*Karlie Redd, the star of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” revealed during the August 17 finale that she’ll be posing nude for Playboy Plus, the magazine’s sister site. During test photos for the iconic magazine, Redd told the camera the photo shoot was “another achievement for me.”

Redd, 37, also posted a photo from the Playboy shoot on Instagram, writing in the caption, “This is something I have always dreamed of. You can be sexy at any age. I think all women bodies are beautiful and should be embraced. I have looked up to all the women who have done PLAYBOY before me. I advise everyone to be who they are and be confident within their skin. This is all that matters. Be proud of your body. This is about the beauty of a woman. Love my ladies! Thanks to Everyone at PlayBoy For the Opportunity!”

According to TMZ, Redd’s nude photo shoot took place this month (September) and the pictures are expected to be unveiled later this fall. Playboy shared a behind-the-scenes video of Redd from her test shoot. Check it out below.

“A few of the women that I look up to has done Playboy. And now that I am here, I have all these mixed emotions. I’m anxious, I’m excited. Part of me wants to cry,” said Karlie. “Here I am at the test shoot… I had to just give it my all. I finally test shoot for Playboy, it’s a dream come true.”

According to Page Six, Redd thinks people will be looking at her smile in her upcoming Playboy shoot, so she recently underwent cosmetic dentistry to perfect her grill. According to the report, in addition to whitening, Redd had porcelain crowns and fillings put in by Dr. Brian Kvitko of Columbus, Ohio.

“Everything she’s doing now is for the Playboy shoot,” a source close to the model told Page Six.

While this will be the reality TV star’s first foray into nude modeling, it may not be her last.

“I want to do everything Playboy again and again — it’s sexy, classy and everything to me,” Redd told Page Six earlier this month.

Redd told the “Playboy Morning Show” on Playboy radio in June she turned down an offer from Vivid Entertainment to do a sex tape because she would rather bare all for the magazine.
