Monique Lhuillier Neon Gown
Three award shows in eleven months - one sparkling neon dress. This fluorescent yellow Monique Lhuillier gown has made a vivid impact on the red carpet this year, worn by three different celebrities at three high profile Hollywood events. Either their stylists have not been paying attention or they must all just really love this dress.
Nicki Minaj donned the radiant lime green trumpet gown to the American Music Awards held this weekend on 18 November 2012. Her signature wild blonde tresses, hot pink lips and a statement gold neckpiece accented her look from Monique Lhuillier's Resort 2013 collection.
Modern Family actress Julie Bowen first wore the glaring acid green gown with drape-folded mermaid skirt to the 2012 Emmy Awards, which was held in Los Angeles on 22 September 2012. A gold Swarovski clutch bag and large Bochic earrings accessorized her outfit. Julie kept her hair and makeup low key.
Back in January 2012, Paula Patton wore what seems to be the same strapless dress, only in a slightly different shade of luminous lime yellow. The Mission:Impossible actress picked out the Spring 2012 version of Monique Lhuillier's showstopping gown for her appearance at the Golden Globe Awards. She carries a Judith Leiber clutch and wears Kwait jewels.
These are both the gleaming gowns as shown on the runway. The design is exactly the same, however the colour of the Resort 2013 dress differs slightly towards a more neon green tone.
As for 'Who Wore It Better'...I think it's clear the stunning and very striking gown suits every skin tone and sense of style, however my vote goes to Julie Bowen. She wears it with class and sophistication. What are your thoughts?
