional shots that Jessica did for Into The Blue, the film she was promoting back in 2006. The Mexican-American actress took Playboy to court over the image, but Hugh Hefner agreed to pay a large sum of money to a charity of her choice and the matter was dropped.
12 Vanessa Bauche
It’s great when the Playboy team have some fun with the cover and try to represent the model a little in the way they set things up. This was demonstrated with Mexican actress Vanessa Bauche, who took the cover image of the Mexican edition in 2012. She appears nude, with everything important covered up by the carefully placed actor’s chair. Printed with her name on the back, it serves both as a reminder of who this cover star is, and a great piece of set dressing. Vanessa looks totally gorgeous in this shot, too, with an expression that makes you wish you were in the room.
11 Vida Guerra
Vida Guerra was another of the hot Latin ladies to make it into the US publication rather than the Latin one, and she really took advantage of her chance. Her stunning body was on full view even on the cover, where she appeared in just a bra and thong – and a huge smile. The Cuban glamour model knows what she’s doing, and it really pays off – she started modelling back in 2002 with an appearance in FHM, and has a lot of other publications to her name as well. When you look this hot, it’s easy to make a living just from working it!
Noelia has graced the cover of Playboy on more than one occasion, but she turned the magazine pink in this issue of the Mexican version. She was wearing a pink thong and ribbon in support of breast cancer research, bringing awareness of the issue as well as looking smoking hot. Her other appearances have also been stunning, as have her shoots for other men’s magazines. It’s a great way to shine a light on something important while still providing that entertainment! The Puerto Rican singer obviously works hard to keep her body in great shape, while looking after her health.
9 Jessica Maia
Here’s another star who happens to have more than one Playboy cover to her name! Jessica has appeared as hot bejewelled bunny about to get intimate with the devil, as well as a carnival dancer in full costumer and complete with lots of feathers. She dances in carnivals often, as well as being a singer, so it’s no surprise that she was able to show off her skills in these great photoshoots. This also means that there is plenty of material to explore if you want to see all of her Playboy images, as she just can’t seem to get enough of posing for them!
8 Raquel Pomplun
This Playmate of the Year 2013 was also the Playmate of the Month for April 2012, and it’s pretty easy to see why. She was the first Mexican-American woman to gain the title, and she is currently making a name for herself in movies and on TV. She was just 25 when she was crowned 2013’s star, and with her beautiful looks combined with a great body and excellent presenting skills, it’s very likely that we will be seeing her around a lot more in future. She’s done multiple appearances for Playboy both before and after getting the title.
7 Elizabeth Aguilar
Back in 1985, the first Mexican Playmate was revealed: Aguilar, who took on the role with great enthusiasm. The cover photo was actually considered to be scandalous at the time, and it caused a bit of controversy when it was released onto newsstands. Even now it’s easy to see how those of a more conservative nature would have raised their eyebrows at this one. Still, it’s a great cover and shows how Latinas can really make a splash in the Playboy world, even from the beginning of the Mexican publication. It’s also fascinating how little the covers have changed since then!
6 Alicia Machado
The Venezuelan actress and model Alicia Machado made it big when she won Miss Universe in 1996. This was a huge honour, and since then she has become the only Miss Universe to also pose nude for Playboy. She hit the Venezuelan issue’s cover in 2010, looking totally stunning even 14 years after her win. Wearing the trademark Playboy logo on a white shirt, she exudes power and confidence – the perfect attributes for a Playboy star. Being a beauty queen at the highest possible level certainly helps too, and she showed beyond a doubt that she’s still got it!
5 Alejandra Guzman
Even though this cover shoot was only done in 1993, it still manages to look quite dated, unfortunately for Alejandra Guzman. She did a lot of great work in this shoot, so it’s a shame that it wasn’t put together so well on the cover! Still, the images inside the magazine did deliver as expected, and this summer edition of Playboy Mexico was enough to leave anyone feeling hot and bothered. The Mexican singer and actress made herself truly unforgettable when she posed for these images, wearing a black mesh bodysuit amongst the foamy water and showing us how to cool off in style.
4 Mariah Carey
When Playboy put out a music-themed issue in March 2007, they had one clear choice for the cover photo. Mariah Carey was a fantastic front cover image, and they called it the “sexiest comeback” of the year. Although she was not going to bare all for the magazine, a revealing interview and more shots inside the mag made up for that. She showcases a stunning body on this cover, and with a cut-out swimsuit highlighting every line, looks just like a comeback pop queen should. This was a bit of a coup for the star, who was already beginning to have an eccentric reputation.
3 Tracy Saenz
Appearing on the May 2016 issue of Playboy Mexico’s cover, and with her own feature inside the pages, Tracy Saenz was prepared to bare all for the magazine. She is impressive enough on the cover, in a plunging red swimsuit which flaunts her assets very clearly! Teamed with red gloves and a silver belt, it makes a big impact. This actress and model has great curves, with a tiny waist swelling out to an ample behind and chest. It’s easy to see why she is fast becoming very popular amongst Latin audiences, and she’s certainly hitting the right notes with this shoot.
2 Paz de la Huerta
One of the most impressive things about this cover of Playboy, from March 2013, is the fact that de la Huerta is not only wearing no clothes – but also no make up! She appears totally natural in this brush with the wilderness, a really daring move from this actress who is more used to the airbrushing and fake effects of Hollywood. Perhaps she has a bit of noble blood in her veins to make her more courageous: her father is actually a Spanish duke, although she grew up in New York City. There’s a fun fact for trivia fans!
1 Arianny Celeste
Arianny Celeste is a bit of a favourite for many aficionados of the female body, and especially even more so when you are focusing on Latina ladies. She took her cover image in the November 2010 issue, making it into the main US version of the magazine rather than one of the Latin versions. On the inner fold she posed completely naked, making this a must-buy issue for anyone who was a fan of the UFC ring girl and model. Although the cover wasn’t perfect, her shots inside were much stronger, earning her a top spot on this list for certain.
