Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2012

Monique Lhuillier fine tunes uptown elegance for her Pre-Fall 2012 collection. With minimal use of colour and an abundance of ideas, she has created day and evening wear that personifies femininity in it's most favorable form. Lace covered dresses that are fit for a high tea at the palace, or for the fashion-conscious bridesmaid. Then there are extravagant evening gowns that beg to be shown off at prime red carpet events.

Besides for innovative black and white prints, Monique has used blue as a primary colour choice. From cobalt to sapphire, indigo and navy, to shades of midnight, this collection gives new meaning to the term 'feeling blue'. We are presented with jubilant blue creations, in draped chiffon, full tulle skirts, satin ruffles and impeccably placed lace. Silhouettes are kept full and billowy, suited for any type of figure. 

The one dress that I'd really like to see worn on the red carpet is the second last one at the end - which has royal blue lace gently adorning a nude tulle gown. Perhaps on someone regal like Kate Middleton or even Keira Knightly.

Welcome back! I hope you had an amazing Christmas time!
I saw the dresses yesterday, but since I was tired, went to the beach and came back the same day (it's a 270 km-trip then), I decided to write today!
You always find the most beautiful dresses!
For me, I would buy all of them, really, all of them, but since it would be impossible, I really LOVED (really want that!) the very first one, in black and white! It's simply my style, with full skirt!

Monique Lhuillier is an amazing designer, all the gowns you featured on this post have a magestic feeling on them, and although they are not wearable for everyday, they are perfect for a very formal event as oscars and oh so princess like.
