Two fabulous weddings took place this weekend and was of course covered extensively by the media.

The Rock´n roll wedding of supermodel Kate Moss and Jamie Hince of The Kills in the Cotswolds in England friday.
Kate Moss looked very pretty wearing a weddinggown of her long time friend, John Galliano. Respect!
The sheer elegant beaded gown looked very contemporary, even though  inspired by the 1920-30 flapper-style, it suited her perfectly.

The second wedding was The Royal wedding of long time bachelor Prince  Albert of Monaco, who finally was getting married to his fiancée of five years, South-African swimmer, Charlene Wittstock.
Even though the rumours about a third illegitimate child on his side almost  made the bride cancel the wedding last week. Appearently she tried to es- cape and made it to the airport, but was stopped and held back. Of course officials denies everything. But just think about all the money that are in- volved, the prestige, the sponsors etc. Even if it´s not true, it´s a good story. . .

For the civil wedding friday Charlene Wittstock wore a light blue Chanel-ensemple by Karl Lagerfeld, who is a long time friend of the Grimaldi-family.

In my opinion not to compare with the stylish weddingensempl Grace Kelly wore at her and Prince  Ranier´s civil wedding in 1956 though. A suit designed by Helen Rose, who also did her famous weddinggown. See my previous post on Grace Kelly here.

But Charlene Wittstick really looked stunning in the Wedding-gown from Armani Privée at the Ceremoni yesterday.
It was a very contemporary, simple, but heavily beaded column gown with draped shoulders and a long, trailing fishtail skirt and an extensive train attached.

The designers strategic nursing of their future clients payed off once again. I´m sure the gowns were gifts, because the publicity Chanel and Armani gets, makes it all worth while. For more facts on the wedding, check here.
