Posted Monday May 4, 2009 3:05 PM GMT

Las Vegas has always been known for its lavish celebrations, and over the weekend the Playboy Playmate of the Year 2009 party hit town.

Hugh Hefner and a bevy of beautiful Playboy Playmates invaded the Palms Hotel and Casino for the annual gala, and there was no shortage of eye candy.

Of course, Hef’s current girlfriends Karissa and Kristina Shannon and Crystal Harris all turned out to ham it up for the camera, along with mainstays Brande Roderick, Holly Madison, and Jayde Nichole.

And at the end of the evening, Ida Ljungqvist was named the 2009 Playboy Playmate of the Year and was congratulated by everyone in the house.
