Aisling O’Connor: It's time to make the bare essentials count, Rosanna

Ex-Miss World needs to be sure nudity results in more than just titillation, writes Aisling O'Connor

OF COURSE Hugh Hefner wants to host a former Miss World at his mansion and in his flagship magazine. And of course Rosanna Davison said 'yes'. It was a logical progression from her recent topless cover and editorial for German 'Playboy'. There has been many a 'fair play' going her way, but when you go all the way is there any turning back?

It is odd that Rosanna didn't seem eager to communicate her career trajectory when she spoke of the tipping point in her glamour career last month. For a gal who protested how comfortable she was with her decision and the 'tastefully done' shots, she seemed terribly rattled, like she was hiding either some misgivings or a cunning strategy.

Confronted with an uncensored copy of her issue of 'Playboy' on 'The Late Late Show' back in mid-September, the beauty queen appeared visibly shaken by Ryan Tubridy flicking through the pages and even displaying the magazine to the studio audience.
