Miss Atomic Bomb

The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce this afternoon revealed the 2012 version of Miss Atomic Bomb, and she comes in the form of blonde bombshell and Las Vegas resident Holly Madison, star of “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood, “The Girls Next Door” and “Holly’s World.”

Madison is an appropriate choice, as she heats things up (particularly heterosexual men) when she is around and especially when she takes off her top (again and again) in “Peepshow.”

The re-creation of the photograph with Madison is in recognition of the 55th anniversary of Miss Atomic Bomb, an image snapped by Las Vegas News Bureau photographer Don English in May 1957.

Madison attended an event to unveil her photograph shot by Darrin Bush of the LVNB at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The original Miss Atomic Bomb also is pictured here; the original and updated versions are both hot, IMHO.
