She bares all in 10 images inside the May issue and in one frame, is seen wearing nothing more than ballet shoes and red ribbon wrapped around her arms.

'As a dancer I've always embraced my body,' Smirnoff, 33, told the publication.


'I'm thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.'

'To me, sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are. Sexy is not just having beautiful lips, legs and arms; it’s beyond that. Sexy is soul.'

The performer is this year partnered The Karate Kid's Ralph Macchio and has previously danced with Mike 'The Situation; Sorrentino and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Smirnoff began dating baseball pitcher Brad Penny  in 2009 and the couple became engaged on October.

It was claimed that producers were furious about her decision to be the first professional to pose nude for Playboy, however sources close to the star insist otherwise.

An insider told People magazine: 'They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings.'
