LOVE POSH.I.ON: Sarah Burton, The Royal Couturier

Last year, Sarah Burton and Alexander McQueen styled Mother Monster aka Lady Gaga in her Bad Romance video.

Today, Sarah Burton, 36, reigns supreme in the royal romance of Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge (fomerly known as Miss Catherine Middleton) to His Royal Highess, The Duke of Cambridge (formerly known as Prince William).

Born and raised in Manchester, U.K. as one of four, Burton graduated from Manchester Polytechnic and Central St.  Martins.  Her third year of college, Burton became an intern for the late Alexander McQueen (a Central St. Martins alum). After his tragic death, Burton took over as Creative Director.  Burton's design range of fashion travels the spectrum from the Ave Maria of HRH The Duchess of Cambridge to the Avant Garde of Lady Gaga, mixed with dressing American Royalty, United States First Lady Michelle Obama and Academy Award-winner Gwyneth Paltrow.

Now, Sarah Burton is fashion royalty.

Who is your favorite wedding dress designer?
