Here's the dress that Kate Middleton is wearing to tonight's reception at Buckingham Palace, also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. I'm partial to the more formal lace number she wore this morning but this one's pretty stunning too. But did she steal that sweater from Cher in Clueless? Let's hope she takes it off and finally shows some shoulder.
Rumor: Kate Middleton to Wed in Alexander McQueen
London's Sunday Times is reporting that Kate Middleton will wed in Alexander McQueen on April 29. Middleton will also have some input regarding the design of the dress. Sources tell the Telegraph "the design of the dress [will] be a combination of Miss Middleton's own ideas and Mrs Burton's quirky interpretation of high fashion." The paper also reports that Sarah Burton was "chosen for the discretion afforded by her relatively low profile, as well as for her alternative take on elegance." The Sunday Times, the first outlet to report that McQueen had landed the coveted job of designing Middlton's wedding dress, is sticking to their story despite the fact that McQueen's camp has denied the report to CNN. As for Prince William's office, they told CNN "We're saying nothing." Though McQueen has to deny the report, even if it's true.
