Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you’d have heard that Kate Moss is set to marry her rock star fiancé, Jamie Hince, tomorrow. In true Moss style, the wedding is sure to break the mould for celebrity weddings. It’s being described as a three-day extravaganza of music, A-list guests, and unparalleled celebrations—and that’s probably an understatement.

Nicknamed “Mosstock” by the tabloids, the wedding’s musical entertainment is to be provided by Snoop Dogg, Carl Barat, Beth Ditto, Iggy Pop, and Dame Shirley Bassey. As if that stage couldn’t get any more entertaining, it’s likely the supermodel herself will serve up some amateur karaoke.

It’s rumoured that close friend John Galliano will design the bride’s gown. As Moss is always one for a well-placed scandal, it’s more or less expected. Recently, the designer’s whereabouts have been unknown, but rumours have been circling that he’s been in New York working on the dress.

Guests are not permitted to bring cameras (or snap photos with their smart phones) as the wedding will be professionally documented by none other than Mario Testino. To top it all off, one of the shots will be featured on the cover of Vogue’s September issue. Mosstock sounds like the be-all-and-end-all to weddings everywhere, but the couple did sign a pre-nuptial agreement. That could appear to foreshadow a grim ending, but who would really be opposed to a second Moss wedding in the future?

Vogue Italia: “Moss and Hince’s wedding is an indie rock kid’s dream. They’re not man and wife yet, and we’re feeling hungover already.” [Vogue Italia]

Alice Temperley: “I am certain she will look absolutely stunning, unique, beautiful with a bit of a rock n’ roll twist. I would love to see her in something vintage looking, romantic and slightly bohemian. However, whatever she chooses, she will look fantastic and I am sure women will want to wear something similar to their weddings for years to come.” [Vogue UK]

Diane von Furstenberg: “I’m not big on wedding dresses. But I would give her a bottle of my new perfume—it’s divine.” [Vogue UK]


Sarah Nicole Prickett, contributor: “It’s the royal wedding for people who wear fedoras, not fascinators. I wouldn’t get up at 5 a.m. to watch it, but I might stay up, you know, in kind of a Moss-like way. Although if she wears a dress by John Galliano, I won’t feel so favourably inclined.”
