Fit for a Princess?

The moment the engagement of Kate Middleton and Prince William was announced, a flurry of speculation as to who would design the soon-to-be Princess’s dress started almost immediately. There's no denying Kate’s influence in the fashion industry after the blue Issa London she wore to the engagement press conference sold out, and the see-through dress Kate modelled in her University days was just auctioned off for a whopping £78,000.

Interestingly, Kate seems rather ambivalent in her influence. Not exactly fashion-forward but always shiny-haired and immaculate, Kate’s silence as to who will design her wedding dress has left fashion experts and editors clueless - and the speculation fierce. Many hope that because of her massive consumer influence with the British fashion industry that she’ll choose a home-grown designer. Others expect she’ll go with smaller labels as to help boost their career, as she’s down with Issa London and Libelula in the past.

But who will make the future Princess’s dress? Below are the designers that most speculate she'll choose from, as well as the designers we'd love to see her walk down the aisle in.
