Kate To Naomi: "Trying To Upstage Me, Bitch?"S

The Vogue cover story about Kate Moss's wedding is here, and it is a doozy. The supermodel decided to tie the knot after watching Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. Moss explains:

I am so romantic about Gypsies. 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!

Vogue continues its pattern of not saying peep about John Galliano and the racist outbursts that cost him his job at Christian Dior (Galliano has long been a protégé of Anna Wintour). In this story, the designer is referred to as Moss's "beleaguered friend," which is as close as Vogue will get to writing "I Love Hitler!-saying jobless designer," apparently. Galliano whispered in Moss's ear just before she walked down the aisle, like he would before she headed out onto the catwalk in a runway show. "I told her, ‘You have a secret — you are the last of the English roses — and when he lifts your veil he's going to see your wanton past!'" he says. Naomi Campbell, who Vogue notes wore yellow Givenchy, was the last guest to arrive. Moss said to her, "Trying to upstage me, bitch?" and laughed. We can no longer resist. Kate Moss is boss. [Vogue]

Kate To Naomi: "Trying To Upstage Me, Bitch?""Sometime around 1992, designer Christian Louboutin had a bright idea," writes Judge Victor Marrero in a preliminary ruling on the Louboutin/Yves Saint Laurent copyright case. Marrero denied Louboutin's request for a permanent injunction against sales of the all-red shoes from YSL's 2011 cruise collection, meaning that for a few months this year, two luxury brands will sell red-soled shoes for hundreds and hundreds of dollars in boutiques and better department stores. The judge displays an admirable grasp of fashion in his ruling, writing that "in the fashion industry color serves ornamental and aesthetic functions vital to robust competition." Because of this, however, Marrero finds that Louboutin "is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection." This doesn't bode well for Louboutin. Louboutin may end up regretting suing YSL: if the company's existing trademark protection is overturned, there'll be Louboutin knockoffs at Payless in no time. [WWD]

Kate To Naomi: "Trying To Upstage Me, Bitch?"These hand-painted flip-flops by artist Daniel Palmer are on sale for $18,000. Back in 2004, the Times wrote a trend piece about the lengths our plutocrats were going to in order to display their wealth to us poors, and it included a pair of $17,000 flip-flops. So really, there's been surprisingly little inflation in the price of stupidly expensive flip-flops in the past seven years. [Mogulite]

  • People are trying to figure out which disaffected (and hilarious) Condé Nasty is behind the @CondeElevator Twitter account. (Sample Tweet: "Linen Blazer: There's nothing going on this weekend. Corduroy Blazer: I'm actually doing a reading on Saturday. LB: Cool. Good for you, man.") Condé Nast says it is "looking into" who it could be. (Hope nobody was dumb enough to register for "Condeelevator@gmail.com" on a company computer.) Meanwhile, the account has more than 56,000 followers, which is more than some Condé Nast magazines have *cough*Allure*cough* [NYPost]

  • In other strange news from the annals of advertising: the Gap bought a "Sponsored Post" on the Awl. The corporation chose to write about how, like, incredibly hip and cool its designers are. Gapsters are "rebellious types who are well dressed and working away in a creative environment. They're the seemingly disaffected youth type that most people ascribe the term 'hipster' to, sometimes, but not always, as a pejorative. If they lived in New York, people who lived in Manhattan would probably assume they lived in Brooklyn." [The Awl]
