Kate Moss took on "the complete role of fashion editor" when she contributed to Britain's Vogue magazine.
The legendary supermodel took the helm of the iconic fashion magazine for a special issue, which see's Kate as the contributing fashion editor. The magazine will hit newsstands this week.
Editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, was more than impressed with Kate's editing and stylist skills.
"Possibly unsurprisingly an homage to renegade rock style," wrote Alexandra in her editor's letter, referring to Kate's fashion story.
"From gathering the initial mood board to talking me through the rail of clothes in the Vogue fashion room and adjusting the accessories on Daria Werbowy, Kate took on the complete role of fashion editor."
Kate styled Ukrainian-Canadian model on a shoot titled Cause Célèbre.
The photos took their inspiration from 1970s band Destroy All Monsters. One shot, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, featured Daria sitting in the driver's seat of a convertible car wearing fishnet tights, a studded mini dress and black leather fingerless gloves. Her hair is streaked with red, giving the whole image a punky feel.
Alexandra also noted how Kate's partying ways haven't been toned down since the model hit her milestone 40th birthday on January 16.
"Perhaps not every editor takes her model out partying the first night of the shoot," she wrote.
Kate took over the March issue, which will be available from Thursday.
Photographers Mert and Marcus have worked with Kate on numerous occasions and shot her recent Playboy cover, to celebrate the magazine's 60th birthday.
"Oh, my God, it was a no-brainer. When Kate asked us to shoot her for Playboy's 60th anniversary issue, you know, we had to do it," Mert told Style.com.
"We didn't have any hesitations. We were all in from the start. We've done a lot of things with Kate-a lot of role-playing, a lot of fashion pictures, a lot of personal pictures-and when we started this project, we asked ourselves what not to do," Marcus added.
