The fashion photographer, who has worked with Moss for two decades, photographed the wedding for the US style bible. The images and the accompanying story by Hamish Bowles set as dreamy a scene as one could imagine.
The weddings fairytale nature wafted in on a train of gorgeously executed details: the pyramid of Champagne coupes for the toast; the Second Looks dressing-up tent, with its faceted mirror screens, thirties standard lamps and dressing tables heaving with pink and beige roses; the cocktail team whisked in from the Ritz Paris.
And of course, the dress: When I put the dress on, Im really happy Moss told Bowles. I forget about everything.
Moss stayed true to her choice of old friend John Galliano
through the tumult of his arrest
and time in rehab. She was certain, from the beginning, that she wanted a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind for her wedding day.
Moss and Galliano discussed the design over the phone, and then, the designer appeared for the first of four fittings, with bags full of bits, and pulled tulle and sequins and veils and flowers out. And then we just kind of pinned things together, like the old days, you know?
He created a gown inspired by photographs of Zelda Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby author F. Scotts fast-living wife. The gown sparkles with gold sequins hand-embroidered in the shape of an abstracted phoenix.
For Galliano, creating the dress proved more than a matter of design.
She dared me to be John Galliano again, he said. I couldnt pick up a pencil. Its been my creative rehab.
The real force we have to thank for the wedding of the year, however, isnt Moss or Galliano, or even
