My favorite looks from the Monique Lhuillier Spring/Summer 2010 presentation.

(Viviane – Adina – Jennifer)

(Bojana – Bojana (2) – Diana)

(I think at this point they stopped giving names for the models. These shall be… 7, 8 and 9)

Which chic cocktail parties would you wear these adorably embellished frocks to? The obvious ringer is the finale piece (the beautiful black tiered floor-length silouette worn by model number 9). My other favorites would have to be the 1920s-inspired flirty and fringe-y numbers on Viviane (that yellow is to die for!) & Adina (the beading looks so ornate).

twilight wedding couture

Whether you like the Twilight books or not, there’s no escaping the craze that plasters every magazine, blog, and poster these days. (I’m more of a TrueBlood fan, myself, but either way: Vampires are so hot right now)

SPOILER ALERT: With the anticipation of the alleged ‘wedding’ between the characters Edward & Bella in the third movie, InStyle.com rounded up a crop of fabulous designers to sketch their idea of Bella’s gown: Monique Lhuillier, Erin Fetherston, Brian Reyes, Max Azria, Prabal Gurung, Lela Rose, Christian Siriano, Badgley Mischka, and Zac Posen.

In Eclipse, “Bella’s dress is described as an early 1900s design (which complements her antique engagement ring) with friend and Maid of Honor Alice Cullen’s modern tweaks to the train and veil.”

Monique Lhuillier’s design is by far my favorite, but I may be biased because she is also my favorite wedding gown designer in general. This gown captures a vintage style with an updated silhouette, perfect for the reserved and interesting Bella. It also would do wonders for Kristen Stewart’s boxy & thin frame, adding elegance with the delicate lace high-neck and a terrific sash for a feminine curve.

My second favorite is a similar, Lela Rose design, which is more angelic and sweet than the Lhuillier.
