Bruce Oldfield confirms: "I'm not designing the royal wedding dress"
And another one bites the dust! First Sophie Cranston of Libelula denied she was designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress, now Bruce Oldfield has broken his silence by confirming that he isn't doing the dress either.
"It has been such a subject of rumour and speculation over the past months, but I am not designing it," Oldfield told WWD. "We will all know [on Friday] - and I thought I'd duck out of the 'possibles list' to give everyone 24 hours to place their final bets!"
Aww... what a champ! Of course with Oldfield out of the betting field, attentions are quickly turning to who is left. According to WWD, these include Catherine Walker, Alice Temperley and Daniella Helayel from Issa.
While those who have denied their involvement such as Sarah Burton, of Alexander McQueen, Sophie Cranston, and Phillipa Lepley should still be considered strong contenders.
A few new names to be thrown into the mix include Vera Wang, although doubtful since she isn't British, and Jenny Packham. Considering Packham has an award for British Bridal Dress Designer, she seems like a solid frontrunner.
"Catherine will undoubtedly look spectacular," Oldfield told Vogue UK. "She has a fantastic figure and knows well what suits her. I shall be intrigued to see her choice of design."
With just over 24 hours to go until the moment Kate hits the aisle, we'll know the designer soon enough!
