NEW YORK (CBS/WCBS) Anna Chapman made headlines across the globe as the cover girl for the Russian spy scandal in June, and now she's turning heads after nearly going nude for her country's edition of Maxim magazine.

Chapman, the stunning 28-year-old secret agent who hid in plain sight in Manhattan, was already an Internet sensation. Now she's sure to draw plenty of clicks for the popular men's magazine. The new cover featuring Chapman wielding a handgun and making a Bond-like pose in her skivvies was unveiled Tuesday, reports CBS station WCBS.

Inside the magazine, editors call her "the world-famous red-headed spy, the mysterious debutante from our list of the country's 100 sexiest women."

In her interview with the magazine, Chapman also reveals what it is that she truly searches for in a potential mate.

"Most men are divided in three categories: primitive, those that only want sex; smarter, those that want to be loved, and [the] last group -- those that not only want to be loved, they also need that this love will be the biggest and most amazing feeling in your life," she said. "Those are the most difficult, but that is my favorite category."

The magazine's website,, has reportedly crashed several times since posting the provocative photos.

Chapman, or Anya Kuschenko, as she was known in Russia, seemed to have two goals when she wasn't sending her secret spy messages back to Russia. One was clubbing at some of Manhattan's trendiest night spots, and the other was attempting to make millions through business connections.

Chapman favored clubs like Greenhouse and Juliet, where the executive chef told WCBS she'd meet some of the most connected people in New York.

"If she wanted to hit the high society, this is definitely a place where you would stop and do that," said Mario Tolentino, of Juliet. "Anyone from Russell Simmons to Donald Trump to Busta Rhymes."
