McQueen's Royal Order?

So rumour has it that the house of McQueen could be producing the dress for THE wedding of the year  over here in the UK. Sarah Burton who has taken over the reigns at the house of Alexander McQueen is in the running to design the wedding dress for Kate Middleton to marry our  very own Prince William! Now I've really not been that interested in the whole build up surrounding the budding nuptials, but this has really taken me by pleasant surprise. The latest collection for Fall 2011 coincidentally showed what could be the modern brides version of a 'the one' the dresses featured were complete with tulle, chiffons, winter whites and romantic edge. 

Whilst I highly doubt that the traditional Royal wedding will hold such a modern twist, nothing is yet confirmed, it would be controversial to say the least. Remember McQueen said he wrote crude messages inside the lining a suit meant for Prince Charles during his early days on Savile Row, hardly a royal fan. But not to take that away from Sarah Burton 'She is, without doubt, one of the most talented and skilled dress-makers of our time' according to Lorraine Candy, editor of Elle Magazine for the Daily Mail, and 'for her, it is also about the woman in the dress'. She certainly delivered breath taking fashion of couture quality and I agree with Lorraine she could certainly produce something Royal wedding worthy.
