No one can deny how incredibly stunning the Duchess of Cambridge was when she wed Prince William in that dreamy Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen creation. She legit looked like a princess, you guys!
But as it turns out, not everyone is happy about THE wedding dress of all wedding dresses. A British bridal designer named Christine Kendall is suing the luxury label for allegedly copying her designs. According to Fashionista, Kendall showed Kate Middleton her sketches prior to the Royal wedding. These then inspired Burton to create the long-sleeved, low-necked gown we’ve come to know and love.
Here's a video showing Kendall's original sketches:
For the record, Kendall insists that she is not taking legal action against Middleton. “There is no allegation of wrongdoing against the palace,” the designer’s lawyer told the International Business Times.
Meanwhile, Alexander McQueen pretty much wrote off the entire drama as nonsensical, especially when this is not the first time Kendall claimed they stole her wedding dress design. (She did it first in 2012, and nothing resulted from it.)
The brand released a statement, which contains this particular gem: “Sarah Burton never saw any of Ms. Kendall's designs or sketches and did not know of Ms. Kendall before Ms. Kendall got in touch with us. We do not know why Ms. Kendall has raised this again, but there are no ifs, buts or maybes here: this claim is ridiculous.”
