Publishing icon Hugh Hefner picked Las Vegas as the place he wanted to celebrate his 85th birthday (where else?) this weekend.

On Apr. 9, he and a bevy of more than 30 Playmates partied into the night. (See all the inappropriate jokes we’re not making here? We are definitely maturing. Definitely.)

On-hand for the festivities was Claire Sinclair (pictured below), model and co-star of TV’s “Holly’s World,” featuring Holly Madison of Peepshow (and Hefner) fame.

In the season-ending episode of “Holly’s World,” it was revealed Claire Sinclair is to be named 2011 Playmate of the Year, a somewhat huge deal in the world of pin-upping.

As further evidence of the circularity of the universe, fans can meet Claire Sinclair in the flesh at the Bettie Page store inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Apr. 22. Sinclair will be available to take photographs and sign autographs.
