Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton Reportedly Spotted Heading Into Kate Middleton's Pre-Wedding Hotel

Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton Reportedly Spotted Heading Into Kate Middleton's Pre-Wedding Hotel

>> Although there have been numerous denials from both Sarah Burton and the Alexander McQueen camp, speculation that Burton may be Kate Middleton's wedding dress designer after all has reached a fever pitch.

A woman who arrived at the Goring Hotel (above, left) — where Middleton and her family are staying — three hours before Kate yesterday is suspected to be Burton (above, right). The woman, who hid her face and blonde hair with an oversized fur trapper hat, "ducked right down and ran in as quick as you like," according to an onlooker. "The whole thing was in under half a second. It was very odd."

But despite the obscured face, the Telegraph UK points out: "The distinctive silver link belt slotted through the waistband of [the woman's] jeans was identical to the one favoured by Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen, as were the ballet pumps. Burton . . . is not often photographed. But when she is, the metal belt, buckled, and then individually slotted backwards, and the flat pumps, are present."
