First Look at Karina’s Playboy Cover: Just an Extreme DWTS Costume?
We’re no experts when it comes to Playboy covers, but we’ve seen plenty of Dancing With the Stars costumes. People.com has a preview of DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff’s cover and she’s wearing the kind of tiny black bodysuit that fellow pro Edyta Sliwinska might’ve worn — the fabric is just a bit more sheer this time.
According to the website, Karina bares it all in 10 pages inside. The shoot is set on a dance floor where she wears red ballet shoes that tie up to her lower thigh and red ballet ties that cover half her arms — and that’s it.
"As a dancer I've always embraced my body," Karina says. "I'm thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness."
We’re over the shock of Karina choosing to do this now — during the middle of DWTS Season 12, while newly engaged — but we’d just like to note there are many ways to celebrate sexiness and the best ways don’t involve Hugh Hefner.
