More than 20 Playboy Playmates and models will premiere the new Playboy line of swimwear and accessories from the highly anticipated 2001 collection. Making its debut on some of the most beautiful women in the world, this exclusive display of select pieces from the line, as well as the new ``Wet & Wild'' home video, will be available for immediate purchase at playboystore .com.
``Playboy's Wet & Wild Live! Summer Fashion Show'' is designed to be the ultimate adult pool party. In addition to the runway fashion show, viewers and online attendees will get a pool's-eye-view of the many aquatic activities and attractions including the Techno Tiki Hut for cyber chats, water slide races, the Lazy River raft ride, and floating black jack tables. Additionally, online guests will have the opportunity to chat with Playmates and celebrities at the event, and vote via email for specific attire they want to see modeled. And members of the Playboy Cyber Club (http://cyber.playboy .com) will have a back-stage pass to exclusive, sexy, behind-the-scenes video footage of the Playmates and models in the Cyber Club Spa, suiting-up in their dressing rooms, and prepping backstage at the runway show.
The event will be hosted by Heather Kozar, the 1999 Playmate of the Year and Playboy TV's ``Night Calls'' co-host Tiffany Granath. Other Playmates slated to be featured are Jodi Ann Paterson, 2000 Playmate of the Year, Shannon Stewart, Miss June 2000, Julia Schultz, Miss February 1998, and Angel Boris, Miss July 1996, among many others.
This is the second live simulcast event produced by the Playboy Entertainment Group. ``Playboy's Club Lingerie'' live multimedia event took place November 16, 1999 and broke records for online participation on Playboy.com, as well as proving to be a popular choice among Playboy TV subscribers and pay-per-view customers.
