The 39-year-old supermodel's first fashion shoot will be featured in an upcoming spring issue of the glossy magazine.

British Vogue editor, Alexandra Shulman, said: "I am absolutely delighted that Kate is going to work with us in this new role.

"Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge, and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see used in the pages of British Vogue. I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas."    

Moss, who has been on 33 British Vogue covers, will be intrinsically involved with the magazine's editor to produce fashion shoots with her choice of photographers and models.

The announcement of her post-model career plans followed the news that she will be designing again for Topshop, with a collection to be released in April 2014.

Following yesterday's news that Burberry boss Angela Ahrendt is to join Apple in a shocking departure, Moss also surprised the fashion industry with her new plans.
