Just months away from hitting the big 4-0, Jenny McCarthy proves she's still got it.
The host of NBC's Love in the Wild appears in her seventh nude pictorial for Playboy in the July/August issue that hits newsstands Friday, and PEOPLE has a sneak peek.
"I'm really proud of it," McCarthy tells PEOPLE. "The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They're really elegant. It's probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you'd see of people with their clothes on."

When asked recently if she plans to bare it all, McCarthy, 39, answered without hesitation.
"What's everything?" she said with a laugh during an interview on Today. "I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything."

TV's Love in the Wild host took to Twitter this week to explain why she's stripping down for the July/August issue 19 years after she first posed for the magazine.
"Why should only 20 yr olds be considered sexy?" she writes. "Let's (hear) it for the MILFs."

Hugh Hefner's New Year's resolution may be to remain a bachelor, but when it comes to another holiday, the Playboy mogul is all about being in love.
"I'm a romantic, and Valentine's Day is the holiday for the romantics," Hefner, 85, tells PEOPLE. "Love and attraction between the sexes makes the world go 'round. Some people think religion is the civilizing force, but I think love is the civilizing force."
Tuesdays at the Playboy Mansion are typically reserved for game nights consisting of Dominos and cards, but Hefner is making an exception this week in honor of the holiday, at the request of his girlfriends Shera Berchard and Anna Berglund.
"We're going out to dinner," he says. We're going to eat Italian. We're going to Valentino [restaurant in Santa Monica, Calif.]"

Hugh Hefner believes Lindsay Lohan's Marilyn Monroe-themed Playboy pictorial will be a keepsake – but the media mogul admits he initially had doubts about featuring the embattled actress on its cover.
"The concept came from my editors," Hefner, 85, told PEOPLE during a recent interview at the Playboy Mansion in L.A.
"I had mixed emotions to begin with," he said. "I could not have anticipated, quite frankly, that it would turn out to be such a sensational newsworthy event, or that the pictorial would turn out so well."

How is Lindsay Lohan spending the week leading up to her highly-anticipated Playboy issue release? Flaunting that voluptuous body on the beaches of Hawaii, of course!
Just days after the January/February 2012 double issue was leaked on the Internet, the 25-year-old starlet was spotted enjoying a day at the beach while on vacation in the island paradise.
Her colorful leopard print bikini and natural pony-tailed hairstyle was a far cry from the magazine spread, for which she was outfitted with bombshell curls, bright red lipstick and nothing but heels as she channeled Marilyn Monroe.

Lindsay Lohan, who poses nude in Playboy in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired layout, says she's learned much from the screen goddess.
"Sex and sexuality are a part of nature, and I go along with nature," Lohan, 25, tells the magazine in its January/February issue. "I think Marilyn Monroe once said that. I certainly agree with her."
Lohan, who is vacationing with her sister Ali in Hawaii, puts great importance on "knowing yourself and your body because it gives you confidence."
"It’s a very male-dominated world to begin with, so knowing yourself and being comfortable with your body is an important thing for me as a woman," she says.
