Kimberley Conrad photographed by Stephen Wayda
Canadian beauty Kimberley Conrad admitted to us in her January Playmate story that she had a soft spot in her heart for American men. She has certainly captured the attention of one such man: Kimberley has become the new woman in Hef's life. The cover was photographed by Contributing Photographer Stephen Wayda and produced by West Coast Photo Editor Marilyn Grabowski. You'll find a pocketful of miracles when you spot the hare.
