Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 presentation once again closed fashion week.
The king of red carpet dressing presented a beautiful collection on a surprisingly colourful palette.
The show notes said ‘Color Shock’, so I was a tad confused that the first 10 looks were all beige; however, a rainbow of colours including sunflower yellow, peach, emerald green and a gorgeous Lapis blue soon followed.
Sexy daytime and eveningwear dresses and gowns were presented alongside feminine pantsuits with lace details, wide-legged jumpsuits, blouses paired with loose-fitted pants, tweed jackets and belted skirts.
For the red carpet, stars have many gorgeous gowns to choose from with the theme being ‘Sparkle n’ Plunge’.
I was on the edge of my seat as these embellished belted gowns took to the runway with daring, plunging necklines. You know I have a serious weakness for Elie’s bling.
I simply adored this colourful collection of feminine, sensual looks.
It was the show that provided the most glamour this fashion week and each look has a place at a premiere, photocall, film festival or royal wedding – and, if you’re Dita Von Teese, it would look good on the sidewalk too.
When it comes to chic red carpet looks, no one does it better.
Key accessories included a range of leather and croc shoulder bags, minaudières and totes, plus colourful strappy sandals.
