Hayley Hasselhoff is Playboy Germany magazine’s newest cover girl—making her the first curve model to front a European edition of the magazine.
The model stuns on the cover photographed by Ellen von Unwerth, having her voluminous blonde curls framing her face as she leans against a mirror. She is seen wearing a red robe that matches her lipstick and manicure.
“I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment. I wanted to use this platform to express that you have the power to love your body without hesitation because of societies’ standards of beauty,” Hasselhoff wrote in an extensive Instagram caption.
She described feeling “empowered to be able to wake up and know that I get to live unapologetically me,” and hopes to inspire women to face their fears and not let their bodies define them.
Playboy previously made history by casting Fluvia Lacerda on its Brazilian edition of the magazine. Lacerda is the first plus-size model to be on the cover of any Playboy magazine.
