I think I have been ignoring Kate Moss a little while focusing on The Royal Wedding – found this awesome article to keep you up to date on Kate Moss’s big day!
What’s going on with Kate Moss‘s wedding dress?
Never having fantasised about wedding dresses, FS generally fails to get interested in all things meringuey. However, the whole Kate Moss/Jamie Hince wedding thing has got us excited. First you need to be fully up to date on the dress saga …
