The Trend: Sexy Lace Sheath

The Dress: Scarlet by Monique Lhuiller, Chosen by Ultimate Bride

In a sea of satin A-line dresses and strapless necklines Monique Lhuillier’s now-iconic lace sheath with a plunging neckline and open, keyhole back immediately stood out. The slim-fitting gown perfectly combined sophisticated and sexy but still looked acutely “bridal” (it was made of lace, remember). Suddenly, traditional silhouettes started to look inappropriately demure and "young" in comparison.
