The Playboy Club at Palms Las Vegas Unveils New Outfits (w/pics)

THE Playboy Bunny is not what she used to be. As retooled by the Milanese fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, the once softly voluptuous, Barbie doll-sweet symbol of the Playboy empire has become a brazen new icon for a sexually jaded age.

She still wears her trademark abbreviated tuxedo, but it has been subtly updated with S&M overtones. In a Cavalli sketch depicting her with hooded eyes, a vixenish swag of blond hair, a cigarette dangling from her lips and bondage-style cuffs on her wrists, she is more Donatella Versace than Barbie.

"The bunny costume has become old fashioned, something like vintage," Mr. Cavalli said last Saturday at his Madison Avenue boutique, "so you need to interpret it in the new direction of fashion, the young way."

His young new bunny is ready to bow, tray of cocktails in hand, with the return of the Playboy Club. For the first time since 1991, when the last of the clubs were shuttered, Playboy plans to open a new one next spring at the Palms Casino Resort and Spa in Las Vegas. The club is intended to be a showpiece in Playboy's larger effort to revitalize its image and reverse its declines of recent years.
