Candice Boucher won't strip for SA

2011-07-21 11:01
Johannesburg - Playboy South Africa has replaced well-known local model Candice Boucher on its August cover with Lizzy Jagger, the beautiful offspring of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall.

Readers have been begging Playboy South Africa to run a series of photos that Boucher had taken for the US edition in 2010. Some of the photos have been widely available on the web.

When Playboy opted for a very local theme for the August edition, the Boucher shoot, done in the African wild, seemed like the obvious choice.

'We respect her choice'

As a matter of courtesy, Playboy notified Boucher via her agent and supplied them with copies of a very conservative cover concept, showing only her face, and the very sophisticated photo essay.

Boucher's agent responded that she would not want these pictures published in South Africa as they would not suit her local image. Playboy decided to respect Boucher's wishes, which offered the opportunity to present its readers with a stunning alternative in Lizzy Jagger.

PHOTOS: Candice goes nearly-nude in Cannes

"It says a lot about how far we have to go towards calling ourselves a mature society when a model of Boucher's stature feels comfortable posing internationally for a very tasteful shoot of this nature, but gets put under pressure locally by sections of our society," commented Editor-in-Chief, Charl du Plessis.

"We respect her choice, as we do with all of the women we work with, and are happy that our readers will not be disappointed with a bumper August edition that carries all the traditional Playboy hallmarks. Playboy is, after all, and has been for 57 years, far more than just a pretty face."

    This article reminds me of one of those stories about pastor's daughters who are innocent bible reading good girls at home but when they are out with friends, a totaly different story. Not judging though.

      Playboy should then get hold of the pastor's daughters as I am sure they would be extremely keen to be on the cover. The pastor is extremely unlikely to recognise his daughters on the front cover when he receives his subsciption in the post.

      LBS - 2011-07-22 17:51

      And what the hell is the difference WHERE she does it?

  • Badballie - 2011-07-21 11:25

    local image.....I'm sorry young "lady" we live in a global village and your pictures which are freely available on the net have already tarnished any hope of you having a clean girl next door image here or anywhere else. when you get undressed in front of a camera any rights or hopes of being viewed as anything other than a low class, low moral person leave faster than the ANC can ransack state coffers.

      That is what a "Ballie's" comment would be. When the Ballies of the world buy the Playboy mag - now that shows their low classness and loose morals (!) Get some Scope in your Penthouse while Maxim's there ouman!

      whipsnap - 2011-07-22 08:58

      Yes, like here So what!

      kidblack - 2011-07-23 00:18

      SHE is haaaawt.

  • Adams - 2011-07-21 11:27

    The majority that will buy the Playboy have seen the pics on the interweb. Dont kid yourself, whilst you are drop dead gorgeous, you are a bare it all model locally and abroad. As for that editor in chief, not sure what it says about the maturity of our society, maybe in general we are just more conservative! He sounds like a knob.

  • ZACommentator - 2011-07-21 11:27

    There is something not quite right with Candice, the Cannes shots look a bit druggy

  • spacecowboy - 2011-07-21 11:38

  • - 2011-07-23 10:39

    I have seen some of her modeling pics.... And some of them you can in anycase see everything like the nipple. Now she wants to act all shy and stuff??? What about the SQ photo's... I googled them up. And the only thing between the camera and her boobs was see thru top, wich you can see the nipples.... Just thought that I share that....

      Andy49 - 2011-07-23 21:43

      shame you poor deprived child, you were obviously not breastfed as a child & are suffering from nipple remorse.

  • fratboy - 2011-07-25 08:42

  • Vigilant - 2011-07-26 14:21

    Doesn't want to tarnish her image in South Africa... lol. What a load of, you know what. Are these people stupid, is there something wrong with how they think? Folks are going to download the pics, upload the pics, you name it... OH! Hang on maybe her boyfriend will see it or her father... What a joke...

  • Monica - 2011-08-05 20:11
