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.”
Mrs Jamie Hince – aka supermodel Kate Moss – nabbed next month’s cover of Vogue UK in a Miu Miu dress. The cover and accompanying shoot were lensed by Mario Testino. This is probably the best Kate cover I’ve seen in years. Love does a model good.
That said, I can’t be too wrong to expect there is a severely-bobbed, miffed Anna Wintour somewhere. Londoners got the Moss-Hince marriage cover a month before Vogue US was set to, didn’t we? Conde Nast competiton heats up?
Have you ever seen Kate Moss look so stunning/happy/lovely? For her nuptials to Jamie Hince (of The Kills), the iconic model wore love on her arms, a custom vintage-style embellished John Galliano wedding dress, Manolo Blahnik heels (with a hidden something blue) and an endless supply of bohemian beauty. The groom wore a custom Stefano Pilati for Yves Saint Laurent grey suit.
“Mosstock” was an absolute dream:
Kate’s hair – loose waves with a weaved veil – was styled by Sam McKnight.
Charlotte Tilbury on make-up artist duty.
Mario Testino snapping away.
Anna Wintour attended, wearing Prada.
Kate changed into three additional outfits by Stella McCartney, whom also designed the maid of honour’s dress.
Snoop Dogg performed at the reception.
The reception invite asked guests to bring their bathing suits and water guns.
Kate Moss is married.
WHO KNEW? Appararently she and Jamie Hince (the guitarist for the Kills) tied the knot, sans shoes, in Sicily on August 7th. Her daughter Lila Grace and baby daddy Jefferson Hack were the collective ring bearer. In what sounds like a beautiful and earthy engagement, the couple danced under the trees outside of a “picturesque church” while Moss wore a see-through dress, no makeup, and no shoes. (No shoes?!)
