- Anne Curtis' wedding gown was made by world-renowned fashion designer Monique Lhuillier
- Monique is from the Philippines! Yes, Pinay pride indeed!
- Her wedding gown comes with a hefty price tag
Every girls dream is to feel like a princess on her wedding day. So one of every bride to be's dilemma is choosing her dress designer.
If price is not an issue, like in the case of Anne Curtis, her designer is Pinay pride Monique Lhuillier.
Monique has dressed hollywood stars and important political figures like Kristen Stewart, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore and the First Lady Michelle Obama.
On Anne's recent Instagram post she thanked Monique for giving life to her dream wedding dress which started when she was still a little girl.
According to Anne, it took 10 months to make her gown which includes a total of visits.
"My wedding dress journey I think as a little girl we always imagine or dream of our wedding dress and how we want it to look like... but when the day actually comes it can get quite overwhelming.... so I want to take this opportunity to thank this amazing and gorgeous woman @moniquelhuillier for making me the most beautiful dress I’ve ever worn in my life. Thank you for making it everything I’ve ever imagined it to be and more - Ethereal, dreamy, traditional yet still fun. (Talk about confusing right?) yet Monique made my dream dress come to life. I can’t even express in words how I felt the moment you first put a veil on me and then again when I put on the dress for our last fitting. Thaaaaaaank you for making it a memorable bridal journey for me. Truly unforgettable. It took 10 months with 4 visits -with each visit the dress just blooming into life- but I felt like it went by sooooo fast... I think I’ll always feel kilig when I pass by Monique Lhullier on Melrose whenever I’m in town. Thank you again Monique. Can’t wait for my own little girl to wear this dress one day.... Can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks already..." @moniquelhuillierbride #moniquelhuillier #mlbride #custombride
Monique also posted on her social media account how fun it was to work with Anne Curtis.
“This beautiful soul came into our lives 10 months ago. She was committed to creating the gown of her dreams. It was very important for her to create a one of kind wedding dress that would reflect the one of a kind love she shares with her now husband.”
“She had such a joyous spirit and was a dream to work with through her multiple meetings and fittings. It entailed sketch, fabric and design selection, and took hundreds of hours to bring to life. The end result is a regal, lace ball gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, sheer long sleeves and an exaggerated, cathedral-length train with matching, hand appliqué lace veil.”
“Brides like you remind me why the gown is such an important part of the wedding. Congratulations @annecurtissmith and thank you for letting me be a part of your fairytale! xM ???? #moniquelhuillier #weddingwednesday #mlbride #custombride #bts”
