Elie Saab hosted an event in LA on Thursday (November 13), finally getting a chance to meet all those ladies who he helps secure best-dressed status whenever they wear his gowns.
Ashley Madekwe: The gorgeous actress was by far my favourite at this event, wearing a teal look from the Spring 2015 collection styled with a cream Elie Saab clutch. It’s a typically chic offering, easy, effortless, tailored to perfection, with plenty of feminine appeal. I’m crushing on her new bangs too. This is a BDOTW contender if ever I saw one.
Lily Collins: The lady of the hour must have been Lily Collins, who had a breathtaking turn on the red carpet a few weeks ago wearing an Elie Saab ombre Couture gown which I’m pretty confident will be top of many BDOTY lists. Going for something less dramatic on this occasion, the actress wore an uber-chic short jumpsuit from the Spring 2015 collection spliced with a lace sleeve and ruffled detail, which she styled with a black Elie Saab bag and Louboutins. No Lily Collins look would be complete without a bold lip.
Hailee Steinfeld: Also opting for the hypnotic teal hue, the young actress wore a simple long-sleeved dress from the Fall 2014 collection with waist-nipping capabilities, which she amped up with an Elie Saab snakeskin-detailed bag from the Elie Saab Poincaré collection plus edgy ankle boots.
Emily Blunt: The British actress wore a black Elie Saab Resort 2015 jumpsuit beautifully decorated with embellishments on the lace bodice. A Rodo clutch and L.K. Bennett shoes accessorized her look, with a chic retro updo providing the finishing touches.
Jena Malone: Ahead of the LA premiere of ‘The Hunger Games’, Jena attended this event wearing a Fall 2014 black sheer-sleeved top with a mock turtleneck paired with black tailored trousers styled with lace Jimmy Choo heels and a Jimmy Choo striped ‘Sweetie’ clutch. Could she be wearing Elie Saab for the LA premiere? We will have to wait and see.
Jaime King: The actress wore a very simple black Elie Saab Spring 2015 dress. I’m perhaps more interested in her Elie Saab bag and Bionda Castana pumps on this occasion.
Katherine Waterston: My new favourite girl wore a black short sleeve structured Elie Saab Pre-Fall dress with sheer detailing. Vying for the Queen of minimalist title, the actress simply styled her look with Elie Saab pointy heels and a bold red lip, which is in total contrast to the neutral look she opted for last week.
Ahna O’Reilly: The actress didnt get the black or teal memo, selecting a blue short sleeve button up top paired with blue tailored shorts from the Elie Saab’s Spring 2014 collection. I adore the colourful coordinated Elie Saab bag from the Poincaré collection. Bionda Castana ‘Dekota’ black heels completed her look. I wish they were yellow.
