London, Nov 26 (ANI): Ultimo boss Michelle Mone received an OBE from Princess Anne at Buckingham Palace and has her sights set on designing Kate Middleton's bridal lingerie.
"I have designed Kate's bridal lingerie for her, and I'm going to send the designs to her. I think Ultimo fits with her image," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
However, Mone's firm would not have time to design Kate Middleton's dress for her wedding to Prince William, they said.And the 39-year-old even arrived in one of her designs - a bespoke low-cut corset, which revealed a sheer bra underneath, created especially for the event.
"I designed it a few weeks ago but it was only finished last night, so my husband brought it down. I didn't even have a chance to try it on," Mone said.
"I wanted to wear an Ultimo creation, but I did think: "Should or shouldn't I wear it?"
Cake-maker Michelle Turner, who has already created cakes for the Queen's Diamond Wedding anniversary and Prince Charles' 60th birthday, received an MBE.
Harold Tillman, chairman of the British Fashion Council, who received a CBE, also had ideas on Miss Middleton's wedding dress.
"She's so beautiful, anything she wears will look stunning. 'We would like it to be a British designer. I understand there's a shortlist. We have several really excellent designers," he said. (ANI)
