Daphne Guinness writes like she dresses: in an ornate, complicated, and very well-though-out fashion. The article she wrote for today’s Telegraph about the possibility of Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton creating Kate Middleton’s wedding dress begins: “A marriage is a solemn affair. The tempest of emotions and the myriad of arrangements are giddying, and when one is faced with these, clothing seems to be the last of one’s priorities.” Daphne, a fashion expert and huge McQueen champion and friend of the late designer, continues:
She will not disappoint Miss Middleton, nor the world watching. In fact, I would wager that it will be one of the most interesting and beautiful dresses ever made. Burton’s creations, after all, are the apogee of fantasy and beauty.
