Model Kate is all ears for the Playboy 60th anniversary

IT was always going to be a match made in heaven: the world's biggest supermodel teams up with the ultimate playboy.

And the first shots of Kate Moss's Playboy debut don't disappoint. The steamy shot shows Kate has plenty of Va-va-voom. Moss has gone for the classic 'Bunny Girl' look – complete with ears, French cuffs, bow tie and a fluffy, puffy tail.

The mum-of-one shows off her slim pins as she kneels on the ground and stares seductively at the camera.

It's hard to believe the catwalk queen turns 40 in January next year.

Kate was keen to celebrate the landmark birthday and Playboy's 60th anniversary by posing for the January/February cover.

The slim model has also posed for a nude pictorial which will run inside the magazine.

Playboy's editorial director, Jimmy Jellinek, believes Kate is the most iconic celebrity to grace the cover since Marilyn Monroe.

"She creates a heat," he said. "It started with Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Playboy 60 years ago, an icon for her time.

"Now we've got Kate Moss."
