There are still so many questions! The foremost being, how in the world was the dress kept a secret?!
There have been rumors of secret meetings behind locked doors, and that the dress was created in pieces.
The latest scoop, reported by Us Weekly, says that the lace-makers were told that they were working on a dress for a British costume drama. Seamstresses at Alexander McQueen also thought that the gown was for a film (no wonder why no one blabbed). All senior staffers at McQueen were instructed to lie if asked whether Burton was the 'chosen one.' The fittings were held in Buckingham Palace with a small team who had signed secrecy agreements.
