Many a female heart was broken the day it was announced that Prince William had finally proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton. Now that the majority of us have come to terms with the fact that we are indeed not in the running to be British royalty, we can focus our attention on what Ms. Middleton will be wearing when she weds her Prince. WWD asked designers ranging from Vera Wang and Karl Lagerfeld to Jason Wu and Frida Gianinni to sketch their dream dresses for the new Princess. Who do you think should outfit Kate on her wedding day?

    These are great! I don´t envy Ms. Middleton really, because I´m not into blondes, but I would wear one of these dresses in a heartbeat! :) I love the Missoni, Rachel Roy and Nina Ricci the best.
