Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring 2014
Elie Saab is truly in a class of his own when it comes to gowns. The ‘Saab’ name as become synonymous with red carpets and high class affairs. And really though, can anyone disagree? Season after season, this designer presents dazzlers, stunners and jaw dropping exquisiteness that’s him and him alone. The world is this designer’s oyster, and we are happy to be a part of it all. For his Haute Couture Spring 2014 collection, there’s plenty of high drama and shimmering to go around. We can picture all the starlets lining up right now for the chance to wear one of these works of art.
Colors flow effortlessly together from pale pastels to darker shades of blue, purple and black. Think of many of these gowns as walking gemstones. There’s dazzling ruby, cool aquamarine and piercing onyx, just to name a few. Detailing is immaculate, shapes are flawless and drama is kept at an all-time high in all the right places. With the Academy Awards quickly approaching, don’t be surprised if a few of these pop up on the red carpet come awards night. The soft colors feel retro romantic, harkening back to 1950s Hollywood. As for the darker shades, the high slits and fierceness combine for gowns with sass and flirt. Plus, ombre effects on a few are a surprise change we just love. This is dressmaking perfection.
As for bridal gowns, they’re nothing short of extraordinary. The floral one in particular is like an enchanted princess’ dream…just need Cinderella’ glass slipper. fdmLOVES ELIE SAAB Haute Couture Spring 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa. more pics to come!
