This week the latest runner in the "Who's Dressing Kate Middleton?" race is Sophie Cranston of Libelula. Best known for pretty patterned summer dresses, short and long, Libelula launched an affordable bridal range at the end of last year, allowing brides to develop their own unique gown with Sophie Cranston's help. Dresses have a Twenties and Forties feel to them using fine silks, and beautiful appliqué detailing. Ms Cranston has worked under Alexander McQueen and in 2000 teamed up with Alice Temperley to set up the Temperley label before launching Libelula in 2003. Her dresses are understated and stylish, perfectly suited to Ms Middleton's chic style. Prices from £250-£800. See the range at
