Who Will Design Catherine Middleton’s Wedding Dress?

That is the big question these days.  Designers from around the world have submitted their sketches to the future Queen of England and they have also submitted their work to WWD.

Here are some ideas from the world’s most famous fashion designers.

Karl Lagerfeld believes she should look like a Victorian princess… high boots and all.  He must be on crack or something because this gown is awful!

Monique Lhuillier believes the gown should be “…a modern mix of the traditional and contemporary.”

For designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli for the House of Valentino, they believe Catherine should wear, “…a ‘blossoming’ dress because we imagined her as a new Botticellian Venus.”

For Tom Mora he believes, “…hat there will be so many comparisons to the late Princess Diana that her dress should almost be the opposite of what Diana’s was — modern, simple and very elegant.”

Alberta Ferretti notes, “In Kate I see the natural, radiant and self-confident attitude of today’s girls. For this, I can’t help but think of an embroidered, fluid-silhouette dress in precious fabrics that will help her make an everlasting impression.”

For Frida Giannini for the House of Gucci she notes that, “…the balance Kate Middleton strikes between elegant and contemporary with her unmistakable style. For her, I had in mind clean lines, soft shapes and classic touches such as the boat neckline and distinctive train.”

 

Yigal Azrouël wants Catherine too look, “…sophisticated, but also a modern-day wedding gown for a young princess. Its elongated silhouette combined with the lace and draping of the skirt is glamorous and elegant, while the neckline and bodice remain modern.
Kimberly Ovitz really didn’t care about her design nor Catherine.  She just scribbled something on a piece of paper and said, “Modern.”  Put a lot of thought into that, eh Kim?


I think Catherine would look amazing in this gown!!  Hello Kitty Wedding dress FTW!!!

In all seriousness, Catherine Middleton will most likely hire a British designer, and many believe the designer will be Bruce Oldfield from London.
