I had the privilege of attending Monique Lhuillier's Spring 2011 show with a smattering of fellow Midwest fashion insiders: Christina Holm-Sandok of Minneapolis, Bjorn Nasett of Milwaukee magazine, Jordan DeChambre of M Magazine and Milwaukee jeweler/stylist Tony Chakonas.
Together we watched Lhuillier unveil a gorgeous array of classic ready-to-wear — slacks, blouses and cocktail dresses — and some amazing couture evening gowns. Her pallette included a washed-out floral print, pops of orange (which is huge for spring) and sleek neutrals.
Numerous celebrities lined the front row, including Brad Goreski of The Rachel Zoe Project (Zoe herself was not in attendance). I snapped a shot of him being interviewed below:
Any idea who the following celebrity is? I thought I heard she's from a reality show.
Here are the rest of my photos, followed by Style.com's photos:
My favorite look from the collection. I'd love to use it in a photo shoot. Look at how beautifully it moves!
