Super talented head designer for Theory and the prettiest boy in fashion, Olivier Theyskens, almost let slip one mother of a secret at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Karl Lagerfeld’s Magnum ice cream shorts this weekend, and it was none other than the hottest gossip in fashion du jour – the designer of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress!
Quizzed by the cheeky minxes at styleite, Olivier was chatting, as one does, about The Dress when the reporter asked him ‘who do you want to design Kate’s wedding dress’, to which, according to Stylelite, he ‘started to say something and then paused’ before saying ‘I – nobody knows?’ Followed, after an explanation by the too-honest-for-her-own-good interviewer (we’re paraphrasing, but the gist of it was ‘no, nobody knows’) by saying ‘I was thinking everybody knew. I was going to say, like, ‘I can’t wait to see the dress _____ is making!’
So, obviously, the interviewer then asked if it was current top-tip Sophie Cranston, to which Olivier replied ‘Who? I don’t know…’ whilst SMILING. Smiling?! This could mean anything, we realise, but it clearly means SOMEthing.
