Turning 40 is a milestone for every woman. But when youre Kate Moss, even your regular birthday celebrations are the stuff of legend. How to top that?
Pose naked for Playboy, of course.
One of fashions worst kept secrets is out today, as Hugh Hefners infamous title confirms that it will feature Moss in an issue due out early next year to tie-in with its 60
Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Playboys editorial director, Jimmy Jellinek, said: This is a massive global brand. You need a global icon in order to celebrate that that was the impetus. Youre talking about the face of Burberry, the biggest supermodel in the world on the cover of Playboy. Shes the perfect partner for us to help launch the next 60 years.
'This creates a heat for the brand globally. It started with Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Playboy 60 years ago, an icon for her time. Now we've got Kate Moss!'
The shoot is said to have taken place in March, with Marcus Pigott and Mert Alas behind the lens.
Shes a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modelling, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner added. Its a natural for us.
