The recent news about Kate Moss wedding have been swept away for a while by new others but the event has been photographed, of course, and has received a fabulous spread in Vogue. The wedding of Kate Moss and The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince has been shot by famous fashion photographer Mario Testino who has worked with the model for twenty years and has a book dedicated to her called Kate Moss by Mario Testino.
Kate Moss’ wedding photos look wonderful and very romantic capturing the atmosphere of “soft focus” as Moss wanted: “I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft-focus. The Great Gatsby.” Moss has also opened to Vogue about the couple’s decision to marry, well her decision to marry him as he was asking her to every day. And the documentary on the British TV My Big Fat Gypsy had a lot to do with this:
I am so romantic about Gypsies. They’re not allowed to do anything until they get married. So they all get married really young, at sixteen. You can’t believe the dresses. They’re like blinging butterflies times ten; they can’t move down the aisle! It’s so genius.
I was just watching Jamie, so cute, and I was like, these girls, they just spend their whole life waiting for that day—let’s do it!
And so the big preparation began. Moss had her friend designer John Galliano who has been at rehab at the moment design a dress for her that was inspired by vintage glam of the thirties:
a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I’ve lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. But it’s so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that’s going into the dress!
The dress turned out fabulous detailed with paillettes and flowers. Galliano admitted that “she dared me to be John Galliano again” adding that he couldn’t “pick up a pencil” but designing a dress has helped him in a form of creative therapy.
The Vogue cover story by Hamish Bowles is as picturesque as Mario Testino‘s photos. The Vogue September 2011 issue bears the cover with Kate Moss in a purple Alexander McQueen fairy-tale-like dress with deep decolletage and jewel details.
