He had me at Look 1.
Elie Saab’s Spring 2010 collection is by far the best show I have seen this fashion week.
As one look passed me by before I could say “Oh my…” the next one was even more spectacular.
In the Escape Ephémère where the presentation was held, the room was completely black from the walls, to the seats to the black sand which covered the runway.
This allowed the embellished looks to really dazzle on the runway.
Yes the King of Bling is back.
Beyonce Knowles will be drooling over these embellished gowns and cocktail dress that I saw on the runway.
Shoulders, backs, asymmetrical straps, hip pockets all got the embellished treatment which looked like gold and bronzed stones.
The collection wasn’t all about bling.
A few looks were presented with a stunning print which was like a pixelated view of a starry night.
Other looks using a soft beige, sunset reds, evening blues and deep midnight black colour palette were draped, structured, high-waisted, cut-out, asymmetrical, plunging, backless, accented with long gold necklaces, paired with black or nude sexy leather strappy sandals and model carried a stunning Elie Saab clutch.
I know I always say this but I can’t wait to see this collection on the red carpet.
Nelly Furtado and Dita von Teese were in the front row. Will they be the first?
We will have to wait and see.
I promise to invest in a better camera next season.
