Monique Lhuiller is one of the most popular American designers among women who enjoy fashion as an art form in and of itself. In addition to her beloved bridal designs, she has dressed Emma Stone, Blake Lively, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, Kristen Bell, Anna Kendrick, and Michelle Obama. Her fall 2017 line of wedding dresses embraces a youthful whimsy, while still utilizing luxurious fabrics.
The sheer style of “Viola” may bring to mind an embellished negligee, until the design flows into a tulle skirt that conveys a feminine innocence. “Julia” has a similar bodice, except it stops at the natural waist instead of the dropped waist seen on “Viola.” The slender chiffon sheath features a daring thigh-high slit, for a bride looking for sophisticated maturity at the expense of the classic princess appearance.
During the runway show during Bridal Fashion Week in New York, each gown was paired with Monique Lhuiller shoes – embellished with jewels and made from shimmering fabric, leather, and lace. See all of the dresses from the fall 2017 collection in the slideshow above!
