Sarah is having the busiest weekend of her life, jetting off to NYC as her label is being honored, after designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress — for the biggest fashion event of the year!

Sarah Burton is most certainly getting very little rest this weekend! After designing two gorgeous Royal Wedding dresses for Kate Middleton, as well as her sister Pippa, Sarah is headed to NYC to dress even more celebs as her mentor and former boss Alexander McQueen is honored at the Met Ball. Among the celebs she could be working with? Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene and McQueen favorite, Sarah Jessica Parker!

The Costume Institute Gala to benefit the Metropolitan Museum is thrown every year by Vogue and dubbed the Oscars of the East Coast. This year’s exhibit, Savage Beauty, is a tribute to the work of the late Alexander McQueen. Given her already high profile from designing Kate’s look and the honoring of Alex, as well as the slew of women who are sure to be wearing her new creations for the label, it again seems like a great time to announce Sarah may have secured a new role as the creative director of Dior!

Tired as she may be, it is clear Sarah is having the best week ever!
