Kate Moss' Esquire Cover Is Model's First Men's Magazine Appearance In 17 Years (PHOTOS)

Just because Kate Moss is approaching her forties doesn't mean she's slowing down... or covering up. This year, we've seen a clothesless campaign for Versace, a clothesless campaign for self-tanner and now, a near-naked, bejeweled Moss on the cover of Esquire UK.

For her first appearance on the front of a men's magazine in 17 years (her last was Arena, in 1996), Kate covers up (in comparison to her latest works, at least) in a sheer, bedazzled bodysuit bearing artfully placed oversized crystals. The theme of Esquire's September issue is "Made In Britain" -- and who better to represent the UK than their supermodel crown jewel?

"For too long [Kate Moss] has been monopolised by women’s fashion magazines," Esquire editor Alex Bilmes says. "So I am thrilled that we’ve persuaded her to front our special issue dedicated to this country’s most stylish people and products. I really can’t imagine anyone better suited to the job."

Neither can we. Take a look at Kate's blinged-out bod below. Get comfortable in guys' eyelines again, Kate: We hear she'll be covering another legendary men's magazine soon.
