Vogue September 2011: Kate Moss

Kate in McQueen

I still claim that my invitation was lost somewhere in the mail. Kate’s wedding was the wedding to be at, and such a darling wedding at that. Who cares about the royal wedding nonsense when the Kate Moss is getting married?

First off, I want to thank Anna Wintour for not only providing a lovely cover, but providing us all with a brilliant idea for the September issue: Kate’s wedding. She is but the queen, am I right?

Going through the photos, some big names were in attendance at her wedding. There was Stella McCartney and her father, Paul McCartney, Jack White and Karen Elson, Hamish Bowles, Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs,  Daphne Guinness, Lara Stone, and many others were all their to witness the nuptials and the soiree that happened after. Such a charming celebration it must have been.

For photos, follow the cut or go to Vogue.com. I know I will be purchasing this issue the moment I find it on newsstands.

The Met Ball: Angela, Karlie, Raquel, Lily, and Jessica

Angela Lindvall  in Andrew Gn Pre Fall 2011 and Karlie Kloss  in Christian Dior were captured together at the Met Ball. While Lindvall looks forever youthful, we have to hand it to Kloss for bringing out her beauty and maturity. The cropped hair is also fresh.

Supermodel, Raquel Zimmermann, was ravishing in black, feathered Alexander McQueen with a McQueen clutch to match. If everyone stuck to the theme like Raquel, the night would have been that much more exciting and interesting.

Lily Donaldson wore a blue lace Erdem Spring 2011 dress and looked super chic. Many were worried about the gown, but she looked sexy with a touch of delicate beauty.

Last but not least on my model watch, Jessica Stam. I was surprised to see Jessica so prim and sweet in a dressed made for her by Tommy Hilfiger. She paired the saccharine tulle with a Chopard 50-carot diamond necklace. I found this unexpected for her, since she usually adorns herself in this street fashion, rock girl and it was definitely a lovely surprise.

*Doutzen, Natalia, and Gisele looked fabulous too, but everybody knows that already.


Alexander McQueen: Lindsey Wixson

Whoever was in charge of casting: Look at your life. Look at your choices.

While I’ll never truly understand Wixson’s purpose, at times she can actually be really pretty, in that underage, blow-up doll, fetus sort of way, but that’s besides the point. I really love this campaign and the amount of detail that is in the dress. The Alexander McQueen namesake is pushing on strong and I’m still fervently trying to purchase a McQueen silk scarf or few, but I don’t know if Wixson was the correct choice and direction. The odd, young beauty in no way evokes what Alexander McQueen stands for in my perception, so I’m confused at the casting. It could have been so much better.


More Alexander McQueen

More from Sarah Burton’s Resort Collection for McQueen. Absolutely brilliant. I wish I could see the design process. The leathers, the silks, the lace, all of it. This makes me want to pursue and increase my knowledge not only of the apparel industry, but to practice the craft. The intricate details and sheer beauty of everything from fabrics to silhouettes intrigues me. I’m glad Sarah Burton is continuing Mr. McQueen’s craft and genius.
