Elie Saab has done it again. The Lebanese designer has snatched up the title of Red Carpet Designer and Couturier of 2012, continuing his success from last year.

But how could he not win a second time, when his enchanting creations are ubiquitous, making a splash at nearly every party, gala, premiere, festival and awards show in the past 12 months. The Cannes Film Festival was major for Elie; so were the Academy Awards. And one of his couture gowns even showed up on the set of ‘Gossip Girl.’

Elie’s magical touch rests in the modern day princess punch he puts into every dazzling ensemble. Flowing fantasy gowns and short sparkling minis are his specialty.

Angelababy, Anna Kendrick, Doutzen Kroes, Jessica Biel, Karolina Kurkova, Kristen Stewart, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift are just some of the superstars and supermodels who went gaga for Elie Saab. Princess Stephanie of Luxembourg even selected Elie Saab Couture for her royal wedding.

Choosing Elie means, almost without exception, snagging a spot on a Best-Dressed list. No wonder he’s Mr. Popular.
