For Fall 2012 Monique Lhuiller took a dramatic turn as she amped up the glamour with sexy red carpet gowns with rich reds, sultry black, opulent shimmering gold and fiery volcanic prints.

Add cut-outs, black and red lace and leather accents and we are going to see plenty of jaw-dropping moments on the red carpet.

Whilst Monique is known for her red carpet gowns, she did also send models down the runway in uber-sleek pantsuits, and a gold embellished jumpsuit.

The collection was high on glamour and fashion-forward elements, but I don’t think this will scare off her clients as she has managed to marry classic 40s glamour in a modern, sophisticated way.

With the Oscars just two weeks away, I won’t be surprised to see many of these looks on the red carpet very soon.

Models’ tresses were lacquered and loose with Val Garland for MAC applying that luscious rich matte red colour to their perfect pouts.
