FIRST LOOK: Allen B. Schwartz is getting a head start on the competition. Philanthropist, jewelry designer and author Nancy Davis asked Schwartz to design a dress, inspired by Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, to be auctioned off for charity Friday night. The event is The 18th Annual Race to Erase MS, which takes place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Schwartz explained that during the finale of the celebrity fashion show, “There’ll be a look-alike of Prince William in uniform and one of Kate in the wedding dress coming down the runway.” It’ll be a long day for Schwartz, who plans to wake up at 3:30 a.m. to start sketching with his design team, in order to produce the wedding gown by that evening. “This wedding is very healthy for the business. You’re not just talking about Lindsay Lohan. You’re talking about royalty,” said Schwartz.
