It's a look she would have struggled to pull off during her years as a super-waif.

But time appears to have blessed supermodel Kate Moss with the curves needed to resemble one of the best-known sex symbols of the 1960s in a new shoot for Vanity Fair magazine.

In a string-vest to cover her modesty, heavy eyeliner and her hair tousled, Miss Moss pouts in the manner of former French model and actress Brigitte Bardot.

The striking image of Miss Moss, 38, is used in a series of photographs for the magazine's December issue.

Miss
Moss, who has a nine-year-old daughter Grace from a previous
relationship, is now happily married to Jamie Hince, guitarist with
Indie rock band The Kills.

The
pair now live in London’s leafy Highgate area and Miss Moss has
reportedly cut back on her partying in order to try for a baby with Mr
Hince.

In her new autobiography Kate Moss distances herself from the term 'heroin chic, saying she never touched the drug.

The nickname was given to Kate in 1993 and sparked a trend where young women were desperate to copy her look.

However despite being branded as one, Kate Moss says she was never a user and was given the nickname because people thought she looked like she took heroin.

'If I was anorexic or if I was on heroin, maybe I would have been a bit more “Oh dear!”,' she told the Daily Mirror.

'But I wasn't any of those things that they were painting me to be.

A friend of Miss Moss – who is known
for her wild antics and former drug-use – previously said : 'Kate has
made no secret among her circle that she’d love to have a baby with
Jamie.'

'There’s no doubt in my mind that the prospect of another child is a massive motivation for her to clean up her act.

'She eats like a horse now, too, while back in her catwalk days she could easily “forget” to have lunch and dinner.

'She’s still Kate, but she’s somehow different. It’s a change for the better, if you ask me.'
