Whitney Port: I’m Posing For Maxim! (PHOTOS)

The City star Whitney Port will go from girl-next-door to Maxim cover girl today, posing for a shoot in the saucy men’s magazine.

The fashion maven writes on her blog:

This is a pretty big deal for me because  I’ve never done ANYTHING like this before. I’ve done my fair share of photo shoots in my career, but none of them were at the level of sexiness that Maxim is recognized for.  I’ve always been classified as the cutesy, girl next door type, so doing this shoot  will give me the opportunity to step outside my comfort zone and show people an entirely different side of me.

Whit says she’s “definitely nervous” but believes the Maxim spread will be an “incredibly empowering and liberating experience.”
