NYFW 2011 - Monique Lhuillier Runway Show

"This Collection came to me in a dream...
A beautiful girl running through a lush garden. Her very own Garden of Eden.
Beautiful flowering trees in watercolor hues.
Red Apple dresses and the temptation of the snake,
Seen in a subtle reptile pattern in flowing chiffons.
Lots of shimmer from the glistening sun on dewy surfaces.
Ombres in blues and greens, pale pinks dominate.

I don't want to wake up, I'm in a state of Euphoria!!"

This charming fairytale was printed on the cover of Monique Lhuillier's show program - and the dream was, without a doubt, reflected in the collection. It was ethereal, it was feminine, it was elegant, playful and inviting. Below are some of my favorite pieces.
The photog pit - mad chaos

Final walk

There you have it. One dress for each girl's alter ego as a magical fairy princess...meets Madison Avenue goddess...meets Oscar winner, all at once.

Photos of entire collection will probably be available on style.com tomorrow.

Happy shopping.
