The event of 2011 that you've all been waiting for is nearly here: Lindsay Lohan's appearance in Playboy. But the anticipation is getting the best of some as a (pretty much safe for work) image of the cover made its way online ahead of the mag's official release.

If curiosity is getting the best of you beyond that cover, know this: you might be able to see more of the images when Lohan appears on a Dec. 15 episode of "Ellen" where she's expected to unveil the entire spread.

While Lohan's decision to pose for the magazine might seem like a suspect career move for many, her mother Dina has insisted that the pictures will be "tastefully done."

"She's been working in front of the camera with Ford Models since she was a little girl so she kinda knows how to work that," Dina told the Insider in November.
