Moss covers Vogue for 35th time

Kate Moss has shot her 35th cover for Vogue.

The Croydon-born model is the cover star for the May edition of UK Vogue, where she is seen with her hair in its usual messy style and wearing a silver fringed jacket that she designed herself for her Topshop collection, according to the Daily Mirror.

Kate, 40, first covered the fashion bible as a fresh-faced teenager back in 1993, and has since gone on to become one of the most recognisable models in the industry.

Her face has graced the covers of Vogue editions in Japan, China, Mexico, Portugal, Russia, Spain and more.

During her career, she has appeared on the front of the magazine in silhouette, dressed as a queen, covered in paint, topless and even naked.

Kate is a more conventional cover star than US Vogue's April models, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who caused a storm in the fashion world as the first rapper and reality TV star ever to be chosen for the prestigious job.

US Vogue boss Anna Wintour defended the controversial decision in her editor's letter, saying: "Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it.

"I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)."
