UNLIKE Rosanna Davison's 'Playboy' debut last September, there will be rare a raised eyebrow at this week's report that Kate Moss is set to cover 'Playboy''s 60th anniversary edition.

The supermodel-to-end-all-supermodels seems to be enjoying not a second act, but a repeat of her first, which kicked off with those iconic topless Calvin Klein print ads back in the '90s. But is the theme of her recent career and sartorial choices Operation Inspiration or Desperation?

It is well-observed in entertainment that doing nude can propel a career all the way to the top – but one would question Kate's motivation, given that she's resided on the top of the pile for more than two decades.
