The Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture presentation ended my short trip to Paris for Couture Week. I'm always a bit nervous before an Elie Saab show as I ask myself, 'What if I don't like it?' I didn't like it, I loved it. Before I could pick myself up off the floor from Karlie Kloss' stunning...

Who other than Elie Saab to produce a collection where 90% of the looks automatically meet the criteria for best-dressed at the Oscars' red-carpet? Leave it to Saab to create a wardrobe suitable for a princess; the form-fitting silhouettes that scream out feminine glamour and elegance. The...
