She rocked Hollywood in a lavender McQueen gown and of course famously married in a dress by the British design house. So when will we see the Duchess of Cambridge in a look by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen again?
Judging by Tuesday’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week, it could be a while. The brand’s spring/summer 2012 collection was gorgeous — the catwalk was studded with organza gowns and lace dresses that were downright dreamy. According to Style.com (where you can see every look), Burton was inspired by “the three Gs: Grès for the pleating and draping, Gaudí for the architecture and Gaia for the sense of all-encompassing oceanic life that infused the clothes.” (Funnily enough, Chanel’s Tuesday show carried an aquatic theme, too.)
But Kate’s style sense often leans toward the functional — she tends to choose classic cuts and colors over elaborate couture creations. However, given her love of McQueen, it’s hard not to imagine the newlywed donning one of Burton’s latest looks for her next big charity event. So tell us: Which McQueen should Kate wear next?
