New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Monique Lhuillier

At a Monique Lhuillier show, all you really want to see are the gorgeous gowns. The smart and pretty separates are lovely, but those feminine gowns are the real spectacle. I'm sure my girl crush, Malin Ackerman, who was sitting front row, would agree.

Though the show notes said "Luxurious Tropical Island Chic," I also saw a country story here. With prints of wheat stalk and wicker, and corn field colors, the silhouettes were billowy and flowing. The fabrics and prints were more rustic, more rough. Embroidered belts, poetic sleeves, gold beading, and jeweled necks and armholes brought the romance we all know and expect from the red-carpet ready clothes.

In this group, I was more drawn to the cocktail dresses, with twisted halters and punchy colors. However, this natural tulle ball gown with draped tear skirt was a vision. The gold Wonder Woman belt and matching platform sandals brought the luxe to the next level.

For more lovely Lhuillier,

I normally pay very little attention to fashion 'art' cause you can't wear this stuff in normal day to day life, but these pieces are astounding. The lead in gown served it's purpose but then all the dresses left me wishing I could wear a version of it... somewhere:)the gold toned after the aqua...my favorite!
