They may disagree on the season's must-have accessory, or which color is "in," but British designers are united on at least one thing: Their love for

London fashion week was a whirlwind of shows, and we had a great time covering them. Besides being an incubator for original fashion, London designers are also not afraid to work a LOOK on their models, making for the best beauty-ogling of all the fashion weeks. From Vivienne Westwood (at left), who is not afraid of, well, anything, to more subtle yet never boring looks, we loved the beauty in London. This is all about the drama. You need a certain amount of self-confidence to pull many of these off, but we encourage you to try! Click through for our 10 favorite looks from London.
There has been so much speculation about the identity of the lucky designer(s) who has been commissioned to design Kate Middleton's wedding dress that
Now that Prince Wills has popped the question to his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton (and we've seen the ring), the question on everyone's mind is: what will she wear? We came up with some fantastical suggestions for Kate--from Erdem to Marchesa to J. Crew--but Middleton will more than likely go with a British bridal designer who reflects her personal style which is clean, simple and safe. Which means, sadly, McQueen and Westwood are probably out of the running. Since news broke yesterday of the royal engagement, a few designer names have been singled out by the British press (including British Vogue and Hilary Alexander at the Telegraph) as front runners: Amanda Wakeley, Daniella "Issa" Helayel and Bruce Oldfield. Other names thrown into the mix are Stewart Parvin, who has a royal warrant, Jenny Packham, and Phillipa Lepley, whom Alexander describes as "Sloaney" (American translation: WASPy, preppy, girly, Upper East Side-y). Hilariously, online betting site Paddy Power has even set up "Royal Wedding Dress Designer Betting," creating odds on which designer has the best shot of getting the coveted job. According to the site, Amanda Wakeley and Daniella Halayel are the favorites to design Kate's wedding dress at 9/2. They've also placed Elizabeth Emanuel, who designed Princess Diana's dress with her former husband David, at 5/1 odds, and Vivienne Westwood at 6/1 odds so maybe there is hope for Dame Westwood. A little bit more about the front runners and their designs.
