Evan Rachel Wood In Elie Saab – “Mildred Pierce” New York Premiere

Just when I was having the Monday blues from not having anything really exciting to report this weekend, up pops Evan Rachel Wood.

The blonde actress was in New York City tonight walking the red carpet at the “Mildred Pierce” Premiere.

She opted for a plum Elie Saab dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

The long sleeve jersey with a thigh high split is paired with matching plum peep-toe platforms with a double ankle strap from the same collection.

Her jewels perfectly complement the embellished detail on her hip.

The Gothic princess is perfection in plum with a gorgeous rouge lips completing her look.

Celine Dion In Elie Saab, Armani Privé & Balmain – The Colosseum At Caesars Palace

Last night in Las Vegas Celine Dion performed on the first night of her new show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The singer who ended a five-year run at The Colosseum back in December of 2007, is beginning a three-year residency at the 4,300-seat venue.

She kicked off her first night wearing some stunning Couture and ready-to-wear looks.

Her Elie Saab Spring 2010 Couture strapless gown is heavenly.

The sexy gown with a lace lined thigh-high split has been modified to include embellished details on the bodice to make it the perfect performance look for a diva.

Celine’s other Couture look was an Armani Privé custom gown which closely resembles the Spring 2009 runway gown which was worn by Anne Hathaway during the 2009 Oscars.

Apart from the difference on the bodice, the directions of the paillettes on her gown are vertical whereas they are asymmetrical on the original version. Read More…

Fan Bing Bing & Daisy Lowe In Elie Saab – Elie Saab’s Private Dinner Party

I was really excited to see Fan Bing Bing at Elie Saab’s private dinner party following the Fall 2011 presentation in Paris last week.

My favourite Asian star looked impossibly perfect wearing a lilac Elie Saab Fall 2010 embellished mini dress.

The dress is slightly modified from the runway version as Fan Bing Bing’s dress doesn’t have the cut-out detail at the waist.

It’s not often we see Fan’s legs as we are so used to seeing her in beautiful gowns.

She opted not to wear her now world famous embellished turban. This time she opted for retro marcel waves.

Daisy went in the opposition direction selecting a gorgeous blush Elie Saab gown.

The tulle gown with an embellished bodice was paired with a necklace and she styled her hair into a loose side plait.

If I had the choice of both looks I would’ve picked Daisy gown sans necklace.

It may seem over-the-top for a house party, but it was Mr Saab’s party and given the chance we would’ve all wanted to swish around his home wearing a long flowing ethereal gown.

Daisy was living the dream…well my dream.

Fan Bing Bing & Daisy Lowe Front Row @ Elie Saab Fall 2011

Fan Bing Bing and Daisy Lowe were the front row stars of the Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 presentation yesterday.

Fan swept passed me so elegantly as she made her way to her seat.

Despite the chaos of people trying to find their seats and photographers getting grumpy because the show hadn’t started yet, she was class personified stopping for everyone who wanted to take her photo.

What I noticed first was her turban.

Weather you love or hate her look she’s constantly keeping things interesting by giving us 4 different hairstyles choices this week.

That’s more than Jennifer Aniston and Amanda Bynes have sported in their lifetimes.

I later found out that it was a makeshift turban as the embellished piece was actually part of her Elie Saab Spring 2011 twin set which was paired with her embellished shrug.

Daisy Lowe who much taller than I expected, looked stunning wearing an embellished powder blue Elie Saab Spring 2011 plunging dress. Her look was originally presented as a gown.

Both carried Elie Saab clutches.

Fan Bing Bing glammed up her look by adding gold bracelets and Christian Louboutin ‘Lady Daf’ ankle strap tan pumps.

My girl sure does love a chunky heel.

Mia Wasikowska In Elie Saab Couture – “Jane Eyre” New York Premiere

Mia Wasikowska attended the New York premiere of her new movie, “Jane Eyre” last night.

The actress has worn a lot of black looks on the red carpet recently and that trend continued when she wore this Elie Saab Spring 2011 Couture dress.

If you look hard enough this dress appears to be a shorter modified version of Look 39.

Her black a-line cocktail dress with floral appliqués and sequin embellishment was paired with black Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ peep-toes.

Mia never tends to do much with her hair, but I guess the fact that she was wearing Couture convinced her that it was time to do something different.

It’s a simple updo, but it works perfectly with her as does her natural make-up.

Elie Saab Fall 2011

Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 collection was Parisian chic personified.

For those who say that Elie Saab only creates red carpet gowns, his Fall 2011 collection will prove them wrong.

The designer showcased many daytime pieces which included leather jackets, sheath dresses, pants paired with tunics, streamline coats and knits for the first time.

We saw plenty of slim silhouettes and cinched in waist via peplums and belts which accented dresses, skirt suits, jackets and gowns.

Demi Moore will love the many black pieces which were presented, plus we also saw nude, red, burgundy and stone with touches of florals.

Elie Saab’s celebrity clientèle will be happy to see the array of stunning gowns on display.

Of course I was in love with the embellished gowns, but any of his gowns would light up a red carpet.

Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long, but I’m banking on us seeing many looks during Cannes Film Festival.

Celebs have plenty of gowns choose from; halters, strapless, cap sleeves, bold shoulders, plunging necklines, peplum waists, central split, side split and long sleeved gowns.

Key accessories included Mary Jane-inspired strappy heels and clutches.

Front Row: Fan Bing Bing and Daisy Lowe

Favourites: Embellished cap sleeve gown with peplum and central split and embellished cape paired with blouse and black pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Megan Fox, Florence Welch, Fan Bing Bing, Hilary Swank, Olivia Wilde, Melanie Laurent, Aishwarya Rai, Noomi Rapace, Freida Pinto, Angelina Jolie, Bryce Dallas Howard and Daisy Lowe
