The daughter of a French diplomat, Monique Lhuillier always admired the lavish gowns her mother and other stylish guests would wear to high-profile events, moving her to create her eponymous eveningwear label. Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift and Emma Watson are all fans of the intricately detailed and expertly crafted designs. We especially love the flattering trumpet silhouettes in our edit.
