Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2011 collection featured a lot more black than we’re used to seeing from the designer, but she did add brilliant pops of red and unexpected animal prints, plus nudes which shimmered with light embellishments.

We saw delicate fabrics like lace which gave the collection a very dark, sultry and seductive feel.

Black velvet bows nipped in the waist of most of the looks presented which included knitted cardigans with a peplum waist, feathered vests, pencil skirts, chiffon dresses, floral appliqué gowns, sequined gown and chiffon gowns.

Monique’s celebrity fans will be very happy that they have many red carpet options to select from this collection.
