The bride wore a sleeveless dress by longtime friend John Galliano, the former Christian Dior designer who is currently on trial for spouting racist slurs and anti-Semitic remarks at a Paris cafe in late February. The floor-length slim gown had a vintage flavor with gold embellishments throughout, most noticeably near its hemline.
Hince, who along with Alison Mosshart forms the band The Kills, chose a double-breasted powder blue Yves Saint Laurent suit with fitted trousers. Moss’ daughter Lila (whose father is Jefferson Hack) was also part of the wedding party. Moss and Hince met in 2007.
Naomi Campbell, Kelly Osbourne, Sadie Frost, Rhys Ifans and Topshop chief Philip Green were among the guests at the ceremony. The wedding celebration is expected to last several days.
Moss was previously engaged to British singer Pete Doherty and dated Johnny Depp for years in the 1990s.
Moss has been wearing Galliano and Christian Dior for many years, walked in many Galliano shows — but in the midst of his dismissal from Dior — to support him by wearing his design signals both a great loyalty, and an effort to help re-start his fashion career (he still has his own eponymous label).
It seems Moss and a lot of her supermodel friends are going to make a big effort to show how much they love Galliano. Now that he’s out of rehab, he might be ready to jump back into the design fray. But first, he has to clear his reputation — and Kate’s wearing his gown is a great way to show that his famous friends are by his side.
