Moss vs. Middleton

Both ladies of leisure, born from parents who were high fliers - one's father being a travel agent, the other a flight attendant for British Airways - these two women even bear the same initials. One being once the anti-supermodel and the other the nation's new sweetheart in waiting - it is  of course the nuptials of Kate Moss and Middleton.

Whilst Moss has been the face of  over 50 magazine covers ( recently baring all for May 2011 Brazilian Vogue), she is also known for her high profile relationships and extreme party lifestyle. Yet don't be fooled by the regal Royal-to-be as Kate Middleton is planning on having the Palace converted into a club on the eve of the wedding. Impressive.

One is a self professed designer and  have fashionista friends such as Matthew Williamson, Stella McCartney and the late great Alexander McQueen yet the other has not been seen as a designer's dream. Dame Vivienne Westwood recently commented, " I would have loved to have dressed Kate Middleton but I have to wait until she kind of catches up a bit somewhere with style." Ouch.

So what's your preference for a post- nuptial party? Cocaine Kate or Waity Katy?

Kate Moss

Hen Do? For a lady who celebrated her 30th with an 18 hour continual celebration - it is rumoured that Kate has ordered a 'Big Fat Gypsy Wedding' style frock. Katie Price eat your heart out.  

The top table? The Primrose Hill set of Sadie Frost, Davinia Taylor and Pearl Lowe.

Venue? Set to be a 'mini Glasto' - members of Led Zeppelin, The Clash, Rolling Stones and Beth Ditto are rumoured to be attending and performing. Kate, whose future hubby is Jamie Hince of  The Kills, is clearly a rock and roll lady-in-waiting.

Chief Bridesmaid? Adorable 8 year old Lila Grace. Moss' daughter to Dazed and Confused Curator Jefferson Hack.

The Dress? Before Galliano opened his gob, he was set to be the designer of the dress. Yet it may be that the duty is given to Head of Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton to create the couture.  

Kate Middleton

Hen Do? If Prince Harry had been in charge it may have been more of a giggle we're sure. It was a humble affair, with a reported quiet night in with close friends and matron on honour, sister Pippa.

The top table? Guests include Victoria and David Beckham, Elton John and Tara Palmer Tomkinson.

Venue? Westminster Abbey, a quick tour and kiss on the balcony, then back for a Palace party - Will's Granny is off to Sandringham to leave them to to it. Bless.

Chief Bridesmaid? Kate's sister Pippa.

The Dress? Vogue daily updates, designer's denials - this is the Nation's best kept secret since Imogen Thomas' affair. Haute-fly is placing it's bets on hotly tipped designer Issa.
