About this Piece
“When LeRoy Neiman and Hugh Hefner met in the early 1950’s, while LeRoy was doing women’s high fashion drawings and Hef was a copywriter in the Chicago department store Carson Pirie Scott, neither could have predicted that a 12-inch woman called Femlin was waiting in the wings. But Femlin is mischievous. She’s spunky. And she knows how to strike while the iron is hot. Fifty years later, Femlin is still going strong and sassy. Neiman has drawn her for every issue of Playboy for the past half-century, showing her at play, at sport, and at her ease. Wearing her trademark heels, stockings and gloves – and not much else – Femlin has become a beloved icon of Playboy and a celebrity in her own right.
