Padma Lakshmi In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 Emmy Awards

Padma Lakshmi gave me my first set of goosebumps tonight when she hit the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live this evening for the 2012 Emmy Awards.

This orange Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 strapless trumpet gown is to die for.

The beauty is in its simplicity and relaxed styling.

Opting for minimal jewels, natural makeup and glossy, wavy locks, the gown does all the talking.

Who Wore Monique Lhuillier Better…Ginnifer Goodwin or Eva Longoria?

Ginnifer Goodwin wore a striking Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 tangerine gown to the Met Gala earlier this year.

Her silk-chiffon cap-sleeve gown with an embroidered neckline, draped chiffon skirt and leather tangerine waistband was styled with H. Stern jewels and silver Brian Atwood pumps.

Eva Longoria had multiple wardrobe changes at the 2012 ALMA Awards which she co-hosted with George Lopez on Sunday in Pasadena, California.

Her first look was the same Monique Lhuiller gown in black, as worn on the runway.

Even though I much prefer her Tom Ford sandals to Ginnifer’s Brian Atwood pumps, Ginnifer still wins for me.

I much prefer the gown in tangerine, plus I love her attitude, the way she naturally works the slit and the leather waistband which sits higher on her torso.

Eva Longoria In Monique Lhuillier – 2012 ALMA Awards

Eva Longoria was the host of the 2012 ALMA Awards which were held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California, on Sunday evening.

The actress’ first look of the night was a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 gown.

Her jet-black gown with a chiffon beaded neckline, cap sleeves and a central slit is stunning, but I don’t understand why she had to do a Blake Lively all the way down the red carpet.

You may remember the time when Blake Lively wore a Lanvin gown, held to one side to ensure her shapely pins were on display as she walked down the red carpet.

Tom Ford sandals, a chic updo, coral lips and diamond stud earrings completed her look.

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.
