Given that most models walking the runways these days are half her age, the fact that Kate Moss is still beating them to high-profile fashion editorial jobs is nothing short of remarkable.

The supermodel, 38, has landed the cover and a lengthy spread in the new June/July issue of U.S. Harper's Bazaar.

The shoot, which was shot by photographer Terry Richardson and took place in Jamaica, sees her showcase the best of high summer fashion.

Chain reaction: Kate Moss poses on the beach in Jamaica for the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar

Proving her body has never looked better, Ms Moss wears a belted Yves Saint Laurent dress to the beach at Laughing Waters and the home of the late playwright Nol Coward.

The sheer chainmail fabric clings to her frame, now distinctly more curvy than it was two decades ago, when she became the face of the 'heroin chic' trend of the Nineties.

Another look returns to Calvin Klein, the label she fronted in her early days as a model, as she strikes a pose in a woven top, bandeau and bottoms from the label.

Black is the new black: Apparently the sombre looks worn by Ms Moss are the next big beachwear trend

A nod to her love of clothing from decades past, the stylist has accessorised the ensemble with a vintage hat.

It makes for a sombre seaside look, but the magazine insists that 'black at the beach has never felt so right'.

The hue continues throughout the fashion spread with a Dolce & Gabbana lace bodysuit and Herve Leger swimsuit.

Showstopping: The supermodel wears a white ostrich feather Alexander McQueen gown on the cover

Another all-black look comprising of a Salvatore Ferragamo cover-up and a Roberto Cavalli bikini offers a glimpse of her perfectly flat stomach.

The cover image calls always calls for more of a statement, and this came in the form of a showstopping Alexander McQueen gown covered in fluffy white ostrich feathers.

Bold cherry red lips and nails complete the look.

The June/July issue of Harper's Bazaar will be on newsstands from May 29. Click below to see the complete shoot.
