Attention creepy old dudes who subscribe to Playboy: Kate Moss — who will be 40 years old in January — is taking it all off for the magazine. The Los Angeles Times reports that the model will grace the cover of Playboy’s 60th anniversary issue and be featured inside.
Jimmy Jellinek, Playboy’s editorial director, told the LA Times that Moss made sense because she is “a global icon.” She was also willing to get naked for money. That probably helped.
“You’re talking about the face of Burberry, the biggest supermodel in the world on the cover of Playboy,” added Jellinek. “She’s the perfect partner for us to help launch the next 60 years.”
Moss’ shoot was overseen by Marcus Pigott and Mert Atlas. As you can see from the photo above, the duo had Moss pose in typical Playboy duds, like bunny ears, French cuffs and black stockings.
The longer you stare at that photo the weirder it gets. Why did Playboy ever deem rabbits sexy? They’re kind of gross when you think about it. They’re basically rats with bigger ears.
Anyway, Playboy’s 60th anniversary issue hits newsstands early next month.
