It’s fair to assume that the Queen thoroughly approved of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, because Sarah Burton has just scooped an OBE in Her Majesty’s Birthday Honour List. The Creative Director of Alexander McQueen picked up her gong for ‘services to fashion’ and we can see why….

Not only did she spend months working in utter secrecy on that dress but she’s since helped turn Kate Middleton into the UK’s most powerful fashion export, by dressing her for big occasions such as the Diamond Jubilee. Oh, and kicked off a major copy-Kate trend for lace-sleeved wedding dresses.

Burton was one of three fashion designers recognized in the Queen’s list. Mulberry’s Creative Director Emma Hill was given a CBE for making the world obsessed with Alexa bags (ok, we kinda made that up but you know what we mean…) and Lara Bohinc can add an MBE to her name, thanks to her jaw-dropping jewellery designs.

Mulberry's Emma Hill and Lara Bohinc also received Honours

Overall there were nearly 500 women receiving honours – including Oscar-winner Kate Winslet who received a CBE for helping to promote the British film industry abroad and ordinary members of the public such as Alice Pyne who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma disease at the age of 13 and has since raised £31,000 towards research into the cancer.

Anyone can nominate a person they believe is worthy of an honour at www.direct.gov.uk/honours so do you reckon the Duchess of Cambridge was busy clicking away to get her favourite designer on the list? Nah, probably not but we’re glad Sarah Burton made it on anyway. She’s had quite a year-and-a-bit so far. And we can’t wait to see what she wears to meet the Queen….

    With its green hills and sunny vineyards, Gagauzia looks like a haven of peace, but this Russian-speaking region in Moldova finds itself bitterly torn between East and West in the wake of the Ukraine crisis.
