Monique Lhuillier designs gorgeous custom wedding gown for her mother
Monique Lhuillier has designed wedding gowns for celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood, and Britney Spears, but this past weekend, she dressed an entirely different kind of VIP in one of her custom creations -- her own mother.
- Monique makes last-minute touch-ups to her mother's custom gown.
- The happy couple!
- Monique's parents on their wedding day.
- Monique's mother on her original wedding day.
Monique's parents celebrated their golden anniversary over the weekend in the Philippines, with a lavish bash honoring the couple's union. Being a bridal designer, it was no question that Monique would design her mother's gown, which she created using lace from the original wedding dress, taken out of its box after forty-eight years, according to WWD.
A beaded antique gold overlay was created to go over the new gown, and Monique's mother looked simply stunning. For more pictures from the evening, courtesy of Monique's Instagram account, click through the gallery above.
