The designer is making moves to expand her brand, with new boutiques and dominating the red carpet. There were a lot more day looks with lots of drama with fur and feathers. Graphic, animal-like prints like tigers and snake type patterns brought a bold, sexy look to the models. Unfortunately, if I didn't know any better, I might have mistaken them for looks I expected to find on a Roberto Cavalli runway.
The most gorgeous gowns of course, are the ones Monique does best... Flowing, long evening gowns that follow the curves of the body embellished with intricate beading and embroidery. I'm proud to say that in seasons past, I myself had contributed to the jeweled, rich beading that Monique is known for. The short, embroidered dresses are my personal favorites. If I lived the fantasy life I imagine, I would love to consider these my personal daywear.
