The Croydon-born catwalk star, 39, features in a huge 18 pages of the January/February issue of the racy magazine, as well as the cover, to celebrate her forthcoming 40th birthday in 2014.

She said: ‘I was, like, a child when I started. I was 14. If it hadn’t happened, I don’t know what would have happened to me. I would be in Croydon 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.
Editorial director Jimmy Jellinek said: ‘Playboy’s anniversary edition is a testament to 60 years of beautiful women, discerning taste, sexual emancipation, groundbreaking 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.’
Playboy founder and editor-in-chief Hugh Hefner, who has been criticised for demeaning women, said: ‘Sixty years ago, I created Playboy magazine with an intent to reflect on and influence the cultural changes taking place in America, as well as to become the voice of sophisticated men all over the world.
‘From its beginning, Playboy has stood for freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom of the press. I am so proud to celebrate this anniversary as the magazine continues its mission to promote these core values many decades later.’
The 39-year-old will receive a ‘Special Recognition Award’ at the event on Monday in celebration of her 25-year career, which began in New York at Storm, a leading model agency.
Moss has modelled clothes by almost every major fashion designer, including Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, and most recently became the face of make-up company Rimmel.
Donatella Versace, who used the British model for her Autumn/Winter collection this year, said: “From the very beginning Kate was iconic; she never had to become a model.
