Calling all newly minted fiancées, soon-to-be brides, and just sheer wedding eye-candy fans — the Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2018 collections are finally here. One example is the trendy off-the-shoulder top look reworked as a wedding dress. At Lela Rose, a model wore a long, crisp white gown featuring an off-the-shoulder panel made of tiny, perfect, delicate white pearls. White gowns were still the majority, but black wedding dresses seem to be back.
Malia Obama spent the holiday weekend on a ski trip with designer Monique Lhuillier and friends. Former first daughter Malia Obama took full advantage of the long weekend by skiing with designer Monique Lhuillier and a glamorous entourage. The 18-year-old posed for a group photo with Lhuillier and friends at the Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro in Aspen, Colo., wearing a white long-sleeved shirt and a red, white, and blue ski hat emblazoned with “USA.” Lhuillier posted the image to Instagram on Monday, where it quickly racked up more than 1,600 likes.
Sarah Hyland made an early case for Emmys best dressed, arriving on the red carpet in a dramatic strapless top and black pants, as opposed to a more de rigueur gown. The Modern Family actress paired the dark trousers and an epic top from Monique Lhuillier with a giant split train, covered in floral embroidery.
“I wish I could say it was love at first sight,” Ligaya tells Yahoo Style, “but admittedly I don’t even remember meeting Russ — though he claims to have been struck by me somehow.” Fortunately, fate stepped in and the couple was formally introduced a short time later when the future bride and groom became co-workers at Yelp.
Photos: AP Images If Michelle Obama and Blake Lively are any indication, one outfit a day just isn’t enough anymore. On Tuesday, the first lady and her husband, President Barack Obama, welcomed Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe to the United States—in style (well, Michelle at least). For the first ceremony of the day, the 51-year-old (yes, she looks shockingly young) wore a watercolor ensemble from Filipino designer Monique Lhuillier. She paired the metallic-sheen ensemble with a similarly shiny low-slung silver heel. From the White House to Great Falls Elementary School in Great Falls, Virginia, Michelle changed into a Tadashi Shoji long-sleeved dress (maybe in the motorcade?). For the state dinner—whose guest list included George Takei, Russell Wilson and new girlfriend Ciara, and Shonda Rhimes with a meal prepared by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto—in honor of their guests, Michelle gave a nod to the foreign dignitaries by wearing a number, again from Tadashi Shoji, who hails from their country.

There’s hair, makeup, and the need to stay zen throughout the lead up to a big event like, say, your wedding, so we asked Lhuillier what kind of advice she gives brides. Four Weeks Before: Lhuillier tells her brides to indulge in wellness-related activities to help counter the inevitable stress that comes with planning a wedding. A full body deep tissue massage, or reflexology, is a great de-stressor toward which she steers brides. Three Weeks Before: Lhuillier believes that fitness plays a crucial role in looking your best, along with countering stress, and she encourages her brides to stay active every day starting three weeks prior.
