One of the most awaited, or better said, the most awaited collection of the haute-couture fashion week has arrived. The Lebanese designer Elie Saab who has turned the couture fashion shows into a royal feast for the eyes, has delivered yet again a breath-taking collection all of a piece with his signature alluring style.
Personally, I love the fall collections better than the spring ones because of the heavier, more opulent and royal looks displayed on the runway. Elie Saab has stuck to his successful formula once again – some may say that these gowns are becoming repetitive hence boring, however the designer doesn’t seem to show any interest in changing it. You know why? Because it’s working! I don’t know about you, but I love these collections just as they are. (more…)
With all the hype surrounding the Oscars, I forgot about Elie Saab presenting the new RTW collection. But it’s time to catch up! For the new season, the Lebanese designer chose a darker palette of colors just right for fall: red burgundy dresses, silk jumpsuits, ombre gowns, dark teal blue velvety fabrics and full black sequined gowns built the collection.
I picked my favorite looks, and although the awards season is over, I hope we’ll get to see some of these outfits on the red carpet, at movie premieres, photocalls or dinner events. (more…)
I haven’t been so excited about the Academy Awards in a very long time, but last night they managed to leave me in awe. Angelina, Lupita, Cate, they all looked incredibly beautiful on the red carpet and lived up to my expectations – especially Lupita, whose dress I was longing to see so bad. But first, let’s give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and talk about Angelina Jolie who I am always looking forward to seeing on the red carpet.
Angelina Jolie opted for an unexpected Elie Saab Couture dress which suits her personality so well. The silver color was quite predictible, but I simply love the fact that she chose Elie Saab! I thought she would go with Atelier Versace. Besides, this dress style does suit her very well. Here are some delightful pictures of her on the red carpet – I couldn’t narrow it down to two!
I have to start this list with the one and only Elie Saab!The Lebanese designer’s mind is a deep ocean of imagination and creativity and doesn’t cease to amaze us! This time Elie Saab has put together 48 breath-taking looks that are as dreamy and ethereal as he got us used to see. It’s hard to choose favorite looks ! He always manages to immerse you in the magical world of couture and charming elegance. I can already picture most of these dresses on the red carpet. My only hope is that the stylists will work their magic and get them to the much anticipated Oscars. (more…)
To start the year on a very positive note, we’ll embark on a colorful quest to enjoy the floral motifs that the most beloved designers and fashion houses have prepared for the summer.
The Spring 2014 Collections provide an interesting range of trends, but if there is one that always makes the list is definitely the floral pattern. And how can it not be when it has some much to offer in a summery collection? Whether using printed fabrics or delicate floral appliques, the designers have incorporated at least one floral piece into their collection. Pure femininity and elegance are the exponents of the next summer.
I wish you all a joyful new year filled with colorful moments and happiness!
