Monique Lhullier, For The Melodramatic Old-Money Socialite In You


In the wise words of American poet laureate Fergie, “Wear them gold and diamonds rings/All them things don’t mean a thing.” After sending out a few powdery all-white looks to open the show, renowned wedding dress designer Lhullier followed up the first few designs with dramatic gowns in saturated jewel tones, most notably the season’s big color: oxblood.

Among those in attendance were longtime devotees Bridget Moynahan and Connie Britton, but it’s easy to picture these gowns on the passed-on classic society fixture Nan Kempner (RIP) or any of the Hearsts. Except Patty, obvs. (She might like the cigarette pants though!)
