Photo Of The Day – Elie Saab, Fan Bing Bing & Me

On my last day of Paris Fashion Week I attended the Elie Saab Spring 2011 presentation.

Just when I thought my day couldn’t get any better I not only met Mr Saab, but the stunning Fan Bing Bing.

It was like looking a perfect porcelain doll. I was totally starstruck.

Mr Saab was such much fun. I had a great time at his party enjoying Lebanese food. He really made me feel like part of the Saab family.

I love how we are all standing in height order in this photo.

    I think the person in the picture who excited me the most was neither Fan Bing Bing or Elie Saab!

    Im a big fan of this blog… Its great to finally associate this blog with a face! :)

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2010 at 22:20 #

      :) you are very kind. Thank you xxxxx

  67. Laveena October 11, 2010 at 21:23 #

    This picture gives me goosebumps, it’s amazing! You are living your dream. First time I saw an Elie Saab fashion show was in July 1999 on FTV, he wasn’t so well known then, but his clothes were so beautiful, that at the end of the show, he received loud cheers and a standing ovation. It’s surreal seeming him with you FC, it’s almost like he honours your admiration for his work, and that is so sweet and touching. :)

    • Fashion Critic October 11, 2010 at 22:20 #

      I get goosebumps every time I look at the picture :)

      Thank you
