Kate Moss's Amazing Musical Wedding To Feature Shit Tons Of Vodka


Kate Moss and Jamie Hince‘s wedding, in case you’ve forgotten, is just around the corner. The three-day extravaganza starts Friday, and will center around Moss’s Cotswolds country home. According to rumor, The Gossip, Snoop Dogg, Shirley Bassey, and the Rolling Stones will perform — and the menu is musically themed, too, says one guest: Kate “is going to be serving Keith Richards‘ shepherd’s pie, Steve Tyler‘s thai curry and Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie‘s sausage and mash.” The couple has allegedly enlisted “two top chefs” to serve hungry guests sausage rolls — which are a delicious, fattening British analogue to pigs-in-blankets — and breadsticks. For decorations, there will be custom-made bunting with a motif of “skulls, flowers, headlines of her escapades, flowers and photos.” Sounds…cheerful. [Telegraph]
Cocaine Kate’s carnival of excess as she marries her Z-list rocker (and at £500,000, here’s hoping it lasts). Guests have to bring water pistols. There’s vodka by the truckload and alcohol-free cocktails (for those in rehab). Brace yourself for three days of vulgar indulgence.” Oh, “Daily Mail Reporter,” you never fail to impress us with your extra-mean adjective selection. Um, does it make us bad people if we want a vodka lorry, too? Not to mention, there will be a dress-up room where guests can play in Kate’s closet. [Daily Mail]
In case you can’t make it but would like to send your regards to one of the world’s wealthiest supermodels and her rock star beau, Moss and Hince have registered for a case of champagne, a vintage cocktail shaker and cups, and 14 ashtrays. Or you could just spring for a silver-plated coke spoon. [Sun]

That’s an awful lot of money to be paid for saying “Bad hat! No!” every five minutes. [Daily Mail]

  • We feel sort of the same way about backstage photographers who snap pictures of male models as they’re changing clothes at the shows as we do about backstage photographers who take pictures of female models as they’re changing clothes at the shows: that it’s creepy and invasive and really not cool. (God, we are such bonerkillers today. Sorry.) [WOW]
