Monique Lhuillier Spring 2011 Bridal Collection

Fabric roses, structured ruffles, and Oscar de la Renta-like fur-embellished skirts dominate Monique Lhuillier’s spring 2011 bridal collection. I normally love Monique Lhuillier’s work but this collection is kind of a hit or miss. There are more hits than misses though, and they’re absolutely stunning!

The fabric roses provide interesting texture and the same romanticism of good old fashioned ruffles.

I love the sheer lace cape! It looks like an updated, more fashionable version of the kimona.

The fabric roses on this mermaid dress are more distinct – reminds me a little of frosted flowers on a cake. I think I prefer soft tulle roses over this one.

Interesting texture on this dress. I’m not sure it’s very wearable, but it’s definitely a gorgeous work of art. It takes skill to create ruffles like this one!

Oscar de la Renta’s spring 2011 collection had a few dresses with similar fur-like skirts. I think this skirt would dwarf a petite bride.
