The Five Things We Learned from Kate Moss' Wedding

Kate Moss’ weekend wedding to rocker Jamie Hince was, for some of us, the most anticipated nuptial of 2011 (Royal who?). The gown, the guest list, the collective wardrobe; could there be a better looking event taking place? Would it be like Glastonbury except with heels and better food, or a hippy-ish outdoor affair with lots of beautiful people in flowing caftans? Neither, as it turned out: we got super-trad with a hint of rocker around the edges. And since Moss is an international style powerhouse, her choices are sure to be copied. Here, the five important wedding style takeaways we learned this weekend:
1. The Twenties is the best decade for veils. Moss said she was inspired by Jazz Age icon Zelda Fitzgerald, and the delicate waft of tulle fastened just at her temples was so pretty, simple and carefree, we hope many more brides will follow suit.
2. Sky blue is the new navy for grooms. Hince wore a custom blue-grey double breasted suit by Stefano Pilati for Yves Saint Laurent. His shoes? Beaten up black winklepickers, of course. That Moss’s ex, Jefferson Hack, also wore a pale blue suit was either awkward or wonderfully inclusive.
3. Little girls make the best bridesmaids. Who needs a crew of groaning dress-hating hungover bridesmaids when you can assemble a group of adorable little girls, put flowers in their hair and let their unbridled joy set the tone as they walk down the aisle.
4. You can immediately change out of your wedding dress into another outfit. More than once. Moss changed at least three times—into an oyster silk chiffon dress for her first dance look, a micro-mini after-party look, and a “I’m taking a helicopter outta here” pantsuit look, all made by pal Stella McCartney.
5. Everybody loves a little tradition, even the artsiest arty types. Moss married her man in a church, in front of a vicar, in a long cream dress. That, we could never have predicted.
