Looking at Monique Llhuillier’s Fall / Winter 2010 collection, I kept thinking, “These look like dresses that women wear to the Oscars.” There’s no doubt in my mind that any actress who chooses from this collection will not regret it. These are some seriously beautiful formal looks. Mostly simple, but with original touches that set them apart and keep them from being “just another ball gown.” One crimson floor-length dress featured a strapless bodice and full skirt, done up in deep red crinkly silk. It was absolutely perfect.
But there were work looks, too, and one gray suit with a slightly fringy trim would make Coco Chanel proud. Younger looks included short dresses over tights, and classic cocktail frocks in black and red. All in all, this was a delightful collection that is sure to be widely imitated, but probably not equaled.
