ModeL Rosanna Davison says she loved frolicking naked in the sand and surf for her German Playboy cover shoot.
The 29-year-old felt at one with nature as she posed for the camera au natural. "There is something very empowering about being on a secluded beach, naked in the warm air. It just felt very natural. I really enjoyed the experience."
The former Miss World said she felt completely in control throughout the shoot. "I was in full control of the make-up, the styling, the location, the photographer, the final shots," she said. And she says stripping off has had her much more body confident.
"I felt very much more in touch with my body afterwards and the idea of showing it off.
"I never really liked the idea of flaunting it or showing it off before. I still can't admit to loving my body -- we all have our various hang-ups -- but I do feel much more at peace with it now."
Rosie's shoot last year was so successful, it wasn't long before Hugh Hefner had whisked her off to the Playboy mansion; an experience she'll never forget.
Most people may imagine a night at the Playboy mansion is filled with non-stop debauchery and saucy affairs in the infamous Grotto. But Rosanna spent her time hanging out with Hef in his personal cinema and watching vintage Charlie Chaplin films, such as The Kid and The Great Dictator.
"I was invited for dinner with Hugh and his wife Crystal at the mansion. It was lovely," she said.
"Hugh came down then and we had some food and chatted. Then we went into this cinema room with all the big leather chairs and bean bags and watched a Charlie Chaplin movie. It was over by about nine o'clock. It was nice and casual and relaxed." And. Rosanna says despite being 87, Hugh still has charisma.
"He was charming and I have massive respect for the guy and what he's built." And according to Rosie, Hef got the nod of approval from her dad Chris de Burgh. "My dad said, 'Oh tell him I say hi, I think the guy's a legend!' I passed that on and Hugh laughed.
While Rosanna took a look at the grotto she didn't go for a dip. "Everyone was like, 'Don't touch the water!'" she laughs. "But it looked very nice and the gardens were beautiful."
