Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton did the unthinkable — she lied right to Anna Wintour's face.
Vogue's editor-at-large Hamish Bowles says it all went down last year when everyone was speculating over who would be designing Kate Middleton's wedding gown:
"Anna looked Sarah in the eye – an experience that would jelly the marrow of bigger people – and asked, 'Are you designing Kate Middleton’s dress?' and Sarah said, 'I am not designing the dress.' So Anna was telling everyone, 'Sarah told me she’s not doing the dress, so she’s not doing the dress.' Now Anna admits Sarah did an amazing job."
What a brave soul!
Hamish also revealed the white dresses from the McQueen A/W 2011 collection was a cover up for the super covert design operation going on inside Buckingham Palace.
