Olivier Theyskens has mastered the art of getting journalists in a tizz - by announcing that he knows who is designing Kate Middleton's wedding dress and coming dangerously close to spilling the beans!

Speaking to Stylelite at the Tribeca Film Festival Theyskens answered a question about who he wanted to design the gown saying: "I... nobody knows?" Before going on to admit: "Oh my God, I know who does it."

Despite the near miss the designer refused to elaborate further: "I will never say! I was thinking everybody knew. I was going to say, like, 'I can't wait to see the dress _______ is making!'"

Theyskens then responded to questions over the apparent revelation earlier this month that Sophie Cranston would be taking care of the dress design, grinning and asking "Who?"

Well played Mr Theyskens, well played.
