Kate Moss to Pose for the 60th Anniversary Issue of Playboy
Iconic British supermodel, Kate Moss, is to pose for the cover of Playboy’s 60th Anniversary Issue, which also ties in with her 40th birthday, just a month after the copy will hit the shops.
Kate Moss has appeared on many a famous magazine cover and is no stranger to baring all for the camera, but has never before posed for Playboy. It’s only fitting that someone with the status of our Kate should feature on a special edition issue.
Hugh Hefner said: ‘She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modelling. It’s a natural for us.’
Playboy’s editorial director added to this statement, 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.’ He added: ‘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!’
On the front cover Kate is garbed in the traditional Playboy bunny get up (bunny ears, wrist cuffs, black stockings…) but will probably work it in her signature supermodel style: effortlessly sexy with a hint of grunge, and of course those razor sharp cheekbones.
Other high profile covers have included:
The blonde bombshell appeared on the very first edition of Playboy in 1953, looking as timelessly beautiful as ever and going down in history.
The Basic Instinct actress posed seductively on the cover with ice cubes and a cheeky bit of cleavage.
Marge Simpson went down in history as the first cartoon character to appear on the front cover of the men’s magazine.
At the start of her burgeoning career, Kim Kardashian posed for the magazine, claiming it was so women could see what a real body looked like. Her bank account probably thanked her too, as did the fame that closely followed…
