Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012

You would be forgiven if you thought Monique Lhuillier’s Spring 2012 collection had a Fall-like feel to it.

The designer shunned floral prints and pastels, for bold saturated colours with a sporty athletic edge.

We saw a lot of fitted dresses with intricate seaming to outline the body.

One off-the-shoulder dress had leather panels on the sides to create the illusion of a streamline figure.

Monique used a lot of colour blocking and leather accents which gave the looks an expected edge.

Cut-outs with lace inserts provided sexy finishing touches.

A lot of lace was used in this collection. I particularly loved the use of black lace against the yellow trench coat.

I also loved the graphic splash paint prints on dresses, gowns and pants.

Odile Gilbert created tight high ponytails, whilst Val Garland for MAC gave the models a flawless look with black and blue eyeliner.

Manolo Blahnik created those sexy strappy sandals. I bet SJP will get her hands on them first.

Front Row: Eddie Cibrian (swoon), LeAnn Rimes, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Rose McGowan, Mandy Moore, Joanna Garcia and Julianne Hough

Favourites: cobalt blue twisted tulle off-the-shoulder dress and yellow and black lace trench coat

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Mandy Moore, Kerry Washington, Camilla Belle, Diane Kruger, Heidi Klum, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Weisz, Catherine Zeta Jones, Paz Vega, Ashley Greene, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lucy Liu, Leslie Mann, Anne Hathaway and LeAnn Rimes

    No me likey. I watched the show online, and I was waiting and waiting to be wowed. It never happened. I loved some looks, but I was really expecting more from her. She is usually the person I can count on to bring the sparkle and color.

    The red dress for Kerry Washington or Camilla Belle.

    It’s quite an edgy collection from her..usually when I think of Monique Lhuillier I think of floaty, soft pretty looks, this has a bit of a sexy Versace vibe to me! 🙂 I like it regardless! 🙂

    I had expected Monique Lhuillier to be worn by Carrie Underwood, but with this collection, I am not sure….

    However, I love the bold prints. The red dress is my favorite. Oh if only I were rich and famous….;-)
