If you’ve been following me on Facebook and Pinterest, then you know just how utterly breathless I am with anything Elie Saab. Synonymous with goddess-like gowns layered with bespoke beading and intricate appliqué, Saab did not disappoint Wednesday at the couture shows in Paris. As pastels permeated the high-fashion promenade in of-the-moment materials and striking silhouettes, it was clearly another successful event for the Lebanese-born couturier.
Floral motifs, whimsical lace and dipped-necklines lined the runway in vibrant canary, iced lilac and striking sable. And an ode to ombré introduced chiffon gowns graduated in tone from black-to-violet-to-rose and finishing in a color reminicent of a dusty snow. Breathtaking indeed and truly too beautiful for words. Oh what I wouldn’t do to sit at one of his shows. Perhaps the universe is listening today or perhaps I’m just lucky enough spending a evening wearing a masterpiece.
