William & Kate's Royal Wedding

At this point the dress is being sewn in a cave somewhere by a thousand round-the-clock workers, will be covered in golden tarp when complete, then airlifted to Kate Middleton exactly three seconds before she exchanges vows with Prince William.

Seriously, people. Aside from Kate herself, no one knows who's making the gown or what it looks like. Not even Wikileaks could crack this.

So it should come as little surprise today when the last designer accused of whipping up the mysterious get-up, Sophie Cranston, had to make a public statement denying she has anything to do with the soon-to-be-world famous number.

What say you, Sophie?

"For the purpose of clarification we are not designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress," said the rep for Cranston's fashion house, Libélula. "We, like everyone else, can't wait to find out who it is!"

The label was forced to respond to a flurry of questions on who, what and wear after The Huffington Post fingered Libélula as Middleton's final pick. The company, which follows a policy of not commenting on private clients, quickly became the focus of so much media attention, it finally broke its vow of silence to speak out publicly.

The whispers about Cranston had started because Middleton stepped out wearing one of the British designer's coats at a wedding earlier this year.

Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton was also rumored to have won the high-profile designing gig, but Burton had insisted to Vogue that she is not the chosen one.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail got in on the dress guessing game over teh weekend, reporting that Middleton was busy (you know, with just a little more than a week to go before the big day and all) furiously sketching gowns and delivering the drawings herself for what the newspaper wags described as an ivory satin and lace ditty with pearl buttons. 

So far the only dresses we have been allowed to see were the cute, colorful, inexpensive numbers the bride-to-be purchased Tuesday on London's trendy King's Road. She scored three printed summer pieces priced from $72 to $105 from Warehouse, with the store owner gushing on the store's website that Middleton was "down to earth and lovely."

For now, those (possible honeymoon?) outfits will have to do until the big reveal next Friday at Westminster Abbey.
