It wouldn't be a royal wedding without the world's top designers offering their takes on just what the bride should wear. Lucky for Kate Middleton, she has the cream of the crop sketching their suggestions on just what they think she should don for the big day. Imagine having the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Frida Giannini and Alberta Ferretti designing a gown for you to wear to walk down the aisle. Ahh... it's the stuff of fairy tales, isn't it? Speaking of fairy tales, some of the gowns drawn by these designers and more can be viewed here.

For his design (above, left) Lagerfeld suggests a Chanel take on "the Victorian wedding dress, with a twist - high boots and open in the front." While Gucci's Giannini says she "admires the balance Kate Middleton strikes between elegant and contemporary with her unmistakable style. For her, I had in mind clean lines, soft shapes and classic touches such as the boat neckline and distinctive train."
