Elie Saab Spring 2011

My fashion week season ended this morning at Elie Saab’s Spring 2011 presentation in Paris.

It was (as always) the perfect way to close the season.

My king was influenced by the 70s. Think the glitz and glamour of Studio 54, Bianca Jagger and Diane von Furstenberg.

We saw lots of jerseylious looks. Material not the TV show.

The jersey dresses and jumpsuits were paired alongside elegant floaty gowns and chiffon tunics.

With their soft make-up and cascading waves models stormed the runway wearing everything from chic day wear to sparking jumpsuits, to cute peachy chiffon shorts paired with a dazzling jacket, to cocktail dresses to evening gowns with plunging necklines.

The colour palette was a beautiful mix of pea green, coral, nude, slate grey and a beautiful abstract pastel print.

Of course the bling king embellished a lot of looks, but the models were also decorated in a lot of gold jewels that would make Mr T blush.

I couldn’t help but notice the accessories this season.

Models had gold bangles stacked to the elbow, gold large chokers and gold chains draped around their waists.

Crocodile totes, shoulder bags and clutches with gold hardware were the perfect finishing touches to the elegant looks which complemented the pieces the models were wearing.

Who Wore Elie Saab Better? Emmanuelle Beart or Blake Lively

During the Moscow Film Festival Vogue Russia threw a party attended by many local socialites to celebrate the event.

Emmanuelle Beart attended wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2010 black lace and burgundy tulle panel cocktail dress which she teamed with black accessories.

Blake Lively wore the same dress last week.

The “Gossip Girl” actress teamed her dress with a gold pendent necklace, Louboutin heels and a loose plait when she attended the Tiffany & Co. Introduces Eyewear For Spring 2011 event in New York City.

Emmauelle wins for me as I much prefer how she accessorized her dress.

Tiffany & Co. Introduces Eyewear For Spring 2011 – Blake Lively In Elie Saab


I’m so happy my 2 favourite girls have worn my favourite designer Elie Saab this week.

Cheryl Cole wore a gold Elie Saab dress on Wednesday night and now Blake Lively wears her second Elie Saab Fall 2010 dress this week.

Last night she attended the Tiffany & Co. Introduces Eyewear For Spring 2011 event in New York City wearing an Elie Saab burgundy tulle knee length dress with black lace detail which she paired with Louboutin heels.

Blake does this look justice even though she wore it after the breath-takingly beautiful Emmanuelle Beart.

On her last outing her hair was very blah, but here the Wang plait is just perfect for this look.

10 out of 10. I can’t fault her here.

She’s sexy and alluring without revealing anything.

Does she get a thumbs up from the non-believers?

Who Wore Elie Saab Better? Eva Longoria or Cheryl Cole

As many of you called it yesterday, Eva Longoria was the first to wear the this Elie Saab one shoulder beaded dress from the Spring 2010 collection to the “Robin Hood” Cannes Film Festival after-party back in May.

I’m glad to see that so many of you are paying close attention to my blog 😉

Unlike Cheryl Cole, Eva did go matchy matchy with gold heels and she added gold drop earring too.

I do love Cheryl’s first Elie Saab outing (praying for many more to follow) which she wore to her “Promise: De Grisogono By Cheryl Cole” press launch on Wednesday night.

My heart says Cheryl, but my head says Eva.

Looking at their heels side by side, Eva made the perfect choice so she wins for me.

“Promise: De Grisogono By Cheryl Cole” – Cheryl Cole In Elie Saab

I knew it would be long before we saw Cheryl Cole wearing Elie Saab.

The recently divorce singer – who’s keeping her married name – attended the “Promise: De Grisogono By Cheryl Cole” press launch last night.

The launch for “Promise” was to showcase a new capsule ring collection created by Cheryl Cole and de Grisogono at Nobu London.

The cute Geordie wore an Elie Saab one shoulder beaded dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The nude asymmetrical cocktail dress has a structured shoulder and gold embellished details.

I’m surprised she didn’t go matchy matchy with gold heels. Instead she wore brown suede knotted Louboutin peep-toe heels.

It looks like Ms Cole opted to go back to a longer hairstyle, which I like as much as the shorter do.

As you know I totally in love both Elie Saab and Cheryl Cole, so I need you to confirm that love isn’t blind and this is a BDOTW worthy look.

Loving it from head-to-toe.
