That, my friends, is the epic cover for US Vogue‘s September Issue 2011. You couldn’t really want more than a customized Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2011 gown on Kate Moss, could you?
Inside the issue to beat all issues, Kate has a gorgeous spread of wedding photos that feature friends, family, and new husband Jamie Hince in Rodarte.
In the accompanying interview with Hamish Bowles:
After two years together, they took a romantic sabbatical to Thailand: “We were just so loved up, and he asked me to marry him every day.”
The day Kate finally said yes (while watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding): “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!”
Her dream wedding: “I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft-focus. The Great Gatsby. The code name was GG for a while. That light and that kind of fun decadence. It’s rock-’n’-roll Great Gatsby!”
The controversy-ridden John Galliano on designing Mrs Hince’s wedding dress: “She dared me to be John Galliano again. I couldn’t pick up a pencil. It’s been my creative rehab.”
Coco Rocha is absolutely magnetic, isn’t she? Photographed here for “The Shock of The New” by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in the August 2011 issue of Elle UK, she is steaming with confidence. The always-excellent stylist Anne-Marie Curtis has draped Coco in some of the Fall/Winter best from Prada, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Giorgio and Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, and more.

If I thought Beyonce had gone anywhere, this post would start with a hearty “Beyonce is Back!”. Last night, her long-awaited music video for “Run the World (Girls)” debuted with more fashion glory than a September day at Somerset House. So, what did she wear?
1. A red Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 2010 dress with embroidered gold detail and thigh-high, gold-heeled Alexander McQueen Grinling Gibbons, same collection.
2. She dances – like never before – in a black Norma Kamali fringed garment with golden harness and black bustier, continuing the fringe down to some Alexander Wang heels.
3. A brief appearance by the white Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 Couture gown. The gown designed for fierceness.
4. Cue the slo-mo water and cue the dark Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2011 Couture outfit with a tailcoat and heavy cut-outs.
5. Be still, style heart. Unaware of the car in flames behind her, Warrior Beyonce gets into an ultra mini Gareth Pugh Fall/Winter 2011 turtleneck dress and gold-mirrored Gareth Pugh ankle boots.
6. Dance break = outfit change. This time it’s a gold-embroidered Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2010 yellow dress paired with studded and feathered Sergio Rossi Gladiator boots.
7. Emilio Pucci number two; a long-sleeved goddess gown in green with a thigh-high split and sequined sleeve from Fall/Winter 2011.
This week, everyone and anyone in the media eye seemed to have congregated to one location:, the annual Met Costume Institute Gala (or “Met Gala“). This year, the Vogue-created ball celebrated the life and work of the late, great Alexander McQueen and ended up raising $10.8 million for the Costume Institute.
While thirteen McQueen gowns were worn, the best of the red carpet best are below: View Post
