Libelula Denies Royal Wedding Dress Claims

The fashion label designed by Sophie Cranston denied on Wednesday that it was designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.

LIBELULA’S DENIAL: Libelula, the fashion label designed by Sophie Cranston, denied on Wednesday that it was designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. Over the weekend The Huffington Post ran an exclusive story announcing that Cranston was Middleton’s pick. The company said in an e-mailed statement: “Libelula has a company policy of not commenting on any of the work they do for private clients, however due to the unprecedented media attention they would like to make the following statement: We are not designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress. We, like everyone else, can't wait to find out who is!” Media speculation about the designer of the dress has reached a fever pitch in Britain. Earlier this week, the Daily Mail took an original tack and reported that Middleton was actually designing the dress herself – with help from a dressmaker.
