Limited Edition Darine Stern Playboy Cover Art Print
In 1971, Playboy made a bold move by putting an African-American woman, by herself, on the cover of the magazine. That woman was Darine Stern. Playboy was helping shift the standards of mainstream beauty and representation in the nation's culture. While it took years for other magazines to properly light and photograph darker skin, this iconic cover changed the game. The October 1971 cover was shot by photographer Richard Fegley using a jet black background and central backlight to perfectly contrast the model's cocoa-butter complexion and afro. The set was designed on the spot by carpenters at the Playboy Building and is sitting on a barely visible cafeteria table. This ground-breaking limited edition print is available while supplies last.
