Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture

Elie Saab’s Spring 2010 Couture presentation took me on a fairytale journey. I was breathless from the first exit to the last.

Elie’s theme for Spring was pretty pastels, which were presented in baby blues, pinks, lavender, beige and mellow yellow.

We saw stunning double layered gowns with mother-of-pearl petal embroidered overlays which were exquisite.

Other gowns billowed in the model-made wind revealing sexy thigh high splits which were double layered with lace adding more allure. Elizabeth Hurley will bring her legs out of retirement for these show stoppers.

The collection wasn’t all about pastel gowns, there were some shorter styles which young Hollywood would love, alongside some voluminous organza floral print ball gowns.

The Spring 2010 Elie Saab woman is sexy, sensual yet innocence. The looks were pretty and so very feminine. I still can’t pick a favourite.

This is a picture I took of the finale gown. My camera didn’t do justice to this gown which twinkled like Tinkerbell as the model walked the reflective runway.

Here’s the finale. Which shows how fabulous these gowns are in motion.

    WOW LOOOOVEEEE IT!!!! I always loved Elie Saab but I think they’ve just become my no 1!

    Absolutely gorgeous. When I see fashion lines like this, I think “Wow, fashion can be innovative, wearable and beautiful all at the same time.” So often, I feel like today’s designers are missing one of the three.

    OMG. This collection is just breathtakingly beautiful! Ooo, now I want to see it on the Oscars Red Carpet. I can see Diane Kruger wearing one. I’d love to see her in it or Natalie Portman; I’d like Keira in it too.

    Just amazing! I’m in love.

    I really don’t get it. He makes these super-boring gowns and all of these celebrities seem to wear them. I miss Lacroix. *sigh*

  8. SarahV January 27, 2010 at 23:23 #

    Princess dresses! I love it 🙂

  9. Anissa January 27, 2010 at 21:08 #

    Wow! I want to see Anne Hathaway in one of the bottom four “Thighs the Limit”! Maybe that blue/aqua one for the Oscars?

    STUNNING!!! I feel dizzy right now… My favourites are pic n°2 and 5
    Oh and he used my favourite song at the moment… I am so jalous this must have been a fantastic show to look at!

    Just the thought of Elie Saab’s creations gives me a glimpse of what fashion heaven looks like. Honestly, there are great designers who innovate and cause such a fashion fuss and then there is Elie Saab, Valentino, Armani….designers who stay true to their aim in making women look as beautiful as they should be. I still remember that post where FC met with Elie Saab really well. Wish I could even breathe the same air as Fashion Maestro Saab….

    Couture is dead.

  17. MEME January 27, 2010 at 18:46 #

    That is my wedding dress………. I don’t care….. hehehe…. between that one and the one in the Spring 2007 collection….

    • Flutterbang January 28, 2010 at 07:49 #

      Gosh I was thinking the same thing. So many of these would make a beautiful wedding dress.

  18. MEME January 27, 2010 at 18:43 #

    Elie Saab is my favorite designer………. I want to marry him just for the dresses……… I faint at his couture collections……….

    • mm January 27, 2010 at 19:04 #

      LOL! I understand what you mean.

  19. Ally January 27, 2010 at 18:38 #

    I literally gasped when the page loaded. Every single one of these pieces belongs on the redcarpet. I just hope the right people get their hands on them first. I can’t pick a favorite, but the aqua blue color of that one gown is breathtaking.

  20. nicole January 27, 2010 at 18:37 #

    so beautiful!! love it

  21. Alfredo January 27, 2010 at 18:21 #

    I’m willing to bet that on Sunday night we see the first of these dresses on the red carpet. I’m just not sure which one(s) Beyonce will go for.

  22. xocoatl January 27, 2010 at 17:47 #

    It really does look like a fairytale!

    • mm January 27, 2010 at 18:22 #

      An exquiste fairytale. Image 2 is my favorite, but really I love them all!

      • mm January 27, 2010 at 18:24 #

        Image 2 of 8 or Pic 2 top row at the bottom. The movement of that gown is so graceful

  23. Dora January 27, 2010 at 17:22 #

    You lucky girl! I wish I was there.
    Elie Saab Couture is LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.
    So jealous.

  24. Bee January 27, 2010 at 17:07 #

    is that michaela kocianova?

  25. Jennifer January 27, 2010 at 17:01 #

    My jaw… on the ground. These are fabulous. So, so jealous that you got to see these FC!

    I can see several of these hopefully out and about for award season!

    Since we both love Cate, I thought I’d tell you that Cate Blanchett was at a make up event in Japan that had a lot of amazing looks there from several Asian actresses and Cate had a very beautiful look on (though, with tights).

    • Fashion Critic January 27, 2010 at 17:05 #

      My jaw is still on the ground. I’ve been dragging it around day since the show 🙂

      Yes I saw her, but waiting for the pics.

      The will be up soon.

      Fab as ever.

      • Jennifer January 27, 2010 at 17:12 #

        Haha great image. My students asked me what was wrong when my jaw dropped. I’ll be oohing and aahing over these throughout today… Huzzah for Elie Saab!
