Monique Lhuillier Desgins Anastasia Steele's Wedding Gown in “FIFTY SHADES FREED”
Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele dons a custom-lace wedding gown and veil by Monique Lhuillier, renowned bridal, ready-to-wear and accessories designer, in Fifty Shades Freed, the all-new installment of the Fifty Shades of Grey series.
Known for her romantic glamour and modern elegance, Monique Lhuillier brilliantly captures Anastasia’s alluring beauty and vulnerability in this design. The long sleeve, off-the-shoulder, dégradé Chantilly-lace tulle-sheath gown—with open illusion back and trail of lace covered buttons—exudes femininity and sophistication. A Cathedral-length tulle veil with appliqués of Chantilly lace adds astonishing glamour for Anastasia’s grand entrance.
In keeping with the essence of her brand, Monique’s design evokes an enchanting and whimsical, yet sophisticated vision by weaving together sensuous and modern elements. The classic, ethereal and effortless silhouette of the dress—topped with the elegantly embellished veil—is distinctly Monique Lhuillier.
ABOUT Fifty Shades Freed
“I was so delighted to be asked to design an iconic wedding dress for the character of Anastasia Steele for this climactic chapter of the Fifty Shades of Grey series," said Monique. "Further building on the success of the show-stopping look I designed for the masquerade ball in Fifty Shades Darker, it was a wonderful experience to be involved in this production. Once the wedding gown hits the big screen, I know this timeless design will live forever."
The Monique Lhuillier wedding gown and veil designed for Anastasia and Christian’s wedding can now be seen in the trailer for Fifty Shades Freed. The feature film will be released in Philippine cinemas February 7, 2018.
