For her Fall 2014 collection, Monique Lhuillier gave her designs a darker edge, describing it as "A bold, dramatic twist."

To achieve that, she incorporated the skull - however, Lhuillier's skulls are so subtle, one would have to be told they were there to spot them. Upon closer look, they can be seen in the embroidery of a gold lace bolero, as well as a lace-and-tulle mini. The skull design was more obvious on a digitally printed neoprene dress. The rendering wasn't great, but the silhouette was.
