Patti Davis Poses Nude at 58: Baring Her Body and Soul
Former Playboy centerfold Patti Davis proves that age is nothing more than a number.
At 58, most women are slowing down in their lives and dreaming about retiring to a warm, tropical location where their greatest worry will be where to eat brunch with their golden girls. This isn’t the case for author Patti Davis. With a body that would turn most women of any age green with envy, Davis is baring it all – again – in More magazine to promote health and beauty at any age.
As Davis shares in the More article, after spending her teens and twenties fighting a losing battle to drugs, the stunning beauty nearly lost her life. She conquered her addiction and then decided to engage in a battle with father time. At 58, it appears as if Davis is winning. Most will remember Davis as one of the oldest and most stunning women to grace the cover of popular men’s magazine Playboy. She faced criticism when she made the decision to pose nude for Playboy at the age of 42, but it is a decision that she refuses to regret.
Now, Davis faces those critics and again proves that age should not determine how women feel about themselves when they stare into a mirror. After overcoming her drug addiction, Davis was inspired in her quest to achieve a healthy, strong body by a nude image of a bodybuilder named Lisa Lyons.
“I found myself staring and realized this was the image of who I wanted to be. She was confident and proud; her muscles were lean, defined and beautifully sculpted …” she writes. “I thought, Someday I want to feel that I deserve to pose nude like that. Not yet, but someday.”
We are now, in turn, are inspired by Patti Davis. Women are beautiful at all ages. Patti Davis is the proof we need to cement that truth.
