Monique Lhuillier F/W '11

Here is my last show from NY Fashion Week!! The last show I managed to make before leaving for reality was Monique Lhuillier. Miss Jay from Top Model, Brittany Snow (who apparently was everywhere) and Julia Stiles all sat in the front row. So did I, along with Sydne Summer, when people didn't show up!The collection aimed (and achieved) a dark and sultry look. There was a heavy use of black an a few pops of vibrant red, but I was especially drawn to the blurry leopard print!
Most of the day time looks felt lean and structured, though with frayed detailing. There were lots of high waisted pants and strong shoulders, flirty ostrich feathers, zexy lace and strappy stilettos by Manolo Blahnik.
As expected, her evening gowns were the show stoppers! Glittering embellishments and lovely draping started off evening, but soon truly glam ballgowns appeared, with textured skirts of tulle and silk organza closing out the show. Here are all my pictures, including some great close-ups of the details, plus a video of the final model walk!
