Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week: Monique Lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier's runway proceeds like a fantastic call to femininity. Bow-tied belts cinch dresses perfectly at the waist, echoing that kind of Old Hollywood glam in the retro-styled hair and sultry cat-eyes. Then, a feather-trimmed skirt tops a pair of skinny black trousers and a slim blazer; shoulder embellishments on a sparkly black sheath, and lace-up heels — details that work to counter the call to vintage with the more modern femme, while a palette of black lace, red, and leopard-print further that call to classic femininity in the most glamorous way.

  • Trends: Sheer and lace detailing, leopard-print, textured gowns, sweetheart necklines, bows.
  • Colors: Black, red, leopard.
  • Key Looks: A bow-tied blazer and feathered skirt layered over pants; a textured rosette and sequined cocktail dress in red.
  • Accessories: Ballet-inspired, lace-up heels, bow-tied ribbon belts, and dotted, sheer black tights.
  • Who Would Wear It: Carey Mulligan; the modern femme with an affinity for vintage glamour.
