Did you adore the navy v-neck wrap dress Kate Middleton wore at yesterday's engagement announcement as much as we did? The sleeves and subdued neutral hue kept things perfectly proper, yet the low neckline was a youthful touch. The dress was designed by Daniella Issa Helayel of the line Issa London, a perennial Middleton favorite and one to watch as a potential candidate to design Kate's wedding gown. Luckily, the designer has had some practice creating bridal looks: two of her bridal designs are currently for sale on net-a-porter.com.

Both seem a bit too informal for a royal wedding, but they're definitely designs Kate would love: classic and elegant, yet still form-fitting and just the right amount of sexy. Which designer do you think Kate will choose for her wedding day look? Check out our slideshow of design sketches created just for Kate by top designers. —Kim Forrest
