Fashion’s Royal Wedding: Kate Moss Weds Jamie Hince in Galliano

 Just as Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen gown and open carriage ride was perfect for the future Princess of Wales, Kate Moss’s boho-chic ceremony and A-list guests was the only way for a model and rocker to tie the knot.  Moss lived up to her style icon, rebel ways wearing a custom John Galliano chiffon and jewel encrusted gown. The embattled designer who has recently been dethroned at Dior and John Galliano for outlandish behavior proved that despite his personal troubles he is still a creative force and perfectly embodied Moss’s relaxed elegance.

The simple silhouette was accented by beautiful chiffon, gold sequins and Moss’s signature model physique.  Her loose waves, minimal make-up and veil completed the whole romantic feel and coordinated with the band of flowers her fourteen pint sized bridesmaids wore.  

There was no doubt that this original fashionista, who has designed a collection for Top Shop and garnered as much attention for the clothes she wears off the runway as on, would require multiple costume changes.  Grazia reported Moss changed out of her custom creation into three additional bespoke duds by best friend and famed designer Stella McCartney. Among her costume changes was a very model-esq micro mini dress for the after party, which reportedly included performances from Iggy Pop and Snoop Dog alike and was named “Mosstock” by locals who saw Gloucestershire County turned upside by the extravaganza.  What do you expect when a super model marries a rockstar?  

The party got underway the night before when Kate donned a vintage frock to the rehearsal dinner as her “something blue.”  Although the choice wasn’t as decidedly chic as her wedding dress it did add to the impossible cool factor of the event and was a cute nod at bridal tradition. Ever one to bend the rules and set trends it will be interesting to see which Kate takes the cake in terms of inspiring brides-to-be.

    Humm….I think she looks unkempt and not very polished for a bride, you can pull off the “au naturel” look successfully but at least brush your hair and add a dab of lipstick to your lips, not feeling “this look”. Hope that whatever this lacked in polish will more than be made up for in years of happiness, love and honor in their marriage..wishing them the best!
