Yesterday many details of Kate Moss' wedding (which will take place on Friday July 1st) were revealed. Many details have already leaked: Jamie Hince's best "man" will be Alison Mosshart, co-founder of The Kills; the head bridesmaids will be Lila Grace (Kate's daughter) and Iris (Sadie Frost's daughter). Since May it has been known that Mario Testino will be the official photographer of the event; moreover, according to some rumors, Kate has already arranged a big dressing room filled up with Ossie Clark dresses, in case her friends want to change outfit and wear something vintage.
But the point we would like to learn more about - at weddings everybody wants to know more about it, because it's such a juicy detail - is Moss' wedding dress. According to tabloids and magazines, the presumed list of designers is endless, and it's not hard to see why: Moss knows everybody in the world of fashion and she needs no introduction.
On the other hand, she's such a creative and classy woman, that she could have found a vintage dress or designed it herself (some time ago, Vivienne Westwood said this was an option). There's a lot of social pressure on world-known celebrities like Moss, similar to the pressure of common people on aristocracy at the end of the 19th century: many think promoting the national fashion industry is one of their duties. For this reason, the presumed list now includes a handful of British designers only, from Stella McCartney to Sarah Burton (I don't think this is an option, because I guess Kate has no intention to be associated to Kate Middleton).
Now it's important to remember what Telegraph reported in February 2011: according to sources, while attending a dinner party hosted by Topshop, Kate announced she had chosen John Galliano as the designer of her wedding dress. Back then, things were different: Galliano still was the creative director at Dior.
But the dismissal hasn't affected his relation with Moss: the model could take advantage of her wedding and help Galliano to clear his name. After watching this backstage video of Galliano spring/summer 1994 fashion show, where the designer - like a loving father - instructs a young Moss on how to control the movements of her crinoline, the option becomes more and more possible.
