Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

Elie Saab Private Dinner Party #ElieSaabLA

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.

    My best dressed this event was Ellen Pompeo. She wore a gorgeous, sexy white suit. Ashley is my no. 2. Some of these are a snoozefest…

      Ellen is my favorite too!

    Ashley is my fave. That color alone is enough to win it, but then there’s also that perfect styling.

    Ashley is a clear standout, followed by Katherine Waterston for me, looking really lovely in her nice black dress, it fits her perfectly.

    Jamie looks lovely and Emily is exquisite as always.

    I adore Elie Saab, so im shocked I dont like more of these looks from the event. Hailee looks nice, but its really just a boring look. However Ashley knocked it out of the park in that teal outfit. The colour is amazing and the styling is perfect!

    Ashley, Lily and Hailee for me. But they were all well dressed.

    Love Ashley’s eyecatching look, she looks gorgeous.

    I actually think everyone looks great…it’s all simple and chic and proves that Elie Saab has more to offer than just glitzy gowns.
    I especially love Ashley, that looks is fantastic and should be considered for BDOTW

    • Lilla November 14, 2014 at 21:15 #

      I agree on everything. And I also like Lily and Hailee’s looks.

    That’s some fancy funeral. Why are they all wearing black ?

  12. Bec November 14, 2014 at 12:17 #

    I was excited when I saw a post for an Elie Saab dinner but all these looks are so…..underwhelming.

    • olivia November 14, 2014 at 12:19 #

      I couldn’t agree more. I only like Ashley.

      • Christine November 14, 2014 at 12:50 #

        Lol agreed. Although if I have to choose, Ashley is my favorite.

      I know, this feels a lot more like an “Elie Saab for H&M” dinner.
