When seated at the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013 show, I was delighted to see so many celebrity stylists in the front row, because when it comes to red-carpet dresses and gowns, Monique Lhuillier is their go-to woman.
Inspired by water and the life of the sea, this season Monique introduced modern digital prints to her pieces for a refreshing twist, with peplum details also adding to the edgier flare.
Before we got to the gowns, we saw ladylike sheath dresses, bodycon dresses, kimono-sleeve blouses, fitted pants, peplum tops, and fit-and-flare dresses.
And then the gowns… oooh the gowns… draped, strapless, one-shoulder, embellished, lace, tulle, chiffon, printed and long sleeved; there was a gown for every red carpet or evening occasion.
The last 10 gowns had me craning my neck to get a closer look, especially the show-stopping gold coral-embroidered sculpted gown which closed the show.
Models sported lacquered, loose hair with the MAC team using Monique’s aquatic inspiration to give the models bold-blue or teal eyeshadow.
Since Monique has mastered gowns, she debuted her shoe collection during this presentation.
