The way Sarah Burton has talked about the wedding dress she designed for Kate Middleton, the new Duchess of Cambridge, it sounds like she’s not really supposed to say anything. Customers at Saks, where she appeared yesterday to do a meet and greet in the Alexander McQueen shop, were told not to talk to her about it, but they did anyway. These being not reporters but customers — and with Burton probably dying to talk about it since she couldn’t for so long — she had to answer them. From WWD:

Norah Lawlor, one of the first to have a word with Burton, said, “She said the princess was one of the most lovely women she has ever met and she was really low maintenance. She said the palace called her and the collaboration between her and Kate was 50-50.”
