Elie Saab makes the kind of Haute Couture that makes me glad I'm a girl. Ever since I first leafed through a Collezioni Haute Couture as a young fashion student, Elie Saab has always been one of my favourite designers (and therefore gets his own post! Sorry Dior, Armani and Chanel ). His...

Can it really be nearly ten years since Elie Saab caught the world's attention when he dressed Halle Berry for the Oscars? Of course, it was actually Halle who bagged the eyeball time, because Saab let her let it all hang out. My, how times have changed. Sure, there was plenty of décolleté,...

I love Elie Saab. Simple. This collection amazed me, obviously. Tulle, draping, lace, strapless, skirt splits and embellishment were all seen throughout this show, it lacked nothing. The models looked elegant, simple and had neat hairstyles with minimal make-up. I always find minimal make-up...

Wednesday afternoon Elie Saab showed an exquisite collection of red carpet ready creations that truly dazzled. The Paris runway was filled with floor sweeping gowns in a variety of colours that were composed of multiple layers of tulle, sheer lace or chiffon. Dreamy and feminine. A...

After a somewhat spotty record of dealing with dressing her pregnant body during this year's awards season, everyone wondered what Best Actress front-runner and eventual Oscar winner Natalie Portman would wear to this year's 2011 Academy Awards. Would it be a disaster or a total win? Who would...

For Keira Knightley, this meant an impeccable haute couture Elie Saab dress from the designer's Fall 2012 collection—certainly one of the top fashion moments from TIFF so far. The black sheer lace gown (perhaps a nod to the veils she wears as Anna Karenina?) was almost dripping with...

I'm hoping that Julianne Moore steps away from Givenchy and opts for Elie Saab as I think she would do his gowns justice, as would Felicity Jones, she needs a proper princess moment, and don't you think Emma Stone would look a knockout in that top white gown, I love how it combines beadwork,...

It is easy to see why Elie Saab's sumptious creations are a continuous sight on the red carpets of the world. Sticking to a formula he executes so well, Saab turned to skyscrapers for his Autumn/Winter 2011-12 Haute Couture collection. This consisted of straight lines, column dresses, and...

Following on from my previous Paris Couture Fall 2011 Fashion Week posts and the out-of-this-world Givenchy collection last week, I had very high hopes for Mr Saab's latest Haute Couture offering. The ombre palette for the collection was simply stunning, from a pale silvery-blue first look,...
