In London today, the stars have come out to celebrate the last day of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend with a carnival parade through the streets of London to Buckingham Palace. But even among the illustrious list of celebs who attended the show in full regalia, one fashion icon stood out above the rest: Kate Moss.
Attending the event with her friend Charlotte Tilbury, who hosted a party at Claridge’s before the concert began, Moss wore a black bias-cut silk dress and a pair of red Vivienne Westwood stilettos, before adding layers of her characteristic bohemian style. necklaces But the star piece was the Union Jack blazer that Moss wore to top it off, and if the piece looked familiar, that might be because it’s not Moss’s first time wearing it.
Indeed, the jacket is a rare piece of fashion history, originally worn by Moss herself on the Paris catwalk for John Galliano’s spring 1993 collection, which paid homage to British fashion history and the naval prowess with its bustiers, bustles, military jackets and daring hairstyles reminiscent of tricorn hats. Galliano at the time was famous for rewarding his models with clothes from his own collections, which might explain how the piece (or a similar version) found its way into a Moss wardrobe treasure trove.
