Monique Lhuillier. Need I say more? She never fails to take my breath away with the ethereal qualities, and her ability to design dresses that make anyone look amazing. Her newest collection didn't disappoint, and I was happily surprised to see this gauzy number (right)- a nice change from her famous lace creations.
St Pucchi took the cake for me this year- especially since I'm not normally the St. Pucchi type. The dresses are always awesome, but their signature nude effect with boning and over the top skirts and embellishments just aren't my style. But these dresses from the new collection stopped me in my tracks- almost modest, but not, yet strikingly elegant at the same time. Love.
Vera Wang- I'll never get enough. Vera threw traditional white out this year and replaced it with nudes and *gasp* all black gowns. Remember the black gown trend a few years ago? I never could tell if the fad took off and turned into a trend back then, but what are your thoughts- think it will turn into a 2012 trend this year?
