Davison swaps overexposure for full exposure

For a decade, Rosanna Davison has appeared in so many publicity photographs you could be forgiven for thinking you had seen all you needed to see.

Then the former UCD student, 28, decided to show a German audience a little bit more by appearing on the cover of that country’s edition of Playboy.

Davison’s topless front cover hit the shelves yesterday, with pictures spreading quickly across the internet.

And when she woke up in New York, the model immediately fuelled the fascination her decision to enter the world of soft porn had created.

“Ever have one of those really vivid dreams where you find yourself stark naked in public,” she said on Twitter.

Ahead of the 2003 Miss World’s decision to pose for Playboy, Davison had said the opportunity to strip off had been something that appealed to her.

And after the pictures were released yesterday, she was quoted as saying she that she was very happy with the shots and that they had been handled tastefully by the worlds most famous pornographic publisher.

“I’m a big believer in taking opportunities in life and pushing boundaries,” she said. “Ultimately, when I’m old and wrinkly, I’ll have shots like these to look back on.”

The photo shoot was organised in January while Davison was on a family holiday in Mauritius.

The picture deal followed from her signing with a European modelling agency and was reported to be for a five-figure sum.
