Monique Lhuillier – Shady Lady

Monique Lhuillier has become one of the most extraordinary designers of our time for modern red carpet looks of the Hollywood elite.  Her dresses are breathtaking works of art!   My favorite was a birch-washed organza ostrich feather ruffle embroidered gown that swept the floor behind the model as she walked the runway.  The theme this season was ‘Shady Lady’…a bond girl filled with mystery and a little Goth. Eyes were dark and sinister, hair was sculpted into ribbons on top of the head…accented with a velvet bows and…..NAILS…elongating, artistic and interesting!  One coat of Silver Chrome, followed by a coat of Desert Suede…for a cool and confident base tone and then the edge was thinly iced with Deep Amethyst (a rich aubergine out September 1, 2011).  The look was absolute unique perfection!

Love these photos!
