Monique, Monique, c’est magnifique! Filipina-French designer Monique Lhullier strikes the Fall runways with another killer collection destined for the red carpet. Metallics continue to be strong for the season but none done as well as Ms. Lhullier’s exquisite designs. Even gold lame manages to look elegant with her magic touch. The glittering gowns are dazzling but I also love the austere funnel necked belted coatdress, it’s a surprising contrast to her otherwise glammed up collection and shows her range beyond wedding gowns. Those of you hesitating on the shiny frocks can test out the look with her metallic skirt, it’s not a big commitment and will update your Fall wardrobe.
Fall ’07 color palette: Metallic gold, gun metal, black, neutral cream and gray
Fall ’07 key looks: Red carpet worthy gowns, form fitting metallic dresses, high neck tunics and dresses. Opaque tights are a must have- my favorite is the Wolford Velvet deluxe 66 available exclusively through Wolford boutiques.
