Kate and Alexis at the Christian Dior S/S '11 show last year
Hold the front page! Galliano MIGHT be designing Kate Moss’ wedding dress after all. In spite of his pending trial following that-thing-you-all-know-about, John Galliano is the man behind Kate Moss’ wedding attire, according to new rumours circulating today, and he’s going to make it happen with help from his style consultant boyfriend Alexis Roche.
Galliano is due in court ten days before Moss and Jamie Hince are due to tie the knot, which could throw those all-important last minute alterations and fittings into jeopardy. However, a ‘fashion mole’ has reportedly revealed that ‘Alexis has stepped in to ensure everything goes according to plan with the dress’ and that ‘Kate knows that John is deeply sorry for what happened and has always been a loyal friend.’
Mossy announced to friends in February that she had enlisted Galliano to design her wedding dress, and the world said yay. But that was, of course, before Gallianogate and following Galliano’s removal from his role as head designer both at Dior and his own label John Galliano, Jamie told reporters that the rumours he was designing the dress were ‘unfounded entirely’. Boo for that, said the world. Galliano and Moss have been friends and colleagues for almost 25 years – Kate’s debut catwalk appearance was for Galliano in his 1988 show (a gig for which she was paid in clothes) and he also created a white dress for Kate’s 21st Birthday (which was subsequently lent to Sadie Frost when she married Jude Law).
Meanwhile, in other Moss-Dress news, Mossy’s mate Katy England has revealed that Kate’s dress includes a veil. A VEIL?! For a wedding? We can barely believe it.
