In Monique Lhuillier’s show notes she said she was inspired by the Masia Warriors.
Whilst viewing the collection I felt more of a roaring 20s vibe from the flapper dresses and fringed detailing. The collection for me paid homage to screen stars of a golden age with the classic shapes and strong detailing.
The collection was supremely elegant. It felt like Monique had made decision to make the pieces more simplistic.
The gowns and dresses breathlessly whispered look at me.
There wasn’t too much frou frou. No bells no whistles just stunning gowns with beautiful details.
Stunning evening gowns will make the Rachel Zoe and the other stylists at the presentation happy, but there were also cute cocktail dresses.
The pieces were jewel encrusted, draped, pin-tucked, ruched and of course fringed.
With the Emmy’s around the corner, I’m guessing many will have be picked as potential contenders for the big night.
Here are a few of my favourites. You can view the whole collection at Style.com.
