Kate the Great!
To be honest, I was anticipating the summer nuptials of Kate Moss and Jamie Hince much more than either the UK or the Monaco royal weddings. I mean, we’re talking Kate Moss. One of the greatest models of all time, the queen of music festival chic and the reigning British It Girl of the last few decades.
This woman is worshiped the world over, by us commoners for her closet, her covetable style, her TopShop lines and her undeniable je ne sais quoi, and by ad execs, retailers and design houses for her never-ending marketability. She’s been the muse for entire fashion collections, had statues and art exhibits dedicated to her and been the subject of multiple books. She’s one of the most easily recognizable faces in the world and one of the most highly photographed women in London. She’s even famous for her exes, including her daughter Lila Grace’s father Dazed & Confused founder Jefferson Hack, movie star Johnny Depp (swoon) and Babyshambles & Libertine’s front-man, frequent rehaber and tabloid staple, Pete Doherty…
And it’s official, Kate Moss is married!
Guests included Manolo Blahnik, Stefano Pilati, Carine Roitfeld, Daphne Guinness, Marc Jacobs, Terry Richardson, Jack White, Karen Elson, Kelly Osbourne, Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Jefferson Hack, Stella McCartney…
Now for the good stuff!
The dress was custom John Galliano, sprinkled with rhinestones and covered in lace and gold floral accents, creating a fairytale feel for the event.
The jewels were minimal and included a diamond tennis bracelet and Kate’s gorgeous vintage 1920’s engagement ring from S.J. Philips, her favorite jeweler on Bond Street.
The floor-length Galliano veil was 1920’s inspired with floral details and a scattering of gems.
The fifteen flower girls wore custom-made Bonpoint dresses with white ballet flats and floral wreathes adorning their loose waves, conjuring up a vision of ethereal Kate as Titania followed by her handmaidens.
And although you can’t see them, the bride wore a pair of custom-made Manolo Blahnik shoes with pale blue insoles. Speaking of Something Blue, a beaming Jamie wore a pale blue double-breasted Stefano Pilati for YSL suit with his rocker shades.
The wedding was followed by three, count them, three days of celebrating both at Kate’s Cotswolds estate and the local pub. Gotta love a glamour girl who takes her A-list buddies to the local dive bar for drinks after her wedding!
Oh, and another thing only Kate the Great can pull off? Her rehearsal dinner dress…
