Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011

Where & When: Monday, September 13 at 3 p.m., the Stage, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: It was a veritable garden of earthly delights at Monique Lhuillier's spring show. We all know her wedding gowns, but Lhuillier also does a steady business in all kinds of dresses, from chic daytime sheaths to red carpet stunners--and there was certainly a lot to please her ladies-who-lunch clientele. The theme was Garden of Eden, and what came down the runway was simply beautiful: floral print, glittering gold, blazing red, and even vivid green dresses. Pretty is what Lhuillier does best, and it's nice to see her embrace it with such passion. Expect these dresses to dominate the red carpet come awards season.
Standout Look: The only blue dress in the bunch, this one stands out for its nearly over-the-top petal skirt. Lhuillier noted that the collection came to her in a dream; with dresses like this, you can see why.
Bonus Points: The celeb-packed front row had Brad Goreski (better known as Rachel Zoe's assistant), Jessica Lowndes from 90210, chef Giada De Laurentiis, Perrey Reeves from Entourage, Emma Roberts, Gilmore Girl Alexis Bledel, Olivia Palermo (who I saw nearly everywhere on Monday), and Maggie Grace, i.e. Shannon from Lost. Whew!
