Kate Moss is 39 years old. That simple fact must terrify a generation of fashionistas and cool kids — now cool men — who came of age in the era of ‘9’0s grunge, when Moss’ Heroin Chic look made her one of the biggest models in the world.
But facing down her 40th birthday doesn’t seem to scare Kate much, because when Hugh Hefner approached her to do a spread celebrating Playboy‘s 60th issue, she was down. Not only that, but she’s barely lost a step looks-wise, we’d definitely chug her filthiest bathwater.
