The details of the supermodel’s role are yet to be fully revealed, but according to the announcement, she will use “Diet Coke as a canvas to inspire generations” and will “bring her unique aesthetic and style to the brand and build on Diet Coke’s impressive legacy of partnering with some of the world’s leading fashion designers.” Moss will specifically work on the new Diet Coke ‘Love What You Love’ campaign, spotlighting “individuals who embrace a positive attitude to life” alongside the brand’s 40th anniversary programme this year.
