Just received an update on Beach Bunny Swimwear's guest list—count 'em, four Playboy bunnies expected: "Lily Collins (TV Personality and Socialite), Alice Greczyn (Privileged), Karissa and Kristina Shannon (Playboy models and girlfriends of Hugh Hefner), Heather Renee Smith (Playboy), Laura Beth Coakley (Playboy) and Megan Hilty (Wicked)." You already get a sense of the collection right, but from the release: "Beach Bunny Swimwear’s 2009 collection brings the boudoir to the beach. Brazenly embellished with innovative luxury fabrics and exquisite hardware and trim from around the world, the 2009 suits range from fun to flirty to seriously sultry, much like the women who wear them."
