Odds Seem to Point to London Couturier Bruce Oldfield as Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Designer

Odds Seem to Point to London Couturier Bruce Oldfield as Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Designer

>> London couture institution Bruce Oldfield, who dressed Princess Diana and has worked with the Duchess of Cornwall, Sienna Miller, and Britain's first lady Samantha Cameron, may be a likely candidate as Kate Middleton's bridal designer.

According to Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, odds for Oldfield started out as four to one, but as of last Friday, they suspended betting because: "We were receiving one-way traffic for Bruce Oldfield and there is no point in taking bets when all the interest is in one person . . . since then his odds have been slashed to one out of three. That would mean there is a 75 percent chance of him being the wedding dress designer."

The spokesperson added: "Sometimes this kind of betting comes from people taking an educated guess, but sometimes it is the result of a leak. We were taking bets of £500 or more so it could be a leak. The wedding is in April, so someone knows what dress she is wearing. I suppose we will just have to wait to see on the 29th."

However, it's worth noting, according to the spokesperson: “We saw this pattern of royal wagers with the venue and the date and they both proved correct. Although we didn’t expect a betting plunge on the dress designer to happen quite so soon, when the stakes changed from fivers and tenners to hundreds of pounds, it appears as though the cat is out of the bag.”

Oldfield said last month that if he "was lucky enough to be asked [to do Middleton's bridal gown], I’d be delighted. I’m already dressing her peers." His spokeswoman declined comment on Wednesday, however. And a spokeswoman at Clarence House replied: “No decision has been made. This is all just speculation.”
