Olga Kurylenko In Elie Saab Couture – 2017 Dubai International Film Festival

Following Monday nights Fashion Awards in London, Olga Kurylenko reappeared on the red carpet for the opening night gala of the 14th annual Dubai International Film Festival this evening (December 6).

Personally, it’s been a very stressful two weeks, but what I love about fashion, is moments like this.

Moments where you leave your troubles behind and escape, if only for a few minutes, to take in the hypnotic beauty of a stunning woman in an equally stunning gown.

Olga took my breath away wearing this crimson Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture gown.

As you know I love a cape, but on this occasion I’m glad Olga decided against it.

The cape appears heavy, and I feel it may have weighed down her look.

I adore how she’s totally selling the sensuality and lightness of her lace embroidered look to me.

This is a BDOTW contender for sure. Maybe even a BDOTY worthy look.

Zendaya Coleman In Elie Saab Couture – The London Evening Standard Theatre Awards

Ahead of her mega promo tour for ‘The Greatest Showman’, Zendaya Coleman attended the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards on Sunday (December 3).

The actress took my breath away in this Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture gradient gown which depicts a stormy evening sky.

Those who have grown tired of the “typical” Elie Saab princess gown, will no doubt have their heads turned by the modernity and artful, feminine edge of this piece which makes a very powerful statement.

Letting the gown do all the talking, she opted for a slick back hair do with complimentary bronzed makeup.

This might just be my favourite Elie Saab look this year.

Gwen Stefani In Elie Saab – Westfield London Christmas Lights Switch On

Gwen Stefani performed during the Westfield London Christmas lights switch on yesterday (November 30) in London.

The singer had me all starry-eyed for her Elie Saab Spring 2017 playsuit.

I love how the cape to adds yet more drama and an interesting angle to the look, while the graphic star print brings pops of colour and Bowie-inspired cool slant.

Shu Qi In Elie Saab Couture – 54th Golden Horse Awards Ceremony

Aside from Jessica Chastain, there were plenty more princess moments to be had at the Golden Horse Awards ceremony on Saturday (November 25) in Taipei, Taiwan.

Shu Qi had the ultimate fairy tale moment wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture gown.

Do you feel this ivory colour is washing Shu Qi out?

I don’t believe so.

I think someone with blonde hair would’ve found it hard to pull this colour off, but I adore this look on Shu, especially with the additional lining which allows the embellishments to shine just as brightly as the sheer runway look.

Gwen Stefani In Elie Saab & Celia Kritharioti Couture – Lights The Empire State Building & The Today Show

Gwen Stefani put her own riff on holiday dressing, first lighting the Empire State Building to promote ‘The Holiday Light Show’ on Monday (November 20) in New York City.

The singer eschewed the traditional Christmas colours for a black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2017 dress.

The maxi version from the runway was shortened to a flippy mini, which enhanced the sweetness of the black heart bodice.

The dark colour palette and the sultry accessories prevented the look from becoming costume-y or saccharine. It was fun and flirty, and made me recall her Harajuku period.

Arizona Muse In Elie Saab & Ralph & Russo Couture – Chain Of Hope Gala Ball & Aquazzura x Dinner

Arizona Muse made two captivating entrances over the weekend—first at the Chain Of Hope Gala Ball on Friday (November 17) in London, England then at the Aquazzura x Dinner in Vienna, Austria the next night (November 18).

Chain Of Hope Gala Ball: I will always have a weakness for a good cape, and that was never more true than in the sweeping rendition seen in this Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture design. The effect was altogether regal with a fantasy allure in the wash of the watercolour ombre. Seeing the metal belt on the runway left me wishing she had kept that element, though.
