So yesterday, one day before the Fall 2011 presentation of the Alexander McQueen collection, international rumor mills were in high gear confirming that Katherine Middleton’s wedding dress would be designed by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. Will it turn out to be the truth or just a brilliant public relations move that (deservedly) steered all eyes to this collection today? Only time will tell.
And just as if to make sure the flames of speculation and publicity get fanned as high as possible, Ms. Burton showed some exquisite white dresses (wedding gowns?) to prove that she’s up to the royal task.
The dress shown above was my runaway favorite. I especially like the neckline which looks so sculptural but is also, in fact, the perfect practical way to secure a heavily beaded dress to the body.
