Monique Lhuillier is a wedding dress designer goddess.

Her dresses are so incredibly beautiful, it hurts just to look at them and know that I'll never get to wear one. Sigh.

(What's that? Oh it's just the sound of tears dripping on my keyboard.)

But you lovely brides may well get to float down the aisle in one of her feminine, glamourous creations!

Just promise me you'll send me photos if you do, ‘kay?

This particular, nameless beauty took my breath away.

I'm not usually one for a whole lot of embellishment and bling but would you just look at that bodice

You can pick your jaws up from the floor now.

Why I adore this Monique Lhuillier gown… it's dripping in diamonds* and glamour.

Perfect for… sophisticated brides having an elegant, adults only, black tie affair. Oh and brides with small busts.

Team it with… a delicate, sheer whisper of a veil like this one. Nude nail polish and a sparkly sash.

Totally and utterly gorgeous isn't it?

* So I'm pretty sure they're rhinestones…but ‘dripping in diamonds' sounds much prettier. Put it down to artistic license.
