More Elie Saab Spring 2010



This morning I woke up like a kid on Christmas Day, and my gift was to relive the Elie Saab Spring 2010 collection via Style.com.

Yesterday I gave you the video from the show, today the pictures.

As I said yesterday, each look was more spectacular than the previous.

Although I mentioned Beyonce yesterday, I would love to see someone statuesque like Tilda Swinton wearing the long pixelated print fitted gown.

Blake Lively could rock in the short asymmetrical print dress or the nude asymmetrical embellished mini and Thandie Newton in the plunging print mini.

The evening blue and nude gown I see on Penelope Cruz, and if Nicole Kidman could wear something other than what her stylist L’Wren Scott had created I would love to see her wearing the one-shouldered embellished gown.

I hope Rachel Zoe and all the other superstar stylists are selecting for their clients as I type.

Nelly Furtado looked gorgeous wearing a contouring dove grey wool crepe Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress.

Whilst Dita Von Teese looked ultra elegant in the front row wearing a chic black wool crepe fitted Elie Saab Fall 2009 dress, which has been modified from the runway.

    Same here! Can’t wait to see who wears that dress. The pixelated pieces r my favs. I wish I could hold them close and take a good look at them lol

    OH and I wish Dita didn’t modify the dress. She’s been wearing a lot of black lately. But still beautiful & FABULOUS!

    I can hear Rachel Zoe in my head saying “I die” over and over at each look. LOVE the last row. THAT is how you bring back in 80s neons. Diane Kruger would look amazing in so many of these. I’d love to see the last dress on the second row on Kate Winslet.

      I can so hear her too.

      I never thought of Diane, she would be perfect for those nude pieces.

    I feel like crying lol… beautiful pieces.
    I really like the pixelated prints row. I spy some very funky mini dresses.

    1st the collection is beyond gorgeous so am not gonna talk about it.
    i just wanted to ask you fashion critic if you noticed that nelly furtado and dita exchanged their looks (each wore the other’s dress before)

    I have never seen such stunning prints and surface ornamentation in any one collection! Every piece is gorgeous! Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Charlize Theron, Thandie Newton and Rachel Weisz need to wear these dresses. Oh, and Anne Hathway in the red mini :)

    FC, you were so right about this line. I had to pick my jaw off the floor just now.

    • Fashion Critic October 8, 2009 at 15:36 #

      I think my jaw is still in Paris somewhere.

      Oscars, Golden Globes, SAG Awards.

      Please please please.

    Thanks for these pix F.C. – I love the pixelated prints, they are stunning, but overall i just love the simplicity, the draping, the fluidity of this Elie Saab collection, it’s all very body enhancing and light. Compared to this, I find Marchesa over cooked (just referring to one of our reader’s comment that he preferred Marchesa to Saab….but it’s all just personal preferrence, so no offence meant!)

    Many designers opted for something safe and thaditional – for their brand – because of the crisis, but this is just… BREATHTAKING collection.

    Very well done.
