You’ve heard her oh-la-la name that, in itself, speaks haute couture. You have definitely seen her gorgeous and flowy ethereal gowns draped off of Hollywood royals.  And now if you’re a bridesmaid , you could be wearing some of designer Monique Lhuillier’s latest – for a department store price!

Note to brides: These to-die-for dresses may create the ‘Pippa Middleton effect’ for your ladies in waiting. Eyes may temporarily flicker, so choose wisely (bridesmaids, dresses, either/or…)

The new line called ML Monique Lhuillier Bridesmaid Collection is exclusive to Nordstrom and available in-store and online. Full of satins, chiffons, and tafettas, the designs are more than delicious in their figure-friendly styles, colors and fabrics. Yes, ladies – the age of the cheesy (and often hideous) bridesmaid frills is over.

The collection includes strapless, ruched numbers that could seamlessly double as cocktail dresses, and flowy, A-line gowns youthful enough for prom-going fashionistas. Monique Lhuillier beautifully transitions into mainstream design by offering options for women of all ages and style preferences, without compromising a thread of her signature class.

Of course –  such an impressive line can expect a hefty price tag, but here the designer truly surprises us by offering many of the dresses for under $200. Truly a bargain, if there ever was one in fashion heaven! Check out some of  the gorgeous designs, below.  I’ll definitely be sifting through for my next formal frock!
