I’ve written about it before, but I think Elie Saab makes the prettiest, show stopping dresses for women today, hands down. There are plenty of designers that come close, but to me, Elie Saab is a master at creating silhouettes that are soft and feminine, but still modern, and mixing them with fresh, lush color palettes, and mind boggling detail. I finally got around to looking at the Fall/Winter haute couture collection, and wow. Just wow. All of these gowns would be fit for a princess. They’re show-stopping, truly. Look at the beading, the attention to detail. They’re the definition of regal — dresses fit for royalty. If I were going to the Oscars, you can bet your Governor’s Ball ticket that I would be in Saab.
This is just a small sampling of the 46 gowns that were featured in this show (and I had a really hard time editing it down!). If you have some time, I highly recommend you watch the show. It’s dress making at its finest. Truly inspiring!
