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.
Vogue September 2011
Model: Kate Moss
Ph: Mario Testino
Oh Neytiri, you are so adorable with that cropped hair. I didn’t fully appreciate Zoe after Avatar until the Academy Awards when she wore that stunning purple Givenchy Spring Couture that made her certainly the most fabulous woman of the night. GQ may not have the most interesting editorials that feature they’re obviously sexy females, but I’m really loving this. What I love is that she isn’t vamped up and the photos seem to have this natural and free vibe about them. Of course, I really love the Stella McCartney and that gray Versace bikini, but that’s a whole other story.

At the moment I find myself being immersed and lost in the sea of resort/cruise collections while listening to the likes of Patsy Cline, The Beatles, to Kelis and Goldfrapp. The eclectic mix of music is appropriate for the varieties of collections I have been studying. While fashion weeks tend to be Christmas to me, resort collections are essentially the pre-game to the whole extravaganza and gets me excited and fills my void until Spring or Fall fashion week comes around in the Fall and Spring respectively. Regardless how I fap to these presentations and jump like a schoolgirl, I believe I have created a list of my favorite so far into the season, even though after doing so I want to change a few. The list is my original list, but I feel I’d put Proenza higher with their amaze-ball bags and prints and I grow deeper in love with Stella McCartney with her rose, electric blue, and to-die-for florals. So here we go:
The Costume Institute’s annual gala at the Met is known for over the top fashion that tops any other fashion event. Models, the fashion industry, designers, and celebrities alike show up wearing the best gowns and get-ups, generally in theme of the event. Last year we had The Model as Muse and it was fantastic from Madonna’s Louis Vuitton bunny ears to co-chair Kate Moss in a fabulous Marc Jacobs complete with turban. Rachel Zoe couldn’t say it any better: I die.
This year, the gala underwhelmed and brought in a lot of whorish makeup and wackadoo getups. The “(insert designer) for Gap” was absolutely ridiculous and I was expecting more on that red carpet. Some of the favorites such as the Olsen’s, Kate Moss, and a certain Lady Gaga (we’ll get to the performance outfite later), who performed at the gala, were M.I.A.
I had to search around and finally settled on pictures from Style.com. I wanted to see what my models were sporting and they actually looked better than most celebrities, go figure. My choices are obvious and some a bit unconventional maybe. I didn’t just choose based on a pretty dress, but by not being safe, confidence, personality and much more. Well, here’s to my favorites in no particular order:
Karlie Kloss – Donna Karan
How lovely does little Karlie look? She is wearing this purple Donna Karan and completely owning it. I love her and want her on the red carpet more often. What a cute, pretty girl.
Chloë Sevigny – Proenza Schouler
Okay, this might seem for an odd choice, but I really love her Proenza. It’s completely Chloë in every way. While she could have given more at this event, I love this choice and the colors. Ah! way to go, Chloë!
Anne Hathaway – Valentino
I’m trying to figure out why her hair is as such. Last year she had a whore-ish, voluminous look and now it seems she is trying to counteract that. I suppose I can get over it because she went all fairy princess and looks sexy as well. This is the sort of thing Taylor Swift would have worn, but alas it would have been just as predictable on her as what she wore at the event. Boring, T-Swift, boring. Here, I think Anne almost gets best dressed of the night. So lovely.
Chanel Iman – Michael Kors
Now I might be crazy, but at least this is how you would do a jumpsuit, if one ever had to wear one, which I hope one would not. She actually looks completely fabulous and rocks it, so what do I care? Hey Tina, this is how you do it.
Anna Wintour/daughter Bee Shaffer – Chanel Haute Couture/Balenciaga
I chose to put them together because I feel they look best together. Anna is always divine while her daughter is sexy in Balenciaga. Love.
Tom Ford – Tom Ford
Who else looks better in a suit than Tom Ford?! He is so damn sexy I would consider taking a bite to taste this man. The real thing at question here is: Who looks good in a pink suit jacket? I think we have our answer ladies and gentlemen.
Jessica Stam – Rachel Roy
I just really liked this and maybe it’s because I adore Stam. What can I say? Girlfriend looks sexy.
Kate Bossworth – Valentino Haute Couture
This is a very interesting gown and I love her choices throughout the years. I love that she’s never exactly safe and takes those risks. Now only if we could find an acting career somewhere here…
Coco Rocha – Zac Posen
This dress is definitely over the top. I hated the swabs of fabric training behind her, but I saw multiple views and she knew how to carry that thing indeed.
Lily Donaldson – Marc Jacobs
One word: Sex.
Sarah Jessica Parker – Halston Heritage
Take away the Carrie head blossom and we have a winner. Ding-ding-ding!
Naomi Watts – Stella McCartney
How awesome is this. I don’t even know why I adore this. She’s looks gorgeous in this color and I’m glad she chose something interesting and fun.
Jennifer Lopez – Zuhair Murad
Can’t say she never takes risks. While she’s not my favorite, she definitely hit it on point last night.
Oprah Winfrey – Oscar de la Renta
I initially thought of this as a big, poufy mess. I got over it and noticed she werked this number and I’m glad she didn’t go her normal route of gowns. Get it, girl!
I don’t hide my fascination, love, and devotion to Kate Moss. No, so maybe I am stuck and shoved somewhere up her waif-ish ass, but it’s okay. She’s the best of the best, the top of the top, and I love her dearly for every time she hung out a window, upside down and smoking while clearly intoxicated and probably on coke. I cherish those moments and I cherish her. She obviously has her life mostly together and she still is grand.
While I’ll never suggest one to wear fur, I think she looks absolutely marvelous and she can wear whatever she chooses, because she takes the chances and generally pulls off anything flawlessly, hot messes and all. She has the greatest sense of personal style, it makes me envious. Who can pull off all of that leather, Balmain booties I believe, and all of that fur. It really makes me wonder if any of that is faux. I mean, she is best friends with Stell McCartney and we all know her stance on fur, so maybe Kate listens to her friends, or they just let her make her own decisions. Either way, you can’t hate on this woman. If you’re hating, take a turn to the left and get the fuck out!
