The fashion world has collided with Playboy for the magazine’s 60th anniversary issue. They’ve enlisted legendary British model Kate Moss to grace their celebratory cover (posing in traditional bunny costume, of course) and called on fashion photographers Mert & Marcus to capture the model for both the cover and a full spread inside the issue.

Now, it appears even Marc Jacobs is involved! The designer is set to host a party in London tonight (Monday 2nd), directly after the British Fashion Awards where Kate will receive a special award for her long career – a Special Recognition Award.

The party will take place at the Playboy club in Mayfair and Jacobs will host the special night filled with entertainment. Kate and Marc go way back – she has regularly walked the catwalk for his always memorable shows, including a special appearance at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week 2011 where she smoked while making her way down the runway in a skimpy black look that showed off her legs – just one of many iconic moments in her career. Marc previously commented on Kate and their special friendship:

“I think we just genuinely like each other and I think we have many of the same interests… she’s just a really stylish girl.”
