Monique Lhuillier: Modern Princess


Photography by Gordon Ho. Monique Lhuillier

She’s dressed Alicia Keys, Kyra Sedgwick, and Kristin Davis, but Monique Lhuillier gives one the sense that she’s just getting started. For several years she has been known for putting together pretty, on-trend looks, but this season it’s her gowns that are going to make the girls over at Marchesa sweat.

It was a star-studded front row for the Spring/Summer 2011 presentation, and that’s not a coincidence. Monique Lhuillier composes looks that define tasteful. Young red carpet-goers face constant scrutiny for their sartorial choices, but any starlet would easily pass a fashion litmus test with one of the dresses shown this week. Yes, this does mean that choosing a Lhuillier can be construed as playing it safe, but there are still interesting things happening with this line.
