Elie Saab’s Spring 2011 Couture collection served up pure glamour and plenty of sexy appeal.
Every look was so very delicate and romantic.
I loved the use of Chantilly lace creating a softer delicate femininity to this Couture collection.
The colour palette consisted of tea-rose pink, followed by lilac, raspberry, fern green and stone with some gorgeous print looks with bouquets of wild flowers adorned on the gowns.
Amongst those looks we saw some vintage inspired pieces in black and off-white which need a red carpet moment. I can picture them on someone quite pale like Dita von Teese, Anne Hathaway or Marcia Cross.
What doesn’t translate so well in these pictures are the sparkling details which adorned most of the looks.
The pieces moved from regal to uber sexy, with splits which seemed to be raised even higher from the Spring 2010 collection. I loved the bustier which was sliced open to give it a dramatic plunge.
A lot of the looks had a high waisted silhouette which allows for more of a dramatic flare on the skirt.
We saw more gowns than cocktail dresses, but with the Oscars around the corner we shouldn’t be surprised.
I’m hoping that at least 2 of these looks make it on the red carpet come February 27.
Here is an amazing picture of the finale bride taken by Jessica Michault.
