Dresses in all shades of girly: Monique Lhuillier

The further you delve into Monique Lhuillier’s pre-fall 2012 collection, the more elaborate things get. It’s as if the skirts – first slimline and pencil-like – edge their way down and outwards inch by inch, like the growing, low-hanging boughs of a tree. By the closing looks, we’re well into the territory dominated by fishtails, sequins, and tulle.

Both sets of frocks – the short and long – include the kind of winning looks that will catch eyes after nightfall. Some brightly hued satin-bodiced gowns are a little too Bridesmaid. Fortunately for those, the hair and makeup are kept appropriately simple.
