Sophie Cranston of the Libélula label may or may not be the chosen royal wedding dressmaker. Yvonne Yorke of The Huffington Post follows up on her story from last week:

"So far, every designer that has been tipped as the royal wedding dressmaker has denied his or her involvement. As expected, Cranston also issued a denial to the rumors that she has been chosen -- partly due to the unprecedented media attention she has now received, which must be quite overwhelming for a small designer. So no surprises there. What is a bit surprising is that for the first few days after the news came out, Cranston had maintained a 'no comment' stance when asked, rather than denying it outright, which is what Sarah Burton and other rumored designers had done."


Although Yorke does not divulge the details of the design, she does give a few hints about the embroidered dress, saying it will be "more classic and feminine than avant-garde."

As for news that Kate Middleton designed the dress herself, Yorke writes that those reports are greatly exaggerated, but the bride-to-be did bring "her own ideas, and definitely had input in collaborating with the designer on how her wedding dress will look."
