The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince proposed to Kate Moss while they were on vacation in Thailand, but it wasn't until the newlyweds caught an episode of "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings," that the model was ready to tie the knot.
“I am so romantic about Gypsies,” the model tells Vogue of how the Brit documentary gave her inspiration. “They’re not allowed to do anything until they get married. So they all get married really young, at sixteen. You can’t believe the dresses. They’re like blinging butterflies times ten; they can’t move down the aisle! It’s so genius. I was just watching Jamie, so cute, and I was like, these girls, they just spend their whole life waiting for that day—let’s do it!”
And do it they did - Hince, 42, and Moss, 37, were married in early July close to her home in Cotswold, England. But, as Moss tells Vogue, there were nerves the entire way to the aisle.
“Let’s put it this way,” Moss says. “If I didn’t have my friends. . . . I don’t know how people do it. I’ve had big birthday parties, and I’ve thrown parties for other people, but this is a completely different thing. It’s the Met Ball! Because you have to look at every piece of cutlery; the details are intense. And then you wake up thinking about the ballet shoes for the girls; is the satin ribbon right? I’ve gone mental."
Even with the stress, it sounds like Moss and Hince pulled off an excellent fete with some of fashion's elite attending.
“I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and 1920s, when everything is soft‐focus,” Moss explains of the ceremony. “The Great Gatsby. The code name was GG for a while. That light and that kind of fun decadence. It’s rock‐’n’‐roll Great Gatsby!”
And of course, there's the dress. Amidst the pre-wedding jitters, Moss says that was the thing that helped keep her grounded. "When I put the dress on, I’m really happy,” she says. “I forget about everything.”
