Where the desert meets high fashion: Monique Lhuillier's travel diary to Qatar

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

Just last week, designer Monique Lhuillier traveled to Doha, Qatar to host a runway show with 51 East. We got an exclusive look inside Monique's travels -- highlighting her favorite spots for sight-seeing, shopping and eating (of course!) and the very cute friend she made in the desert!

You know you're in for a treat when you're traveling with someone as stylish as Monique. Her eye for color and beauty translates perfectly from fashion to travel, and she gave us an incredible look at this breathtaking city.

Scroll through to see all the gorgeous snaps from her awe-inspiring (and majorly envy-inducing!) trip.
