I never thought this particular designer would have a dress that could possibly fit into this category. Fortunately the rest of her collection is sterling,
so I think we can put this one down to a really bad day. Mostly the dress is passable and with a few elements stripped away it could be quite sweet.
So, get rid of the naff high collar, the split down the bosom and the oddly centred large bow. Leave a lace overlay or even turn the lace detail into a jacket over the knee length dress and it would be fine. But as it stands right now, Monique Lhuillier, I feel a little betrayed.
