Perhaps few will be surprised at the announcement that Elie Saab has snagged the Designer of the Year 2015 award yet again.
The crown has been his for five years now, as this red-carpet magician conjures up pure magic for a never-ending list of red-carpet beauties.
Continuing to send a jaw-dropping variety of looks out for all the style gawkers among us, the Lebanese designer shows no signs of slowing down the movement of his wizardry wand.
And, like 2014 proved, he has plenty more to offer aside from sequins, beading, and shine—an impeccably fitted, red brocade gown – worn by Katrina Kaif – couldn’t have been more strikingly refined without a hint of sparkle or embellishment.
Some of this year’s other highlights from the Lebanese designer include a non-dress, perfect pants moment from Jessica Chastain and Taylor Swift’s gorgeous-in-teal-green, ombre gown that was the most exquisite example of the high-low trend; the fuchsia heels the mere cherry on top.
