Monique Lhuillier Named Two of Her New Wedding Gowns 'Catherine' and 'Pippa'
Famed bridal designer Monique Lhuillier, who has dressed celebrity brides such as Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood, Pink, and Alicia Silverstone, unveiled her newest bridal 2012 collection recently. Lhuillier named each of the gowns with a woman's name, as she typically does, but we noticed something interesting this time around. Two of the looks in her new lineup have names with a royal ring to them—Catherine and Pippa! The "Catherine" gown, right, looks fit for a princess with long sleeves, a high neckline, and an all-over lace approach. The "Pippa" dress, left, looks like it could be for a bridesmaid or maid of honor (and Pippa Middleton is the maid of honor at sister Catherine's nuptials) with a short hemline and a more body-hugging silhouette. Could this be just the start of royal inspiration for bridal? Take a closer look at the two royally-named gowns in the gallery.
