We told you back in March that rumours were rife about Kate Moss taking her kit off for Playboy… and now the rumours have officially been confirmed by the adult magazine itself. If that doesn’t make it official, we don’t know what else will!
As predicted, Mossy will be covering the 60th anniversary edition of the magazine (the January/February issue) and has reportedly already been photographed by her pals Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
“This is a massive global brand,” said Jimmy Jellinek, a spokesperson for Playboy. “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… It started with Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Playboy 60 years ago, an icon for her time. Now we’ve got Kate Moss!”
“She’s a worldwide celebrity, is iconic, and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modelling,” Hugh Hefner himself added. “It’s a natural for us.”
Forget the September issues, this is quite possibly one of the most highly anticipated magazine covers ever!
