Sarah Burton didn't do much on Tuesday to disuade the fashion community from thinking that she's designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress.
Sure, when asked over the weekend, the McQueen designer explicitly told Vogue UK, "I am not doing it," but after sending a series of full, white frocks strutting at her runway show in Paris, it seems everyone is rooting for her. After seeing the collection Hilary Alexander Tweeted, "Alexander McQueen.. Fit for.a Queen," Joe Zee: "Kate Middleton, I love you but if you don't have Sarah Burton design your wedding dress, you're making a big mistake. HUGE," Anne Slowey: "LIFT OFF AT McQUEEN!!!! Kate Middleton: HELLOOOOO!!!!" and Meenal Mistry: "Honestly, I don't really understand why Sarah Burton at #McQueen making Kate Middleton's dress isn't a foregone conclusion."
Alack and alas, it's all just speculation. But royal wedding rumors aside, there's not much that can stop us from fawning over Burton's exquisite gowns, outrageous footwear and barrette-bedecked models.
Take a look and tell us what you think.
