Hugh Hefner passed away last night at the age of 91. Many have taken to social media to pay tribute to the legend, including Cindy Crawford and Kate Moss, who were among the models to grace the cover of Playboy, the magazine he founded back in 1953. And today, the fashion industry (and many others) have come together to remember his lasting legacy, one that spreads far beyond the pages of his iconic publication. He'll forever be remembered.

Rest In Peace, dear Hef. I always considered my #playboy cover to be a defining moment in my career, and I'm so grateful to him for being present for so many of my early burlesque shows. I'll never forget the night I came off stage and he offered me my first cover and pictorial. It was genuinely life-changing. I'll always treasure my memories of seeing Hef and his bunnies in the audience at my shows, of movies at the mansion, and of our swing dance nights. It's truly the end of an era. #hughhefner #hef

Obviously my fave - 1971, the first black solo cover - Afro and all. Redefining beauty standards for decades. #sayitloud #imblackandimproud #blackbunny #hughhefner ????: taken for my @sergiorossi feature hence the ????
