Kate Moss lands yet another campaign...as the face of Alexander McQueen

She may have just turned 40 but chameleon Kate isn't showing any signs of slowing down, as her latest job proves.

Surprisingly, considering her close friendship with the brand's late eponymous founder, it is the first time Moss has been the face of Alexander McQueen.

In the somewhat overdue campaign for the British label's spring/summer 2014 collection she dons a lurid yellow-orange crop and is joined by an identically dressed mini-me (wonder if we'll be able to purchase Moss in doll form?).

The ads were shot by Steven Klein, who has created a suitably gritty short film inspired by the "voyeuristic elements of the 1960s British thriller Peeping Tom" as part of the campaign. Watch, if you dare.

What could be a farily dull outfit - skinnies and a tee - gets the Kate-ified by the addition of a oversized vintage-look scarf.

Even papped outside her house, looking as if she's on her way to the gym, Kate looks good. We love the striped tee and skinnies combo, as well as the very nice Longchamp bag.
Arguably, Kate invented the festival look - prior to her appearance on the Glasto scene, people were happy to anything waterproof. Post-Kate, desinger shades, tiny shorts and bare tanned legs reigned.

Monochrome is another Moss style tactic. Papped here in Notting Hill, the trademark red sole of her knee-high Louboutins gives her outfit a flash of colour.
Kate does casual street style with vest, jeans and a show stopper of an Isabel Marant fur coast from the designer's 2010 collection.
What to wear for an afternoon trip to your local boozer? If you're Kate, your skinnies, biker boots, a check shirt and a fitted leather coat.
On paper, a white vest, grey jeans and black tuxedo jacket don't sound very exciting. Naturally, on Kate it looks sensational.
Cuffed shorts, black Repetto ballet flats, a Miu Miu swallow-print blouse and a Seventies style floppy hat make this the best shopping outfit, ever.
Kate does beach style. Here she is arriving at the 'Club55' beach in St Tropez, with daugher Lila, and wearing a bandeau dress with fringing.
