Monique Lhuillier is a household name when it comes to bridal couture. Her 2014 Fall Collection is both elegant and feminine and experiments with different wedding dress styles and silhouettes.
Monique was born in the Philippines and from a young age fell in love with design because of her mother’s style and elegance. She moved to Los Angeles at a young age and resides there to this day. To add to her list of credentials, Monique has dressed some high-profile people like Michelle Obama, Halle Berry and Drew Barrymore.
Her new collection has a range of knee-length wedding dresses for the bride who wants to show off some leg. Each of the knee-length dresses are cut in a different way emphasising different aspects of the female body. The Jaime dress is one in particular, which is classy, yet has an element of risqué for daring brides. Made from silk white Chantilly lace, the lingerie strap, scoop neckline slip dress is unique in its own right. It certainly would be a bold choice for any bride.
If you want a timeless, classic wedding dress, the Lucille gown would be our first pick. It is a '50s-inspired shape with a Chantilly lace illusion neckline and A-line skirt. This wedding dress is extremely elegant and will fit well with a vintage-themed wedding.
If you're a bride who likes a floor-length gown, Monique has designed some beautiful wedding dresses to fit this look. The Analise and Esme dresses both have capped sleeves and intricate lace, which adds an element of femininity. But the standout wedding dress within the collection is the Willow gown. This stunning trumpet gown has a full-tiered tulle skirt as well as beautiful gold embroidery throughout the wedding dress. The Willow gown certainly exudes bride Haute Couture and will make any bride shine on her big day. It is definitely one of our favourites.
