Monique Lhuillier


My new goddess of bridal fa-shun - Monique Lhuillier

No, no I'm nowhere near getting married, just that I've always loved looking at bridal gowns. Maybe because of all those princess fantasies I used to have, playing Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Cinderella in my nightgowns when I was 6. But with the number of friends who have been getting hitched in the last few years, I've been paying even more attention to bewdiful gowns. When I was in my teens, I made the grandiose declaration that when I got married, the gown would of course be Vera Wang. Of course now I realise not only is Vera Wang hideously expensive, she's kinda...mainstream now.

Enter Monique Lhuillier with her old-school glamour, exquisite lace and ribbons gowns. I particularly like the one on the right, only I'd like it longer, maybe 3/4 length a la Molly Ringwald. Of course it would be helpful if I looked like that too.
