Kate Moss, 43, Gets Naked For W Magazine ‘Powerful Women’ Issue

Kate Moss goes completely naked for W Magazine’s Powerful Women March issue. The 43-year-old supermodel joins other notable women like Jennifer Lopez, Taraji P. Henson, Jessica Chastain, and Donatella Versace.

Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Chastain, Donatella Versace, and Taraji P. Henson have gotten together to grace the March cover of W magazine for their annual Powerful Women issue.

The five women were shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. Each of the women gave their input on how they manage to stay on top in male-dominated professions, body image, age, and longevity.

The Powerful Women issue of W Magazine featured women of all ages, different backgrounds, and all different kinds of professions within the entertainment industry. The five women all posed in black ensembles for the cover of the special issue.

It's here! @Donatella_Versace, @JLo, @TarajiPHenson, @JessicaChastain and #KateMoss are our March 2017 cover stars. In light of political turmoil around the world where women's and immigrants' rights are under siege, an issue celebrating powerful women and diversity could not be more timely. In exclusive interviews, these rule-breakers reflect on how they have reached the top of their fields by transcending conventional notions of femininity; they come from diverse backgrounds but share the drive to “own” who they are.

Moss looked radiant in her image with a gold coat falling away from her naked body.

Kate Moss began her modeling career as a Calvin Klein model when she was a young teenager. Moss admittedly said that she had not always had the body confidence that she has now, according to Daily Mail.

“My mum said, ‘I don’t think you’re that photogenic!’ ” Cover star #KateMoss spent two years going out for castings before everything clicked. Watch the full interview on wmag.com (link in our bio).

“My mum said, ‘I don’t think you’re that photogenic!’

From the beginning, photographers always got me to take my clothes off, even though I don’t like my body at all. I just had to get comfortable with being naked.”

47-year-old singer Jennifer Lopez also spoke on the topic of body confidence.

“I never appreciated my body or my looks when I was in my 20s.”

“Now I’m like, Look at me! Look at you! Not in a conceited or arrogant way—I just appreciate myself in a way I didn’t when I was that age.”

“I have no patience for anything that’s not real. Just no bulls–t." Cover star @JLo opens up about how she's gotten more confident with age. #JenniferLopez photographed by @MertAlas & @MacPiggott, styled by @Edward_Enninful.

The mother-of-two said that she appreciates her flaws.

“And it’s not about perfection. I like the scars that I have.”

Lopez attributed her successful career to pushing the boundaries of her own comfort zone.

“I think living and pushing outside your comfort zone is the only way to be happy, ultimately.’In the middle of it, risk is uncomfortable.

But to me, there’s something super­ exciting about that. It’s probably the way I’m wired. Most people don’t like it, but I’m like, ‘Yeah! Let’s do more, let’s take more, let’s see more…’ Then I’m in it and, like, ‘Wow, this is a lot.”‘

Empire actress Taraji P. Henson addressed her success in her forties, calling herself a “late bloomer.”

“It’s supposed to be over for me at 46, but here I am. I’m a late bloomer, and I’m okay with that. Know why? Late bloomers last looong.”

“You have to see yourself inside the dream, you know? Why you gonna do something to fail? No, baby, that ain’t me! I always wanted to be one of the big dogs.” Cover star @TarajiPHenson's path to becoming the big dog she is today has been a convention-shattering study in tenacity. #TarajiPHenson photographed by @MertAlas and @MacPiggott, styled by @Edward_Enninful.

Donatella Versace,61, spoke about her own realization of the power of fashion.

“I only truly understood it recently, in the last five or six years.

Before that I felt I had to produce the ‘right’ kind of Versace collection.”

"Real power means influencing a new generation." Casa #Versace is on a roll and this is @Donatella_Versace's moment—some say her feminist moment. #DonatellaVersace photographed by @MertAlas & @MacPiggott, styled by @Edward_Enninful.

“But now I am designing for a woman who works, who has children—or maybe she doesn’t work, but she definitely has power.

The power to keep on going forward. I have to succeed in showing women that we can do more, that we are stronger than men.”
