Billionaire Bombshell Tamara Ecclestone Lands Playboy Cover

Billionaire bombshell Tamara Ecclestone is set to grace the May 2013 cover of Playboy.

The British beauty is certainly no stranger to the media spotlight. As the daughter of Formula One business mogul Bernie Ecclestone and former Armani model Slavica Ecclestone, the 28-year-old’s famous last name often commands public attention. With her stunning layout in Playboy, Tamara’s star is sure to burn even brighter.

In what may be a sly nod to her family’s fortune, the magazine cover finds Tamara Ecclestone stretched across a crystal encrusted Playboy bunny symbol alongside the tagline “The Diamond Heiress.”

Clad only in a pair of magnificent stiletto heels and a delicate dusting of crystals across her breasts, the brunette coyly employs a substantially larger crystal to cover her bikini area.

In addition to the saucy cover, the May issue of Playboy also includes an eight-page Tamara Ecclestone pictorial and interview.

“I am so proud of this beautiful shoot,” the heiress exclaimed in a statement about the Playboy issue. “As a woman, I believe you have to embrace your body, and feel beautiful both inside and out!”

Ecclestone also expressed pride at being chosen to appear in a publication that has a long-standing and impressive history of showcasing female beauty.

Playboy is so iconic, and for nearly 60 years, the magazine has featured some of the world’s most beautiful women in its pages,” she explained. “I am extremely honored to be part of this legacy as the magazine’s May cover girl!”

It appears to be an exciting year for Tamara Ecclestone. In February she announced her engagement to fiance Jay Rutland, just one month after the couple was introduced by mutual friends. In an exclusive interview with HELLO! magazine, the billionaire beauty spoke about the couple’s fast-moving romance:

“Our engagement has been very sudden and I get that there are people who won’t understand that and will read things into it. But my response to that would be, ‘When you know, you know.’ I don’t think the amount of time you are together has anything to do with it. All I know is that I have never felt more comfortable with anyone so quickly, or felt as happy as I feel right now.”

The May issue of Playboy is set to hit shelves on April 19. If you’d like to catch a sneak peek at Tamara Ecclestone’s layout, a few of her photos can be found by visiting the official Playboywebsite.
