Kate Moss has made a career of donning the world's most expensive designer duds, but she's not above taking it all off for Playboy.

"Kate Moss will be gracing the cover of our 60th anniversary issue this January," tweeted Cooper Hefner, whose father Hugh Hefner said would likely succeed him as the public face of Playboy. "It'll be a great issue."

The British supermodel -- who turns 40 on Jan. 16 -- was photographed by Marcus Pigott and Mert Atlas for the cover and a nude pictorial of the January/February double issue, the Los Angeles Times reported.

On Tuesday in the Times, Playboy editorial director Jimmy Jellinek called Moss "the perfect partner to help launch the next 60 years," while Playboy founder Hugh Hefner said "it's natural" that she would don the cover of the landmark issue.

"She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modeling," Hefner told the paper.

Fans can expect to see Moss dressed like a Playmate, in "velveteen bunny ears, French cuffs, silk stockings and a come-hither smile" in the sexed-up images, according to the Times.

Moss has previously posed nude for several magazines and advertising campaigns, including the Spanish and Brazilian editions of Vogue, the British magazine Love, St. Tropez tanning products and the 2012 Pirelli Calendar.
