Ever since Kate Middleton's mother and sister were spotted visiting designer Bruce Oldfield's London boutique, he has emerged as the front-runner to design the royal wedding gown. Oldfield was a preferred designer of Princess Diana, and has given several recent interviews where he's played coy on the subject of Kate's gown. We looked through Oldfield's recent collections, and found several gowns that we think would suit Kate—all of them would require the addition of long sleeves for the formal church ceremony. At top left is "Gene," a romantic flowy gown with a lace bodice and regal high collar; it features a v-neckline, which is Kate's preferred style. The gown at top right, called Style 34116, is one of Bruce's ready-to-wear styles, but is right up Kate's alley: fuss-free, low neckline, sleek, but still feminine. At bottom left is "Lorna," a super-feminine all-lace style that's quite form-fitting. And the gown at bottom right, called "Lewis Lisa" has a medieval feel that would be a nod back to Kate's predecessors, and would look simply smashing with a tiara. Plus, it features a removable jacket that Kate could doff for her reception. Which of these dresses would you choose for Kate?
