Show-stopping Gowns at Monique Lhuillier S/S 2011
“This collection came to me in a dream… a beautiful girl running through a lush garden. Her very own Garden of Eden. Beautiful flowering trees in watercolor hues.” wrote Monique Lhuillier on the cover of her S/S 2011 collection program.
The collection was exactly the designer’s inspiration: a beautiful dream. Beginning with wearable separates and short cocktail dresses, it was already clear where the collection was going. Sequins glittered, fabrics were light and pale floral motifs decorated very wearable chiffon and taffeta dresses.
It was all very pretty, but it wasn’t until the appearance of the first of many show-stopping gowns that everyone was truly swept off their feet. One after the other, the models walked out in the gowns, each more beautiful than the last. It was red carpet on a white runway. Rachel Zoe’s right hand man Brad Goreski (@mrbradgoreski) was in attendance, a promising sign of future sightings of these incredible creations on the stars.
Forty looks later, it was time to wake up. I can’t speak for everyone else, but I sure wasn’t ready.
