#7. Monique Lhuillier
Nature is a constant source of inspiration for Monique Lhuillier, making the garden at Ladurée’s downtown outpost an ideal setting for her Spring ’17 bridal show. This season, she described her brides as “nymphs” traipsing through the daisies and wisteria, unencumbered by corsets, boning, or excessive beading. Fans of Lhuillier’s princess-worthy gowns will still find embellishments and ball skirts here, but everything was noticeably lighter than her usual bridal fare—and sexier, too.
