Monique Lhuillier designs 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.

“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.

Filipino artist wins ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ alternative poster contest

The Insidious: The Last Key art activation campaign that Blumhouse Productions, the powerhouse studio of blockbuster thrillers (The Purge, Get Out, Split) collaborated with the open-source creative platform Talenthouse, has recently ended with Blumhouse’s Jason Blum himself selecting the five winners from participants all over the world.

Among the winning entries is created by Filipino visual artist, Adriann Delmo from Cavite. He is joined in the winners’ circle by artists from Peru, Ecuador, Spain and France.

The five winning pieces of artwork are featured in Insidious: The Last Key’s international marketing campaign and received a cash prize of $2,000 each.

Hailing from Gen. Trias, Cavite, 25-year-old Adriann Delmo is a freelance graphic artist/designer and owner of T-shirt printing business.

“It took me 3 days to create my entry because I really wanted to submit something that fits the contest’s requirements,” shares Delmo.

Because the movie shows the character Dr. Elise Rainier as a child and uncovers some of her history, artists were encouraged to create stylized alternate posters as if the movie were being realized in the 50s, 60s, 70s, “and that became my ultimate concept, to interpret the poster with a vintage feel,” Delmo explains.

Visual artists from around the world were invited to create artwork inspired by the dark, haunting, and mysterious universe of Insidious: The Last Key.

Insidious: The Last Key is the newest installment in the Insidious franchise coming to Philippine cinemas January 17. In the supernatural thriller, which welcomes back franchise standout Lin Shaye as Dr. Elise Rainier, the brilliant parapsychologist faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet: in her own family home.

The film is written by co-creator Leigh Whannell (Saw), who wrote the trilogy and directed Chapter 3; produced by Insidious regulars Jason Blum (The Purge series, Get Out, Split), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and co-creator James Wan (The Conjuring, Furious 7); and directed by series newcomer Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan).

Shaye is joined by the returning Angus Sampson as Tucker and Leigh Whannell as Specs. They welcome to the cast Josh Stewart as Gerald Rainier, Caitlin Gerard as Imogen, Kirk Acevedo as Ted, , Bruce Davison as Christian, Spencer Locke as Melissa, Tessa Ferrer as Audrey, Ava Kolker as Young Elise, Hana Hayes as Elise as a teen, and Marcus Henderson as Detective Whitfield.

Insidious: The Last Key is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
