Kate Moss’ wedding to rocker beau Jamie Hince appears to have been a star-studded affair in the English countryside, according to a slew of new details released Thursday.
The supermodel and the Kills guitarist were wed July 1 In the Cotswolds, where the likes of Jude Law and his ex, Sadie Frost; Paul McCartney and his designing daughter Stella; fellow glamazon Naomi Campbell and more descended upon the 17th-century castle where the event was hosted.
‘I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft-focus,’ Moss told Vogue. ‘'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’!’'
Moss and Hince, who announced their engagement in February, proceeded down a daisy-lined path from a charming old church to a reception filled with Edwardian wicker furniture, to be sat upon by their famous pals.
Sixteen bridesmaids and flower girls, including daughter Lila Grace, attended to Kate on her big day. Frost, Stella McCartney and designer Vivienne Westwood were in the bridal party.
Campbell, in Givenchy, looked on as a six-tiered Peggy Porschen wedding cake (an ambitious size for a for the notoriously thin bride) was circled by Jack White, Marc Jacobs, Manolo Blahnik, Mario Testino and old-school rock women Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull.
While Moss has had her turbulent moments in the public eye, the day was drama free -- save one minor detail. Her dress, a cream-and-gold confection modeled after a Jazz Age Zelda Fitzgerald, was designed by John Galliano. Fashion’s persona non grata since his multiple episodes of alleged anti-Semitism and firing from the house of Dior, Galliano gave Vogue a few comments on designing for Kate.
‘She was very professional and very demanding ... she dared me to be John Galliano again,’ Galliano said. ‘I couldn’t pick up a pencil. It’s been my creative rehab.’
Moss and Hince, who met in 2007, live in North London with Lila.
