Kate Middleton – Will her Wedding Gown be a McQueen??

Will it be a McQueen for the princess? As Sarah Burton — who took over as creative director of Alexander McQueen following the designer’s death last year — sent out a collection in Paris on Tuesday that pointed to “The Ice Queen and her court” as the show’s theme, rumors are running rampant that she’s designing a gown for a real (and certainly warmer) princess-to-be. The U.K.’s Sunday Times splashed “Revealed: McQueen designer to make royal wedding dress” across its front page this weekend, but the British house denies the commission for Kate Middleton. A representative for McQueen says, “I can confirm that Alexander McQueen are not making Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.” But with a fall/winter 2011 collection that culminated in not one, but four frothy white gowns fit for a princess, Burton certainly proved she was up for the task. Suggestions for the designer of the dress that Middleton, 29, will wear at her wedding to Prince William on April 29 have ranged from British designers Bruce Oldfield to Philippa Lepley. The palace has consistently said Middleton wants to keep the designer a secret until the big day, though, and a palace spokesman wouldn’t comment Sunday saying this was simply the latest “speculation.” Still, fashionistas are holding out hope that the McQueen rumor will turn out to be true. Only 50 days till we know for sure! –Reporting by Simon Perry and Monique Jessen
