Monique Lhuillier has a talent for interior design! The celebrity-loved designer proved as much last night when she opened the doors to her New York flagship store, a gorgeously-decorated 3,000-foot, two-story space housed in a 19th century townhouse in the Upper East Side. “People always ask me if I wasn’t a fashion designer what would I be, and I always say I would be an interior decorator,” she told InStyle.com at the store’s opening bash. With her eye for design—teamed with the vision of interior designer Jennie Abbott—Lhuillier created a space where any fashion-lover would feel comfortable shopping surrounded with gray suede walls, jewel-box vitrines, and Waterford chandeliers. “I wanted to create a very couture feel, like in Paris—the experience of walking into salons and having lots of space and lounge, and to also have a private experience,” she added. The downstairs features ready-to-wear, while the chic staircase leads to cozy, intimate bridal salon filled with plush gowns, delicate veils, and to-die-for tiaras. “When you walk up, there is that sense of discovery,” Lhuillier added. Take a look for yourself the next time you’re in NYC, by visiting 19 East 71st Street, at Madison Avenue.

Ever since Nicki Minaj stunned fashion lovers at the American Music Awards red carpet by wearing the same citrus Monique Lhuillier gown Julie Bowen wore to the Emmys in September, we’ve been wondering how Minaj came to wear the curve-hugging look. Turns out, the designer was just as surprised! “The best part was I had nothing to do with it,” Lhuillier told InStyle.com at the opening of her new flagship store in New York City last night. “I was surprised! I saw her on the screen and I was like, ‘Oh! So, she bought it at one of the stores.’” So, did she think Minaj pulled it off? “I thought she rocked that dress,” Lhuillier said. Now that’s a compliment, Barbz!
