The first inside shot of Jenny McCarthy's photo shoot for Playboy magazine has been revealed.
The 39-year-old model is seen channeling "old Hollywood" as she poses topless in the image for the magazine's July/August issue. The mother-of-one has red lipstick with platinum blonde hair coiffed in a wavy 1950s style that mirrors the late Hollywood actress Veronica Lake.

"I'm really proud of it," McCarthy told People recently. "The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They're really elegant. It's probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you'd see of people with their clothes on."
"The one thing I like about Playboy is they don't have the anorexic look", she added. "The women are voluptuous. So I didn't really want to diet, I just wanted to tone up."
The official website for the popular men's magazine Playboy has this statement captioned with a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot:
"Jenny McCarthy returns to Playboy Magazine for her 2012 exclusive pictorial on June 25th. Stay tuned! Playboy's July/August 2012 DOUBLE ISSUE will feature the "Love in the Wild" host's first Playboy pictorial since January 2005!"
This is the seventh Playboy photoshoot including six covers for McCarthy, the host of NBC's "Love in the Wild". She began her career as a Playboy model in 1993 and has been named Playmate of the Year.
This week Jenny said that she believes nudity is very prevalent in modern day society and is not worried her 10-year-old son Evan will see the pictures of her without clothes on, according to DailyMail.
"I think he can find a lot worse available on the Internet these days. I think people make such a big deal sometimes about it, when I feel like it just comes down to how you raise your child and how you explain things to your kids." the website also quoted.
NBC debuted the second season of "Love in the Wild" on June 7.
Jenny broke up with actor Jim Carrey in 2010 after five year relationship and is now rumored to be dating sports star Brian Urlacher.
