Holly Madison's Luxury Las Vegas Photo Shoot

Peepshow beauty Holly Madison was photographed at Rao’s in Caesars Palace for a luxury magazine holiday pictorial, and unlike her Playboy photo sessions, this time she kept on all of her clothes!

The layout that shows Holly as she’s never been seen before with a Vintage Vegas look and hairstyle to showcase new winter fashions and jewelry was shot by photographer Jim Decker for the December issue of Luxury Las Vegas.

Our contributing photographer Erik Kabik and I were invited onto the set to capture both Holly and Erik’s colleague in click for this special Vegas DeLuxe photo gallery.

Holly has become the talk -- and toast -- of the town since moving here. Her Peepshow contract has been extended through 2010 as the solo headliner after Aubrey O’Day’s run ends in late December. She tells me she’s completed the first-cut editing of the first episode of her new E! reality TV series Planet Holly.

“I’ve got to fix the back of my hair better in the future,” she laughed. “But I’m very happy. The pilot turned out natural, real and very funny.”

Planet Holly will focus on the adventures of The Girls Next Door starlet in her new home in Las Vegas as she joins our Merry Mayor of Mirth Oscar Goodman as an intern and then plots to run against him in the next election! We'll let you know the airdate -- and not just because Holly got me to agree to a recurring role in the series.

Holly’s cameras will film her next week back on the Strip at the Paris when she stomps the new Beaujolais grapes a la Lucille Ball to celebrate the launch of Beaujolais Nouveau 2009. The first bottles will be flown from Paris to Los Angeles and then raced here on a private jet all on the same day so Holly can taste the first glass and pour for the invited VIP guests.
