Whoever thought models hit their prime in their early twenties clearly didn't take Kate Moss into account!
After taking it off for multiple ad campaigns and covers over the past 25 years, the 39-year-old supermodel will be getting nekkid for the king of nudie magazines: Playboy!!!
The news was accidentally leaked a few months ago, but Playboy's editorial director Jimmy Jellinek is making it official.
He explained the logic behind choosing Mossy for their 60th anniversary issue, saying:
"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. 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!"
Shot by Marcus Pigott and Mert Atlas, the January 2014 issue will be released just in time for Kate to turn the big 4-0 on the 16th. Meaning her birthday month will be FILLED with images of her in her birthday suit!
We’ll definitely be celebrating!
