MCQUEEN'S SARAH BURTON TO DESIGN THE ROYAL WEDDING DRESS?

The Sunday Times newspaper is today reporting that head designer at Alexander Mcqueen, Sarah Burton, has been selected to design the royal wedding dress. The fashion rumour mill has it that chief executive of the Mcqueen label, Jonathan Akeroyd, reportedly told a colleague that the company had got the commision. Sarah Burton has been Mcqueen's head designer for 14 years, and this year designed a striking red dress worn by Michelle Obama.

So if the rumours are to be believed, this is quite an exciting choice of designer by Kate Middleton. Unlike the safe and predictable choice of an Issa dress for the engagement photocall, Mcqueen is a high-fashion, high-impact brand credited with designing iconic statement dresses for some of world's top fashionistas.



Having done a spot of googling of wedding dresses designed by the Mcqueen label, I came across the above incredible gown worn by fashion writer Plum Sykes. And I have to say, I can imagine Kate looking truly divine in a creation such as this. Looks like this could be a fashion marriage made in heaven...
