Celebrities like Beyoncé and Lily Collins wear dresses by fashion designer and FIDM alumna Monique Lhuillier.

Actress Lilly Collins wore a gorgeous gown by FIDM Alumna Monique Lhuillier to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

After giving birth to one of the most famous babies in the world, Beyoncé returned to the public eye to attend husband Jay-Z’s final performance at Carnegie Hall. The pop singer wore a sexy black Monique Lhuillier dress that was covered in sequins. “It was her second appearance since she had her baby, and she looked amazing!” Lhuillier recently told “She surprised me by wearing it! But she’s such a pro, she put it on and looked fabulous.”

Actress Lily Collins, who stars as Snow White in the upcoming film Mirror Mirror, also donned a Lhuillier stunner to attend the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The nude and blue embroidered ball gown, which was from the pre-fall 2012 collection, featured three-quarter length sleeves and plenty of tulle for a princess feel.

Lhuillier, who majored in fashion design at FIDM, launched her self-titled company in 1996 with a bridal collection. After becoming a top American wedding dress designer, Lhuillier added ready-to-wear and evening-wear in 2001. She has attracted fans such as Kristen Stewart, Drew Barrymore, Hilary Swank, and Katie Holmes. There are Monique Lhuillier salons in Beverly Hills and Minneapolis.

“I didn’t know how to cute and sew before I came to FIDM,” Lhuillier explains. “When I was a student I was full of dreams and knew I loved clothing, but I was also scared. I was fortunate that I could start my own line and risk it all.” In addition to her success in fashion, Lhuillier designs a tabletop collection for Royal Doulton, stationery and fine paper, and a bed, bath, and home collection.

FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising is a co-educational, specialized, private college dedicated to educating students for the Fashion, Graphics, Interior Design, and Entertainment industries. Known as a one of the top fashion design schools, FIDM is also a leading graphic design school and digital media college. Visit for more information.
