Playboy Convinces Kate Moss to Put on a Playboy Bunny Costume

What light through yonder window breaks? Why, it's Kate Moss on all fours, dressed in a vintage Playboy Bunny costume for her endlessly touted spread in the magazine's January/February 2014 issue.

The issue will celebrate the magazine's 60th anniversary, and will also celebrate Moss' 40th. She will be naked, not that we haven't seen that a thousand times before. It's also been reported that the shoot was styled by Alex White, formerly of W magazine, which would make sense, given that she's worked with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for a shoot with Moss before. This image in particular will be previewed in the December 2013 issue.

Playboy is hoping that the issue will be a big hit, and a call back to their classier "vintage" days, hence the very un-Playboy lighting and traditional Bunny ensemble seen here. Coincidentally, in an interview this week on Refinery 29, artist Richard Phillips discussed his classy collaboration with the company in Marfa, Texas – the site of the famed Prada "store" piece – that will be put up in the Dallas Contemporary museum, and continue at Art Basel in Miami later this year.

"Playboy is looking for us to see things anew," Phillips said. "That's exactly what got me interested in the project in the first place. I'm of a generation where Playboy was a gateway for artists and authors to make a name."
