The 55th anniversary edition of Playboy hits newsstands on December 12.

And we now know which beauty will grace the magazine’s cover: Dasha Astafieva!

On last night’s episode of The Girls Next Door, the model – who has appeared in the international issue of the publication; is a member of an all-girl band named Nikita; and was rumored to be having an affair with Hugh Hefner a few months ago – won the honor over two other aspiring Bunnies.

Don’t worry, fellas. Dasha Astafieva will take it all off in the next issue of Playboy.

Hefner said Dasha was “the most special” of all the models considered for the cover, which included Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

What do you think? Did Hef and company choose the proper Playmate?
