The designer is known for her ethereal creations, but for Fall she infused bold, dramatic elements into the collection — and it was simply stunning! The dresses oozed sexy glamour and we can’t wait to see our favorite Hollywood stars rock the looks from the romantic, dark collection.
Monique Lhuillier debuted her Fall 2014 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in NYC on Feb. 8, and as soon as we got a glimpse of the intricate designs it was clear that it would only be a matter of time before the gorgeous looks go from the runway to the red carpet!
Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2014 Collection:
Monique’s signature feminine creations were juxtaposed with architectural details, adding structure to the effortless collection. The result? Stronger, bolder looks that oozed both sexy elegance and gave off a romantic vibe. The intricate detailing and ethereal vibe that the designer is known for was still very visible in the collection as embroidered dresses and embellished creations came down the runway that incorporated delicate lace and illusion detailing. The romantic vibe was met with new textures, like leather, mink, and vinyl, to create a bold, sexy look.
Capes have proved to be a popular trend for more contemporary lines this season, and it continued in evening wear as Monique’s dresses incorporated capes — and we’ve already seen stars rock capes on the red carpet! Both Katy Perry and fashion-forward newcomer Lupita N’yongo have shown off the silhouettes — and we’re bound to see more stars try it now, too!
The models wore their hair back, keeping the focus on the frocks, as they rocked pretty, pink nails. Julie Kandalec for essie dreamed up a manicure in a pretty, pastel pink nail that had a soft, sheer element to it. Sticking to the feminine vibe of the collection, it popped against the pink hues in the line.
Monique is such a go-to for stylish stars, and we can definitely see all of her celeb fans loving the new collection! What do you think of her latest line?
