It might just be the most important dress Kate Middleton will ever wear, and though we won't get a glimpse of it until April 29, it looks like the future Queen of England may be a step closer to deciding just who will design her wedding gown.
The rumored couturier is Bruce Oldfield, a London designer Kate's mom and sister reportedly made a recent visit to.
Oldfield is no stranger to the world of royals: In addition to designing for loads of celebs, he also crafted the wedding gown for Queen Rania of Jordan and was a favorite of Princess Diana.
While not confirming an appointment, Oldfield tells the Today show that if he were Kate's dress designer, he envisions her in a structured lace gown with sleeves that's both sensual and regal.
Not sure what those terms mean together but we can speculate. Sensual: plunging neckline? Exposed shoulders? Regal: Tall, vertical collar along the neckline? Little-bitty crowns embroidered onto the train?
Either way, a royal wedding gown has got to be stunning, he says. "It has to have glamour, it has to have gravitas." And the hoped-for reaction? "A sharp intake of breath," he says, with onlookers thinking, "'My God, she looks fabulous.'"
And she might even look fabulous times two. Oldfield dropped a hint that there may be two gowns: one for the wedding and another for the reception afterward. Which brings on even more guessing about what the second dress might look like.
Whatever Kate ends up wearing, everyone agrees that she will look spectacular. That's all any bride hopes for, royal or not.
