Monique’s signature red carpet appropriate gowns flowed in one by one, this time devoid of the usual pink and fluff and instead inspired from the sea. A large aqua and green swirly screen stood at the back, making a pretty background for the models. They strutted by in a seemingly endless barrage of eveningwear, some corseted peplum tops and pencil skirts in navy and white prints and then came the gowns. So many gowns.
Textures were revised and played up by incorporating silken georgettes, faille, chiffon and pretty crepes. Seafoam dipped dresses and others draped in sequins with delicate necks. In keeping with the aquatic look, models had wet hair slicked back and then curled in addition to aqua hued eyeshadow. Flowy dresses, red carpet evening wear and the staple celebrity front row attendant, Padma Lakshmi.
