Karina Smirnoff of "Dancing With the Stars" poses in a revealing piece of clothing on the cover of the new Playboy and inside she takes everything off - in a spread Hugh Hefner has described as "unforgettable."

“As a dancer I’ve always embraced my body. I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness,” Smirnoff told the magazine. “To me, sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are. Sexy is not just having beautiful lips, legs and arms; it’s beyond that. Sexy is soul.”

The issue hits newsstands Friday and you can view more photos here.
