Kate Moss is celebrating her 40th birthday and Playboy’s 60th anniversary by baring it all.
Renowned as one of the top earning model, she has made millions by modeling collections of top fashion houses. However this campaign will help to add up to her millions by not wearing any designer piece to grace the magazine’s 60th anniversary issue. On a rampant for seizing the attention of all the men worldwide, recently Kate was also in news for debuting on men’s magazine cover after 17 years.
Though Kate has rocked the modeling world since the age of 14, by featuring on magazine covers, editorials, runways and ad campaigns, she decided to wear the bunny years at the age of 40. We have already seen the supermodel shed all her clothes and inhibitions for St.Tropez. Also sporting French cuffs and silk stockings, Moss will join the league of other super models like Cindy Crawford, Elle MacPherson, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Stephanie Seymour and Eva Herzigova who have modeled for Playboy.
60 years back, Marilyn Monroe graced the cover of Playboy, now its Moss’s turn to fire up the glossy pages of American men’s magazine. The shoot has already be captured by fashion photographers Marcus Pigott and Mert Atlas and will hit the stands in January which happens to be Kate’s birth month too.
Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy’s editorial director, exclusively confirmed to the Los Angeles Times about Moss’s dare-bare move of becoming Playboy’s poster girl. He assertively states, “This is a massive global brand. You need a global icon in order to celebrate that — that was the impetus. You’re talking about the face of Burberry, the biggest supermodel in the world on the cover of Playboy. She’s the perfect partner for us to help launch the next 60 years.” Playboy’s founder Hugh Hefner seconds Jimmy, “‘She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modelling. It’s a natural for us.’
