Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Love & Mercy’ Berlin Film Festival Premiere

'Love & Mercy' Photocall - 65th Berlinale International Film Festival

Elizabeth Banks attended the ‘Love & Mercy’ photocall and premiere during the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival held at Friedrichstadt-Palast on Sunday (February 8) in Berlin, Germany.

Proving to be quite a worthy ambassador for the Elie Saab brand, the actress did what she does best—blow me away.

Her crimson ombre, voluminous tulle, and lace Fall 2014 couture gown featured a bodice fully embroidered with pearls and sequins. This will definitely find pride of place in her red carpet Hall of Fame.

I actually prefer this gown to her ‘Hunger Games’ London premiere gown. Perhaps because of its quintessential “King of Bling” feel or the way she is working the hell out of the look.

Ruby lips and matching Rauwolf clutch rounded out her look.

It will be hard for anyone, including Elizabeth herself, to top this one. But I hope many will rise to the challenge.

Goya Toledo In Elie Saab Couture – 2015 Goya Awards

Goya Toledo In Elie Saab Couture - 2015 Goya Awards

Goya Toledo attended the 2015 Goya Awards held at Centro de Congresos Principe Felipe on Saturday (February 7) in Madrid, Spain.

There is one thing that is 100% guaranteed and that is Goya will wear an Elie Saab gown to an event, and that run didn’t end on Saturday night.

The Spring 2014 Couture gown was classic Elie Saab: embellished, elegant, bringing an air of grace unrivalled by most.

I love the dramatic nature of the piece, which evoked a brewing storm cloud at the ombre hemline.

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2015 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab - 2015 Grammy Awards

Taylor Swift was a goddess in green at the 2015 Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 8) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Shake It Off’ multiple nominee selected an Elie Saab Spring 2015 shimmering, teal ombre gown with shoulder cutouts.

With a slight, playful nod to the mullet-dress approach, the design received a dose of Grammy-worthy edge by virtue of the sexy short skirt underneath the ball gown that flashed the singer’s enviable pins.

Contrasting the turquoise tones with a pop of unexpected colour, she wore magenta-pink sandals and finished the look with matching green gemstone Lorraine Schwartz earrings.

A red lip would have no place here, so I’m glad she skipped her onetime signature colour for a nude gloss.

Front Row @ Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture

Elie Saab

Elie Saab showcased his Spring 2015 Couture collection in Paris, France, on Wednesday (January 28) with a front row full of celebrities.

Nieves Alvarez: Having walked for Stephane Rolland the day before, the model was off duty, no doubt eyeing up options for the Goya Awards (the Spanish Oscars), which takes place on February 7. She kept her look simple wearing a black Elie Saab jumpsuit spliced with lace panels, which she styled with a gold clutch.

Eugenia Silva: Looking like the odd woman out, the model was the only celeb not to opt for black, standing out by selecting a heavenly minty-green look from Elie Saab’s Resort 2015 collection.

Dita Von Teese: The burlesque star was smouldering in the front row wearing an LBD with sultry lace panels, which was oh-so-very Dita, with signature styling to boot.

Clotilde Courau: No stranger to wearing Elie Saab, the French beauty wore a black Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture frock in a familiar silhouette with oversized beaded detailing. If you are having a mild case of déjà vu, that may be because Julia Roberts’s Emmy dress had the same embellishments.

Even I have to admit that I prefer the all-black looks here. They are so chic and elegant, as an Elie Saab woman should be. Eugenia, while she looked lovely, dressed for the wrong season.
