She rocked Hollywood in a lavender McQueen gown and of course famously married in a dress by the British design house. So when will we see the Duchess of Cambridge in a look by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen again?

Judging by Tuesday’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week, it could be a while. The brand’s spring/summer 2012 collection was gorgeous — the catwalk was studded with organza gowns and lace dresses that were downright dreamy. According to Style.com (where you can see every look), Burton was inspired by “the three Gs: Grès for the pleating and draping, Gaudí for the architecture and Gaia for the sense of all-encompassing oceanic life that infused the clothes.” (Funnily enough, Chanel’s Tuesday show carried an aquatic theme, too.)

But Kate’s style sense often leans toward the functional — she tends to choose classic cuts and colors over elaborate couture creations. However, given her love of McQueen, it’s hard not to imagine the newlywed donning one of Burton’s latest looks for her next big charity event. So tell us: Which McQueen should Kate wear next?

Almost wearable without the ridic headpiece.

Yeah, I’m sure that coral one would go over well with the palace!

Really? I don’t see her in any of them – maybe the first one if any, but even that’s a stretch.

Im not saying this to be mean, but Kate doesnt have the balls for any of these. Kate wears Sarah Burton, not Alexander McQueen. They are two totally different brands. McQueen is all about pushing the limits of fashion and being amazing, mean while, Sarah knows that Kate is good publicity, so she makes her anything her heart desires. Even when Kate wears an ocassional McQueen, its always modified so there is nothing McQueen about it. Kate takes the McQueen out of Alexander. Frankly, I think she is doing the label more harm than justice by turning it into a royal and classy brand while covering all the artistic and creative beauty.

None of them… Kate is MUCH TOO BORING to wearing any of those.

She could wear a potato sack and still look good!

She’s not boring- in fact she has become the face of Sarah Burton for Steve McQueen. I could see her wearing the cap sleeve dress for sure. Some people are just jealous I suppose…
