Now this piece is probably more suited to my friend over at http://bespokendreams.blogspot.com/ as its about this years big weddings, but i am thinking more about the guest list than the bride. I refer of course to the battle of the Kates, Moss vs Middleton.
While i was in New York i lost count of the times i was asked about the Royal Wedding, the Americans refer to the princess in waiting as Katherine, and the hype about the occasion is incredible, if possible they are more excited stateside than we are. The US glossy magazines are gearing up for a blitz of coverage in March and April, Jewellery designers like Kenneth Jay Lane have been asked to select their fantasy wedding gift and replicas of the infamous engagement ring have been reproduced and sold in their thousands.
The invitations to the royal day have gone out (i wonder to they go 1st Class with Royal Mail?) and rumours are in overdrive that Mr & Mrs Beckham are on the guest list, even for a seasoned event dresser like Victoria Beckham, this will mean some extra planning time....as protocol and the magnitude of the occasion must be considered., Mrs B knows better than to cause a spectacle, unlike Liz Hurley who once attended a friend wedding flashing leopard print knickers to the waiting paparazzi.
Although the eyes of the world maybe on William & Kates nuptials, the eyes of the fashion world will be firmly fixed on another Kates big day, the icon that is Kate Moss. Not only will we be feverishly looking to get a glimpse of the brides chosen dress, but the guests too, the star studded attendees from fashion and music will provide a mighty spectacle, i do hope she doesn't keep it all under wraps.
What does one wear to a wedding of someone with such style credentials, i would look to the bride her self for inspiration, some of my all time favourite outfits have been inspired by Ms Moss, this velvet cape she wore to the 2008 wedding of Rock royalty Leah Wood, led me to pick up a label called Kite & Butterfly, who do amazing fringed devore capes (available at www.my-wardrobe.com/kite-butterfly)
