This regal gown is one of the most intricate, textured pieces we’ve ever seen. It features Chantilly lace and beaded floral lace that combine to create a flawless silhouette. Chalamet will hug your curves and make you sparkle all the way down the aisle. It also boasts detachable off the shoulder sleeves for a delicate addition. The skirt finishes off the style with layers of draped organza and a horsehair hem.





Aaliyah is a more daring gown, with its figure-hugging mermaid silhouette and bold plunging neckline. It also features a low back and illusion side cutouts for a dose of sex appeal. What makes this gown stand out is the hand beaded baroque and Chantilly lace covering her from head to toe. It also boasts the signature double sculpted hem that Élysée is known for.





With its romantic lace straps and flattering curved neckline, this stunning mermaid gown features a Chantilly lace, botanical, and sparkling floral design. We love the lace that perfectly contours the waist and hips, too.





This soft, romantic A-line gown provides an almost Grecian appeal, with its flowy chiffon and ethereal tulle. Charisse features a sparkling lace bodice with delicate floral straps, a high slit, and a low illusion back that features a lace cut-out accent.
