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.

Hilary Swank In Elie Saab Couture – 2014 Outfest Legacy Awards

Hilary Swank In Elie Saab Couture - 2014 Outfest Legacy Awards

Hilary Swank was back on the red carpet for the 2014 Outfest Legacy Awards held at Vibiana on Wednesday (November 12) in Los Angeles, California.

After taking a risk which didn’t quite pay off for me the night before, the actress wore another Couture look, this time from Elie Saab’s Fall 2014 collection.

Hilary styled her long-sleeved jacquard ombre flared frock with gold accessories, adding ruby jewels to complement the red sequin embellishments on her dress.

The dress exudes feminine chic and is classic in design, yet it doesn’t have me screaming BDOTW-worthy.

Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ London Premiere

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" - World Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

Elizabeth Banks attended ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′ premiere held at Odeon Leicester Square this evening (November 10).

My expectations were high, but even I wasn’t fully prepared for the extent to which I was swept away by this breathtaking Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture gown.

Enchanting her way down the red carpet, Elizabeth’s floral-print frock with a stormy-print skirt which is delicately accented with embellishments is a truly magical gown.

It’s a long way to go on this tour, but I already feel this will be my favourite.

Ana Beatriz Barros In Elie Saab – Elle Style Awards 2014

Ana Beatriz Barros In Elie Saab - Elle Style Awards 2014

Ana Beatriz Barros attended the Elle Style Awards 2014 party held at the Italian Embassy on Thursday (October 23) in Madrid, Spain.

The model looked beautiful and statuesque wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 burgundy gown with an open back and sheer panels in the skirt.

I love the beaded neckline, which enhances the look. The taupe suede clutch is less enamouring, yet it takes nothing away from the look.

A simple updo with face-framing tendrils provided the finishing touch.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

Best Dressed Of The Week - Lily Collins In Elie Saab Couture & Eddie Redmayne In Gucci

If BDOTW was a race this week, Lily Collins lapped the other contestants several times taking 55% of the votes.

It appears that you were just as blown away as I was by her stunning Eli Saab Couture ombre gown, which I’m certain will now appear on many BDOTY lists.

For the fellas, Eddie Redmayne had only a 1% lead over fellow Gucci-clad actor Ryan Reynolds.

I picked Eddie as I preferred the white shirt and pocket square breaking up the look, plus the luxe velvet fabric and impeccable tailoring. I’m sure this may have been a factor in your decision-making process too.

Felicity Jones In Elie Saab – ‘The Theory Of Everything’ New York Premiere

Felicity Jones In Elie Saab - 'The Theory Of Everything' New York Premiere

Felicity Jones attended ‘The Theory Of Everything’ New York Premiere held at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday (October 20) in New York City.

The actress looked very graceful wearing an Elie Saab Resort 2015 long-sleeved gown spliced with lace detailing styled with Ana Khouri black gold and white diamond Hematite earrings.

While I feel like the look is missing something – a statement ring; a rouge-coloured lip, perhaps – I’m still totally charmed by this effortless look.
