After four weeks of non-stop fashion with awards season wedged in between, my Fall 2012 season ended with the King, Elie Saab.
On a glamorous colour palette of emerald green, gold, black, slate grey and ivory, the designer presented a lot less gowns than we are used to for Fall 2012.
Many of you wanted to see something new, so he kick-started the presentation with Karlie Kloss sporting blunt-cut bangs and wearing a tweed skirt suit with a peplum waist.
Who knew tweed could look so sexy? Apparently Karlie knew.
A succession of power-dressing daywear followed, fitted bi-colour dresses with structural silhouettes, architectural belted wool coats, loose-fitting pants paired with fur coats, fluted skirts, butterfly blouses and jumpsuits, one with sexy cobweb-like panels, the other paired with a very dramatic cape.
Some printed looks followed before the moody turn from glamorous to glitzy with a parade of gorgeous gowns; his speciality.
The emerald-green and the gold gowns really caught my eye, but I wouldn’t be disappointed to see any of them hit the red carpet.
I think Mr Saab should save the long-sleeve slate-grey gown with the thigh-high split for Ms Jolie, and, seeing how breathtaking Katie Holmes looks in Mr Saab’s designs, I’m putting the emerald-green gown on my wish list for her.
If you didn’t watch the show live yesterday, you can catch the replay over at ElieSaab.com.
