Kate Moss has channelled Marilyn Monroe for a glamorous make-up advertising campaign in the week following her 50th birthday.

The supermodel, who marked turning the milestone age last Tuesday with a celebration in Paris, leads a bevy of famous faces, including model Jourdan Dunn, 33, and actress US actress Michaela Jaé, 33, in a photoshoot for entrepreneur Charlotte Tilbury.

Moss, who was one of the first models to wear Tilbury's makeup on the red carpet, smoulders as she looks dead into the camera to show off the red lipstick.

With her hair in loose waves, as she donned a red satin strapless dress, matching leather gloves and a diamond necklace, the mother-of-one was every inch the picture of Hollywood glamour.

In the accompanying video advertisement, Moss is also seen wearing diamond bracelets with her arms outstretched as she dances surrounded by male admirers, reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

Tilbury, who also appears in some of the images, first met Kate on a magazine photoshoot in the 1990s at the height of her supermodel fame.

They went on to build a firm friendship. Tilbury was also a guest at Moss' birthday bash, which was held at the Ritz Hotel in Paris and Restaurant Laurent, which is set in an Art Deco mansion.

The model was also featured in a more subtle look in a lilac dress and blush pink makeup.

The new collection, Hollywood Beauty Icon Lipsticks, is available now.
