Monique Lhuillier Disregards Ball Gowns for 2010

In a bid to keep up with the recent wave of architecturally-inspired clothes, Monique Lhuillier opted in with "sharply defined structure and the rich embellishment of those perennial fashion icons, the Masai of East Africa."

Another change for Monique Lhuillier, a designer best known for her elegant and sophisticated ball gowns, was the absence of them. But while there was not a ruffly ball gown in sight, there were certianly more than enough sleekly draped evening gowns.

My favourite pieces from Monique Lhuillier’s Spring ‘10 collection? The very modish tailored jacket with a black-edged bow-belt and neckline, as well as a black chiffon evening gown belted at the waist with see-through voluminous sleeves.
