Sarah Burton to design the dress?

The rumours that Sarah Burton, new head of fashion house Alexander McQueen, is going to be designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress are being banded around all over the place, though she is denying that she’ll be the lucky designer.
With contenders such as Alice Temperley and Bruce Oldfield, the new head of the boundary-pushing McQueen label may seem quite a controversial choice. Though after Burton revealed the Alexander McQueen winter 2011 ready to wear collection in Paris, she could just be the one!
After the details of the big day were revealed on Twitter (check out my post on this) it is clear Kate and William are going for a less traditional event than that of Charles and Diana. Though Kate could wear whatever she chooses, it can be imagined she’ll go for a more demur look than spaghetti straps or a plunging neckline, but maybe she’ll add some classy sass to the traditional frock and perhaps Burton can make this happen.
Burton showcased some STUNNING pieces in Paris Fashion Week, many of which had a very bridal feel…
The romantic frills, high necklines and beautiful embroidery would be fit for any royal-bride-to-be but the pieces were also sexy and edgy.
The high neckline fits the royal bridal bill, but the bare arms and the frantic design of the full skirt give the dresses the edgy and sassy McQueen look.
So Burton’s designs are fabulous, but it would seem they’re going to make us wait a bit longer until the designer is finally announced!
