In addition to the 10 sexy images inside, the 'Dancing with the Stars' pro dancer steams up the cover of the adult magazine's May issue by showing off her toned body in a black, sheer bodysuit.
The May issue's cover of Playboy magazine featuring Karina Smirnoff has been unveiled. Released for viewing pleasure just days away before the issue hits newsstands this Friday, April 15, the shot features the "Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer posing provocatively in a black-stringed, sheer bodysuit.
Aside from the sexy cover, the former fiancee of fellow "DWTS" dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy also steamed up the pages inside the adult magazine as she flaunted her toned body in ten steamy images. One of her naked pictures features her wearing nothing more than ballet shoes with red ribbon being wrapped around her arms.
To the magazine, Karina also shared, "As a dancer I've always embraced my body. I'm thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness." She added, "To me, sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are. Sexy is not just having beautiful lips, legs and arms; it's beyond that. Sexy is soul."
Back on April 6, Playboy's founder and Chief Creative Officer Hugh Hefner announced that the dancer, who is partnered with Ralph Macchio for this season of "DWTS", is baring all for the magazine. He tweeted, "The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars' Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside."
