The first photo of Kate Moss's photo shoot for Playboy magazine has been revealed! The magazine released a SFW shot of Ms. Moss on their Facebook page today, featuring her crouching on the floor while wearing the brand's iconic Playboy Bunny costume. Kate will be featured in the magazine as part of Playboy's 60th anniversary issue, which will be released in January 2014. There's no word on if Kate will go nude for Playboy, although she has certainly gone without clothing in the past for various ad campaigns and photo shoots. Other celebrities who have gotten naked for Playboy include Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, and Drew Barrymore.
Is that Claire Danes or her Homeland character, Carrie Mathison, on the cover of Vogue's August issue? Danes, who plays a CIA agent on the hit show, is so in character on the cover and in the pages of the magazine that it's a little difficult to make the distinction.
It doesn't hurt that her costar Damian Lewis, who plays Marine Nicholas Brody, has a guest spot in some of the pictures, making it look a little like photographer Annie Leibovitz showed up on the set with a camera and a rack of designer clothing. But in the coordinating interview, Danes told Vogue writer Elizabeth Rubin that even though she's connected with her character, being on the highly charged political drama has "not really" changed how she thinks.
"I think growing up in New York in a very liberal environment, I confused jingoism with patriotism, and that mistake has been corrected as I've reconsidered what the potential cost of serving our country can be," Danes said. "But I don't think I've become more of a political beast."
If you need any more proof of Danes's power as an actor, take a look at more photos from her Vogue shoot here.
Who better to inspire a swimwear makeover than the sun-kissed Miranda Kerr facing off for Net-A-Porter's swimsuit issue? Clad in this season's hottest suits from the likes of Zimmermann, Melissa Odabash, and Norma Kamali, the Aussie supermodel is just as at ease sunbathing on the beach in a barely-there bikini as she is hitting the sidewalk in any number of her perfectly effortless street-styled ensembles.
It's the Miranda Kerr effect — off duty and on, she inspires a wave of copycats. Now, we can't help but want the same sleek, sexy one-pieces or breezy cover-ups. Not only does she show off the perfect beach escape wardrobe, but she also talks a bit about family and leaving her Victoria's Secret family behind — proving that she's not just a pretty face. Click through to see Miranda hit the beach in a lineup of luxe beach gear while garnering her trademark wisdom from the interview — then head over to Net-A-Porter for the full story.
Who is Dita Von Teese? The question was asked — and answered — in a new interview with Lifestyle Mirror. Behind the burlesque bombshell facade, there's, well, a burlesque bombshell. Von Teese revealed that she doesn't "have a persona" to put on. "People responded to me well and enjoyed watching me perform when I was being myself, and not trying to be sexy or trying to be somebody that I wasn't."
That wasn't all Von Teese had to say. Her best quotes from the interview, along with an exclusive behind-the-scenes video and a first look at the gorgeous vintage-inspired editorial spread, here in the gallery.
She may have graced countless covers, editorials, and major campaigns, but Coco Rocha says that doesn't mean she's a supermodel.
"I cannot ever call myself a supermodel. That was an era in time — when Naomi worked — and those girls owned the industry," Rocha explained in a recent interview with Time. "Nowadays, you do one cover and if it gets a lot of hype, you're considered a supermodel."
But even if she doesn't consider herself in the same league as Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen, and Naomi Campbell — her cojudge in the upcoming modeling-contest TV show The Face — Rocha has definitely succeeded in building her brand the modern way. "For any model who starts today, they have to go with the flow of here and now — for me, it was embracing social media." And boy, has she. The "nonsupermodel" currently has over 462,000 Twitter followers — and counting.
For that reason — and despite her protests — we can't help but feel that Rocha is definitely a supermodel for this day and age. A look at all the gorgeous images that prove it, in the slideshow.

Last night, Adele raked in six amazing Grammy awards including the win for best album of the year for 21. With millions of fans behind her back, the golden girl, recently recovered from throat surgery, shows no signs of slowing down.

Read below to hear what Adele has to say about her love for Beyoncé, making red-carpet appearances, and her loud personality. Then, visit Vogue.com to see the whole story unfold.
On Beyoncé: "She's been a huge and constant part of my life as an artist since I was about ten or eleven. I love how all of her songs are about empowerment. Even when she's married and Jay-Z put a ring on it, she releases 'Single Ladies.' Go get yours. Go get what you deserve. I think she's really inspiring. She's beautiful. She's ridiculously talented, and she is one of the kindest people I've ever met."
On making red-carpet appearances:: "I hate the red carpet. I don't feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don't want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp."
On her personality: "I am quite loud and bolshie. I'm a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud."
