Monique Lhuiller‘s fall 2012 wedding collection was as gorgeous and amazing as always. This year, the collection showed a lot of breadth in terms of level of formality and silhouettes.
The show started with several simple and casual short wedding dresses. These would be ideal for a beach or destination wedding or would serve well as a dress to change into for dancing. I love that she showed dresses with pockets!!
After that flowing, very romantic, empire wasted dresses came down the runaway. I loved the lace cap sleeves on the right and the criss cross detail on the left helps anyone’s waist look small.
Next up were a series of lace dresses in different silhouttes. I think my favorite is the lace dress with a very lady like slip. Its hint of sexy while still being wedding day appropriate.
After the lace series, classic ballgowns came down the runway. This one, had a slightly avant garde feel as it mixed lace and satin fabrics across the bust.
I personally loved this dress with its frothy skirt and slit!
Fitted full skirts, dropped waists, illusion necklines, and moderate trumps silhouttes rounded out the collection.
But, my personal favorites from this collection was this dress, emotion.
I loved the pulled, criss cross chiffon layer over the body, it was unexpected and modern for Monique. The neckline is kind of to die for.
End of the show… so many pretties lined up in a row! So which dress was your favorite?
Monique Lhuiller will always be the best wedding dress designer. 😉
