MONIQUE LHUILLIER

The red carpet during the upcoming Hollywood awards season could be a sea of ocean-inspired gowns if Monique Lhuillier has anything to do with it.

Lhuillier, a favorite source for celebrity gowns, presented a bright aqua lace gown draped with a tulle overlay that gave the illusion of rippling waves _ and so did a one-shoulder tiered gown in crepe. A sea-glass green gown was embroidered with sparkly beads and had a low, sheer illusion back, and a textured jacquard strapless gown with a trumpet hemline was an underwater kaleidoscope of colors, including blues, greens and purple.

“The inspiration this season came from a wonderful trip I had in Turkey and I was on a boat and I was looking at the beautiful landscape and water and I was like, that’s it. This is the feeling I want for spring,” Lhuillier said backstage.

“The Emmys are coming up and some of the looks have been selected so they’re on hold,” said Lhuillier. Bet the gold, coral-embellished sculpted gown that served as the finale is one them.
