Kiss Me Kate

While this year's other wedding starring a Kate may have been filled with unforgettable pomp and majesty, this Kate's Great Gatsby-meets-gypsy wedding was a bucolic fantasy. Tepees were built for her 16 bridesmaids and flower girls. The ceremony was conducted in an old stone church flanked by wild flowers. But this was Kate Moss' wedding afterall, so there was plenty of glitz and glamour among the pastoral ambiance. An entire tent was filled with party attire handpicked by Kate for her friends. The staff from the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz in Paris were on hand to bartend. The dance floor was packed until 6 am. A most perfect way to send off the new Mrs. Jamie Hince.

the sea stood up and hugged you
as though you were responsbile
for keeping it blue."

What's In Your Closet?

I know I'm way behind the times and that these photos have been all over the blog world as of late, but I still thought I'd post these images from The Coveteur. If you're not familiar with the blog, every week its editors pick a tastemaker's closet and artfully arrange its contents. Last week's featured Deborah Lloyd (Creative Director of Kate Spade.) As you would expect with an anyone associated with Kate Spade, there's plenty of pink, sparkle, and stripes. But what I love is the juxtaposition: owls and leopard flats, ikat pillows and stuffed birds... Makes me wonder what the girls at The Coveteur would do with my closet!
