The fashion world (and really, the entire world) has been waiting with bated breath to see which lucky designer will see his or her beautiful wedding gown on future Queen of England Kate Middleton at the upcoming royal nuptials. And the latest name to be thrown in to the hat is Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Burton, who has shown two stunning and well-received runway collections since McQueen’s death last winter, certainly knows her way around a fabulous gown, and we think she’d be a perfect choice – though sadly, she and the McQueen team are denying the rumor.
Avant-garde fashion-lover Daphne Guinness agrees with us, and has some eloquent quotes on the subject, after the jump!
“The dress will most likely have an imperceptible but highly evolved structure. Its elegance will appear effortless, despite the fact that an enormous amount of thought will have gone into it. My guess is that dressed in a Sarah Burton creation, Miss Middleton on her wedding day will look ethereal, a heightened version of herself. It will not be an ill-fitting amateur affair but will show off her strengths without being crude. In short, this will be a defined silhouette and something we have not seen before in quite the same way. I imagine it to be slim fitting but with a hint of futuristic Victoriana.”
It would certainly be exciting if Middleton chooses Burton, especially since her latest McQueen collection’s theme, which the look above belongs to, is “The Ice Queen and her court.” We hope it’s not foreshadowing!
