Chances are that we won't know for sure who is responsible for the wedding dress of the year until Kate Middleton makes her way down the aisle, but, as we're sure you already know, Bruce Oldfield is regarded as one of the frontrunners. Whether he has earned the responsibility or not, we now have a good insight into what he thinks the future princess should wear on her big day.
Oldfield sat down with ABC news in the US to offer up his opinions. He starts by describing the job as a nightmare, so maybe he's not doing it after all, but he does reveal that he's already been lined up by a selection of people to dress them for the wedding, although he's naming no names. And he's keeping the mother of the bride on side, comparing her to Carla Bruni.
As for what Kate will go for, he's sure that she will wear a veil and he says, 'I'm sure the dress is going to be modest in terms of coverage, it has to be. It will have sleeves, it has to have sleeves, you can't walk down Westminster Abbey in a strapless dress, it just won't happen. And it has to suit the grandeur of that aisle, it's enormous.'
He adds, 'I think whatever she wears she's going to look great because she's gorgeous, you know, she's slim, she's elegant, she's aware of herself. She's not a shy, shrinking violet, but she is just a normal, ordinary girl who happens to have bagged the big one.'
