In its latest stunt to celebrate age and diversity, Playboy magazine has approached some of its older models.

Seven playboy models have come together to recreate the iconic covers they created for the magazine in the 70s and 80s. And the results are stunning.

Among those include Kimberley Conrad Hefner, Candace Collins, Monique St. Pierre, Cathy St. George, Charlotte Kemp (1983), Renee Tenison and Lisa Matthews.

According to Hugh Hefner, these models remind us that "beauty is ageless, sex appeal is timeless and exuberance is eternal."
