From the beautiful opening look featuring a Balenciaga'esque cropped balloon sleeve and rounded, poofy silhouette, Lhuillier sent gorgeous look after look down the runway. High ruffled necklines, fur capelets, and black tulle shrugs graced little suits, shifts, and other 50s inspired ladylike dressing. From brocade with metallic accents to lace & other fancy fabrics, Lhuiller opted for dressy classics. FT fave looks included a belted, long-sleeve tunic for the red carpet - long sleeves are looking particularly fresh for red carpet occasions - and A-line coats.  In all, a beautiful collection.

The color palette:

  • black
  • salt & pepper
  • grey & oyster grey
  • teal
  • sky blue
  • brown
  • and a particularly gorge "smokey" lavender

Accessories & hair/makeup:

  • grey tulle rosette pins
  • ruffles & ruffled neckines & bell sleeves
  • defined waists & bows that tied in the back
  • a slicked back chignon & pale, "non-makeup" makeup
