This ultra-stylish debut book celebrates the eternally feminine, whimsical, and divinely chic red-carpet dresses and bridal gowns created by one of fashion’s foremost designers.
Internationally acclaimed fashion designer Monique Lhuillier started by designing exquisite bridal wear in 1996 in Los Angeles. With collections that are sophisticated and feminine and appeal to modern women, Lhuillier expanded to include ready-to-wear, footwear, bags, accessories, and fragrances. Her distinct aesthetic is inspired by her mother’s graceful style combined with Lhuillier’s trademark refined touch of romance—adding a splash of glamour and a playful fairy-tale element to each design. From dazzling red-carpet cocktail dresses and alluring eveningwear to her showstopping bridal gowns, every beautiful piece is created with the finest fabrics and unparalleled craftsmanship.
This debut volume captures the joy, chic opulence, and modern femininity of the Monique Lhuillier brand. The designer takes us through page after page of gorgeous celebration gowns and ready-to-wear pieces: sequin-embellished tulle frocks, elegant long-sleeved sheath gowns with front slits, and luxurious couture wedding dresses with flutter sleeves—all embodying Lhuillier’s inventive romanticism with a modern tilt. Loyal celebrity fans include Emma Stone, Halle Berry, Blake Lively, Gwyneth Paltrow, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, Regina King, Jessica Alba, and former First Lady Michelle Obama, among others.
