Playboy’s 60th anniversary issue deserves a very special Bunny, so who could be better if not the world’s most famous and unique supermodel, Kate Moss.
Revealed by Mert Alas, one half of the fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott who shot the supermodel for Playboy, the cover shows Moss in full ‘bunny girl’ get-up.
Editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said of the special issue: “Playboy’s anniversary edition is a testament to 60 years of beautiful women, discerning taste, sexual emancipation, ground-breaking fiction and world-changing journalism.
“Having Kate Moss, a global icon and the most important supermodel of the past 25 years, appear on our cover makes this issue the perfect way to launch Playboy’s next 60 years.”
On the cover, the 39-year-old Moss wears a skintight black leotard and a fluffy, white snowball of a tail as she is tastefully shot from the backside. Her toned physique is accentuated as she stretches to her left with her arms elegantly cuffed, as the super gives a smoldering stare over her shoulder.
The gorgeous British model appears not only on the cover, but also in an unprecedented 18-page pictorial in the January/February issue of the skin baring book. Inside the magazine, the sexy bunny Moss appears topless, staring into the camera lens with her sultry cat eyes peeking out from behind a face mask and wearing the pink and black bunny ears.
During her 25-year modeling career, the married mother of one has appeared several times in Playboy. She has also posed naked for Burberry and Rimmel, and recently showed off her slender figure for Versace’s Vunk fall 2013 collection ad campaign. hiding her slim figure behind several strategically-placed bags.
To coincide with the jaw-dropping images, the new issue includes an unfiltered sit-down interview between Moss and Sir Tom Jones in collaboration with designer Marc Jacobs.
In her interview with the magazine, the catwalk star shared that the fashion industry was something she fell into at a young age and couldn’t imagine her life without it. Inside the striking spread, Kate opened up on her meteoric rise to worldwide fame, admitting she would probably be ‘working in a bar in Croydon’ if she hadn’t been spotted by a model scout at the tender age of 14.
“I was, like, a child when I started. I was 14,” she said. “If it hadn’t happened, I don’t know what would have happened to me. I would be in Croydon (the neighborhood south of London where she grew up), working in a bar, probably.”
“I wanted to be at the centre of things. I love working with creative people, and there was none of that where I came from. As soon as I was given a chance I took it.”
The model will appear at designer friend Marc Jacob’s Mount Street store in London on Monday to publicise the edition. One of her Playboys shots featured on an invitation and a blow up of the cover was proudly placed in the store window, says the Daily Mail.
