ON THE DARK SIDE
New York: Monique Lhuillier has built a name for herself with bridal gowns and show-stopping dresses that are a mainstay on the red carpet, but this season she showed the dark side of her typically feminine aesthetic. Gothic inspiration emerged through macabre skull prints, black textured lace and moody florals, while elaborate beading, baroque embroidery and fringe added evening-appropriate glitz. — Shannon Davenport
