One new name that has been added to the pool of brought to the royal wedding’s table? Jasper Conran⎯a British designer worn by Princess Margaret‘s daughter, Lady Sarah Chatto during her own nuptials. Interestingly enough, Conran’s wedding gown collection has mysteriously since been removed from his website since the buzz began.

Another source of conflict in the dress debate? It was recently revealed that Palace officials turned to EIC of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, looking for help in regards to who should be behind what Kate walks down the aisle in. While Alexandra was said to have been pushing for a McQueen concoction designed by his successor, Sarah Burton, any designs from McQueen were left out of the magazine’s recent blockbuster issue dedicated to the royal wedding.
