Yesterday, Now This News claimed they had seen a leaked internal memo confirming that Moss will pose for the Mert and Marcus-lensed shoot in London this week, although the issue won't hit (top) shelves until January 2014. She'll reportedly be styled by W Magazine 's renowned fashion editor Alex White.
If true, the milestone issue will be published as Mossy celebrates her own personal landmark - turning 40 on January 16.
She'll join a long list of celebs and models, such as Marilyn Monroe and Kim Kardashian, who have bared all to appear on the cover of the publication's flagship US edition, which was famously founded by Hugh Hefner. Fellow Brit model Daisy Lowe covered the September 2011 issue in daisy-dappled latex, although she later said she was a little "freaked out" by quite how much of her body was on show in the accompanying shoot.
No stranger to nudity, we're sure Kate won't have the same problem. Just a matter of weeks ago she appeared on the cover of V Magazine naked but for a scantily-clad Rihanna draped over her, and showed us exactly how her garden grows (if you know what we mean) in a Tim Walker-photographed shoot for LOVE magazine - although Now This News seem adamant that we "definitely won't see her hoo-ha" this time.
