Kate Middleton Wears McQueen, What Does This Mean For Christian Dior?

Apr 29, 2011 By Amy

By now you’ve probably heard that Sarah Burton designed Kate Middleton‘s dress for her fairytale royal wedding. Now lets go beyond the gorgeous delicate lace and long train to ask ourselves…what does this mean for Christian Dior?

The Alexander McQueen creative director has been a frontrunner in the Dior designer replacement show for awhile now, so her dress design could entice the fashion house to bring her aboard. With Middleton loving (and trusting) Burton to create a gown for her once in a lifetime affair, it’s safe to say that we can expect to see more Middleton in Burton for McQueen. Now if Burton jumps ship from McQueen to Dior, I’m sure Middleton will continue to show her support for Burton. Also it’s been said that, “Bernard Arnault (Dior chairman & LVMH CEO)  loves the royals and is allegedly intrigued by the idea of re-launching Christian Dior around the couple.”

Only time will tell and until then the world will continue to gaze at the lavish gown Burton created for Middleton.

Burton also designed her sister Philippa Middleton’s dress as well.
