Supermodel Kate Moss turned 40 Thursday, and she marked the significant birthday with a Playboy magazine cover and nude photo layout, complete with black stilettos and bunny ears.

Moss’ career doesn’t seem to suffer as she ages. She ranked No. 7 on Forbes' list of the world’s highest paid models in 2013, pulling in $5.7 million.

In celebration of the big 4-0, Agence France-Presse reports Moss is partying on Necker Island with friends and her husband, The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince.

Moss has maintained her place in the high-fashion, ultra-competitive modeling world since she was discovered at age 14 in an airport. Part of her magnetism comes from her attitude.

"Kate has always represented a rock 'n' roll attitude. From the movie star boyfriends to the wardrobe filled with vintage finds, Kate is simply cool," Grazia magazine fashion editor Katherine Ormerod told AFP. “Her legendary parties and glamorous costumes make her more than just another model. Plus Kate's style — which has remained constant with a host of signatures, rather than following every single trend — is inimitable.”

Writer Chris Roberts thought Moss’s 40th was a great opportunity to write a book about the model and her unusually long career in the youth-obsessed fashion world. Titled simply “Kate Moss,” the book tracks her career through the many fluctuations, including the scandal when she was photographed doing cocaine.

Roberts said that he’s never met Moss, but compiled the book through reports and interviews.

“You won't find anyone with a bad word to say about her who knows her because a) they are friends, and b) there is this kind of fierce loyalty around her, there is a protective circle,” Roberts told the Telegraph. “There's a very kind of defensive, loyal circle to whom she is loyal to in return as long as they don't air her dirty laundry.”
