After posing for the cover a record 33 times, British Vogue figured they'd let Kate Moss just edit the thing. The mag announced today that Moss has signed on as a contributing editor, and her first story will be published this spring. For those unfamiliar with fashion magazines, "story" doesn't necessarily mean a piece of writing — Moss will be styling photo shoots, basically.
Editor-in-chief Alexandra Shulman said she was "absolutely delighted" to be working with Moss, as well she should be — Moss has sold a lot of magazines for her. You can see the supermodel's first cover from 1993 at right.
Though Moss is a trailblazer in the supermodel world in many ways (and certainly one of the most successful models still working), she isn't the first to edit a magazine. Naomi Campbell joined Interview in 2011. And Coco Rocha contributed to PC Mag over the summer.
And Vogue editor is now just one of Moss's many side gigs — she will debut a new collection for Topshop in April. She's also filming a music video for Paul McCartney (with — drama — her old flame Johnny Depp). No word on what Vogue will pay Moss for her fashion expertise, but she probably doesn't need it. Her net worth is estimated at $160 million.
