The Monique Lhuillier Resort 2012 Collection is a balance between chic casual and graceful glamour. Monique designed this collection with an intent to dress her clients for an earlier hour – ‘we’re talking before 5pm’ the designer reported. Instead of red-carpet gowns she is reputed for, her Resort 2012 Collection includes a selection of stylish shirt dresses, skirt suits, resort pants and tea length dresses. But of course, it wouldn’t be a Monique Lhuillier show without a display of beautiful gowns. Her evening looks include sexy dresses in fabulous Monet-like patterns and zebra prints. Glamorous gowns in sunset shades of pinks, coral and lavender. Classic gowns in black and gold with shimmering metallic embroidery and adorable tea length dresses in pretty pinks and tangerine reds. Here are a few stand outs we think would be right at home at a stylish wedding. You can see all our favorites on Facebook in our Bliss Wedding Gallery.
For me, the show-stopper is this gorgeous Wisteria Silk Organz Draped Gown with cascading floral embroidery. Just as lovely, is the Java Strapless Gown with embroidered bodice and draped silk faille skirt – either would look amazing on a bride wanting to make a fabulous and bold style statement!
This Poppy Silk Faille Bateau Cocktail dress would be perfect for a 50s inspired bridesmaid and this Navy Cotton/Silk Ruffle Front Vest a stylish sensation for your next After 5 function or rehearsal dinner.
Watch the sun go down in a glorious Sorbet Silk Organza Gown or a One Shoulder Sunset Print Taffeta Ruched Cocktail Dress.
Glow from head to toe in a Gold Tulle Strapless Gown with cascading embroidery or a stunning Strapless Fully Embroidered Java Gown.
Turn heads in this striking Black & Cream Ombre Chiffon One shoulder Side Draped Gown or Indigo Tie Dye Strapless Side Draped Gown.
