Pamela Anderson may get the cover of the historic last nude issue of Playboy, but Kristy Garett snagged the last nude playmate spot, as the 749th woman to earn the centerfold spread.

The blonde beauty from Tbilisi, Georgia (the country, not the state), says she’s thrilled to be part of the iconic magazine as Miss February 2016.

Playboy has a classic American story, and I want to be a part of it,” she says in a statement to PEOPLE. “The lifestyle here, where you’re free to express yourself, is my type of life. I am proud of the woman I am and have always dreamed of being talked about because of that.”

The worldly model, 25, speaks six different languages, travels around the globe for fashion shows, and appeared in GQ Italy, Cosmopolitan Italy and on the cover of Grazia France.

Playboy announced in October that they would stop publishing nude photos of women within the magazine’s pages, explaining that the internet took away the need.

“That battle has been fought and won,” Playboy CEO Scott Flanders told The New York Times. “You’re now one click away from every sex act imaginable for free. And so it’s just passé at this juncture.”

The March 2016 issue will be a “top-to-bottom” (pun intended?) redesign for the 62-year-old magazine, they said in the statement to PEOPLE, which will still feature “sexy, seductive pictorials” of women.
