Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier featured in People magazine
US-based Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier was featured in the latest edition of People magazine where she talks about the gowns she created for singer-actress Mandy Moore at the recent Oscar Awards, reports PEP.ph.
Moore wore two Lhuiller creations: a nude, off-shoulder mermaid dress with 2,500 citrine crystals, matte gold sequins, and gold beads on the red carpet, and a cobalt blue gown during her "I See the Light" performance with Zachary Levi from the animated film Tangled (where she voiced Rapunzel).
"What girl is not going to feel great wearing a dress like this?" Moore said about her red carpet dress, and likened her blue gown to a "big cupcake, but in the best way possible!" Lhuillier said she wanted to highlight the small waistline and feminine shoulders of the singer, and that her creations looked "beautiful on Mandy because she’s so statuesque and elegant," according to PEP.ph.
More than 10 workers were said to have created the two gowns within 550 hours. Other stars who have worn Lhuillier creations include Catherine Zeta-Jones, Demi Moore, Anne Hathaway, Marcia Cross, Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson, Taylor Swift, and more.
