Legendary Pin-Up Model Joanne Latham! She Was The Penthouse 10th Anniversary Iconic Cover!

Time To Celebrate The Wild Career Of Joanne Latham!

One of my favorite parts of the “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” is getting suggestions from my Facebook friends, who share pictures like this one – and made me dive into Joanne’s story!

Joanne Kandy Latham was born in Wolverhamptom, England in 1961. As you can see, the camera loved her…

She grew up a classical dancer and ended up with a scholarship to the royal Ballet School.

She began modeling and soon ended up a “Page 3 Girl” in The Sun newspaper!

In 1978, a documentary about her called “A Model’s Dream” in the series England, Their England aired on ATV.

Then, Glamour Photographer Patrick Lichfield included her photo on the inside cover of his book The Most Beautiful Women

This success led to a heated $$$ battle between Playboy and Penthouse to feature her in their magazines!

In 1979, Bob Guccione of Penthouse reportedly promised a fee of £70,000 for her to appear in the 10th Anniversary edition, and Latham was featured in nineteen pages of the magazine.

As you can see, Joanne ws fearless in her work, and these photos were hugely successful.

It became Penthouse’s best-selling magazine ever!

According to online reports, Joanne had a brief relationship with Guccione, and one even said she dated Playboy’s Hugh Hefner as well.

Latham moved back to England in the early 80’s, then had two musical credits!

Heavy Metal Band Witchfinder General put her on the cover of their first two albums in 1982 and 1983.

In 1982, Latham was involved in a serious car accident, after which she gave up modeling and opened the first ‘workout’ keep-fit studio in the UK.

In 1999, Latham became a teacher of yoga training at the Sivananda Yoga Vendanta Center in The Bahamas.

Since then, she has continued working in the healing arts. Despite several offers, she has refused to write her autobiography.

Bravo to Latham for an empowered career – she reminds me of one of England most popular Models:

Lucy Pinder has been one of England’s most popular Pin-up Models as well, and was voted the “World’s Best Breasts!” You can read all about her here:

Russian Model Alina Buryachenko also has graced many a magazine cover – but she also starred in a wild and nude prank show as well!

In the 90’s, the US had a reigning pinup Queen as well, courtesy of Sweden:

Victoria Silvstedt had a career similar to Joanne’s as well – and you can see all of the highlights here:
