While the calendar may show that summer is still one month away, the city of Las Vegas– always one step ahead of the game– declared the start of those lazy, hazy, crazy days on May 14, 2009, and who better to mark the start of the skin-baring season than Hugh Hefner’s former honey, Holly Madison.
For the past 50 years, the “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign has greeted gamblers and sightseers to the Neon City, and to commemorate its half-century of service to the community the former “Girl Next Door” posed with the city’s symbol before her hosting duties at a bathing suit fashion show which turned back to sands of time, chronicling the demure designs of the 1950’s through to today’s seductive swimwear, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Hopping into the back of a pink Cadillac with top Elvis impersonator Jesse Garon and feather-festooned showgirls J.P. Howard and Stacey Shea, Madison cruised down the street on her way to play a part in the World’s Largest Bikini Parade– a stroll down the Strip with 281 swimsuit-wearing women.
The platinum blonde beauty, who topped off her tan poolside at The Flamingo prior to her Guinness World Record-breaking promenade, plans to spend her summer on stage in “Peepshow,” a provocative production at the Planet Hollywood Resort.
