The glossy is moving in a new direction as you may remember the publication made the decision earlier this year to no longer feature nudity.
Well, the 22-year-old on-air reporter stars in their October "Renegades" issue looking fierce AF in a leather jacket and jeans.
And as Playboy writer Anna del Gaizo shared in Noor's feature:
"She provokes the sort of confusion we could use right now, in part by making a surprisingly bold case for modesty."
Since its release, the Libyan American has received plenty of praise for starring in the magazine, though not everyone was thrilled about the news. Some commenters on social media dubbed her a "#hoejabi", but the West Virginia native isn't here for the hate.
She shared in her interview:
"If by backlash you mean hate and criticism, I don't read or pay attention to any of it. It's just negative energy and unhealthy… I constantly remind myself to just do the work I believe in and ignore the angry people behind computer screens."
You do you, girl!!
