Monique Lhuillier Spring 2013

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.

Front Row: Brad Goreski, Odette Annable, Padma Lakshmi

Favourites: Teal wave print gown and ink one-shoulder gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Leslie Mann, Malin Akerman, Elizabeth Banks, Nina Dobrev, Emmy Rossum, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kristen Bell, Emma Stone, Eva Amurri, Leslie Bibb, Rose McGowan, Jennifer Aniston and Lily Collins

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier – The Hollywood Reporter TIFF Lounge

Nina Dobrev once again showed off her love of print at the Hollywood Reporter TIFF Lounge at the Toronto Film Festival yesterday.

The actress chose a cute short and top set from designer Monique Lhuillier’s Resort 2013 collection.

Nina can do no wrong on the style front at the moment. In her second Monique Lhuillier look in as many days, the stylish up-and-comer worked this ensemble to perfection.

A pair of Manolo Blahnik for Monique Lhuillier orange shoes, matching bangles and simply parted hair finished her look.

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Perk Of Being A Wallflower’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Nina Dobrev joined Emma Watson on the red carpet for the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ yesterday evening.

The young star, who’s been on my one-to-watch list for a while, delivers in this gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown.

Her printed strapless gown with high-low hemline and sequin embellishments was accented with a simple black ribbon tied at the back.

Brian Atwood peep-toes, a studded clutch, a chic updo and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches to her BDOTW worthy look.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Emmy Rossum In Monique Lhuillier

For me, Emmy Rossum didn’t have much competition this week and judging by your votes you agreed.

The ‘Shameless’ actress looked breath-taking wearing a hot pink Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 dress for her ‘Project Runway’ taping in New York City.

The dress, her styling, her attitude; it all works without a single flaw.

I loved this look so much it on my BDOTY contender board.

Emmy Rossum In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Project Runway’ Taping

Emmy Rossum looked sensational when she was spotted out in New York City en route to film her guest spot on ‘Project Runway’ on Sunday.

The actress stuns wearing a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 dress.

I’m almost at a loss for words at how gorgeous this fuchsia tulle cocktail dress is. When it comes to giving us ultra-feminine glam, no one does it better than Emmy.

I love the frosty pink glossy lip colour which perfectly complements her dress and the sultry tumbling side-swept waves.

She completes the look with leg-lengthening nude pumps, grey nail polish and a stunning pair of Chopard white diamond hoop earrings.

An easy BDOTW contender.

Leslie Mann In Monique Lhuillier – ‘ParaNorman’ LA Premiere

Leslie Mann was nothing less than her usual perfect self when she hit the red carpet at Universal CityWalk in California yesterday evening with co-star Anna Kendrick for the ‘ParaNorman’ premiere.

Dressed in a coral Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 dress, the actress was glowing on the red carpet.

In the absence of a clutch, her flirty pocketed frock, accented with the designer’s signature leather waistband, was simply styled with nude Givenchy pumps.

Two-tone wavy tresses and a gorgeous coral lip shade to match her dress completed her look.

As I said in the beginning, perfect as always.

You can buy her Givenchy pumps from Net-A-Porter.com.
