So this is awkward. British fashion minders have reported that embattled designer John Galliano will be designing Kate Moss‘s wedding dress with help from his boyfriend and consultant, Alexis Roche. Which means next month, the supermodel will wed drummer Jamie Hince in a dress made by the guy who got drunk and proclaimed “I love Hitler” on video.
Call us old-fashioned, but if one of our best friends had just said some really dumb things about Jewish people, got fired, went to rehab, and left rehab only to land in three different lawsuits, we’d want him to focus on his recovery and public and private battles — and we’d probably want the person he cared about most by his side, not fretting over whether or not our wedding dress fit correctly. But rumor has it Galliano is sufficiently worried about how the dress will fit that he’s entrusted Roche with all the final details. And Galliano couldn’t be there if he wanted to be — his next court date and Moss’s wedding are happening the same week.
But even if Galliano isn’t involved with the dress’s final stages, which he apparently started creating at the beginning of the year, he still designed it. Ever the loyal friend, Moss doesn’t see anything wrong with that.
“Kate knows that John is deeply sorry for what happened and has always been a loyal friend,” a ‘fashion mole’ told The Daily Mail.
What do you think of Kate’s choice? If Galliano was your best friend, would you have him design your dress, despite his actions?
