>> The model-musician relationship has a rich, storied history — some fleeting (Adriana Lima and Lenny Kravitz circa 2002; Jessica Stam and Anthony Kiedis circa 2006), and some holding strong for longer than a quick moment (Patti Hansen and Keith Richards, since 1983; Iman and David Bowie, since 1992). In honor of Kate Moss making hers official tomorrow, a look back at some of our favorites — and here's to hoping she never has to throw a divorce party.

>> Aliona Doletskaya, who resigned from editing Vogue Russia last year (and was once rumored to be in the running for Anna Wintour's position), has a new gig. She has teamed with Vladislav Doronin (Naomi Campbell's billionaire boyfriend) and Bernard Runge, CEO of Phillips de Pury & Company, to launch Russian and German editions of Interview magazine.
Doletskaya will edit both of the magazines (Interview Russia hits newsstands at the end of the year, followed by Interview Germany in early 2012), and Jo-Ann Furniss, who resigned as editor of Arena Homme Plus earlier this year, will act as international fashion director.
In a press release, Doletskaya said she was excited to work on magazines for two different countries: “Moscow and Berlin are cultural capitals of the modern world. The progressive, open-minded communities in those cities are booming. They have the drive and desire to grow, to discover, to move forward. Interview has always been a creative platform for talented individuals unafraid to break taboos and freely express their artistic vision. Now is the time to do so on this side of the ocean.”
>> There's been a lot of back and forth about the designer of Kate Moss's wedding dress, but John Galliano has dominated the rumors. Now, a source close to Moss confirmed that she will wear a Galliano dress when marrying Jamie Hince tomorrow. Her maid of honour Trish Simonon (wife of Clash bassist Paul Simonon), meanwhile, will wear Erdem. [Vogue UK]
>> The tour de dress-up continues for Freja Beha Erichsen in a couple of newly-released Chanel Fall 2011 ads. The first leaked set of images showed Beha Erichsen in a Chanel eyemask or a lace veil and panties, but now the campaign goes more playful — Freja as cat, with Chanel's signature camellias as her ears — definitely the mark of campaign stylist Carine Roitfeld on the brand.
