For those of you who need to get acquainted with designer Monique Lhuillier, let me introduce you. Chances are you saw her latest creation on recent-bride, Carrie Underwood, who wed hockey player Mike Fisher. She’s also dressed Britney Spears (to her wedding to ex-Kevin Federline), Jewel, Ashlee Simpson and Kate Walsh, to name a few. Aside from her celebrity followers, her gowns have appeared in tons of editorials (including yours truly) and she’s even branched into bridesmaids, ready-to-wear, table top and fine paper. We love Monique’s creations because they’re elegant, ultra-romantic and very feminine. When I think of a Monique gown the first image that comes to mind is sumptuous texture — like cascading ruffles, embroidery and florals. Her Fall 2011 is a bride’s dream. Stunning embroidery, and textures, a variety of shapes and silhouettes. A great place to start for your gown inspiration! Need to see more?
