Representatives for late designer Alexander McQueen's fashion house have shot down reports they're creating princess-to-be Kate Middleton's wedding gown.
The fashion world is abuzz with rumours regarding the future royal's dress, but her spokespeople are refusing to reveal the identity of the chosen designer - because they want it to remain a secret up to the big day next month.
But McQueen's stylists have ruled themselves out of the race, denying reports suggesting they've landed the honour.
McQueen's creative director Sarah Burton was said to be the woman behind the gown, but the company's spokeswoman Myriam Coudoux says, "This is not true." Burton has also denied the Sunday Times story.
Hongyi Huang, the head of PR for McQ, the house's contemporary clothing line, also denied the report.
Meanwhile, a royal family spokesman has added to the mystery over the chosen designer, stating, "We're not commenting on the specific designer for the dress, because Catherine Middleton wishes to keep the designer a secret until the wedding day."
She'll wed Prince William at Westminster Abbey in London on April 29.
