Ellen Pompeo In Elie Saab – 2015 People’s Choice Awards

Ellen Pompeo In Elie Saab - 2014 People’s Choice Awards

Ellen Pompeo attended the 41st Annual People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theatre LA Live on Wednesday (January 7) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a blush-hued Elie Saab Resort 2015 jumpsuit, which despite its hushed tone makes quite a bold statement with intricate allure.

Her one-piece wonder, which draws in romantic mystique thanks to its lace panels, was styled with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies Strass’ pumps and a gold clutch.

The only downside is that the trousers are way to long.

Nicole Kidman In Elie Saab & Salvatore Ferragamo – ‘Paddington’ New York Screening & The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Nicole Kidman In Elie Saab & Salvatore Ferragamo - 'Paddington' New York Screening & The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Nicole Kidman was in New York City yesterday (January 6) promoting her latest movie, ‘Paddington’, starting with a screening held at The Film Society of Lincoln Center before making a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’.

‘Paddington’ New York Screening: After several more playful looks for this promotion she opted for a more conservative look on this occasion, wearing an Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2015 suit featuring a blazer with satin shawl collar and gold clasp accent. I love the studded Saint Laurent pumps with this look. Le Smoking has never looked so good.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: It was black again for Nicole, who wore a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2014 metallic black long-sleeve pleated dress styled with Dolce & Gabbana sexy strappy sandals. Are you having a case of déja vu? That’s because this is the second time Nicole has worn this dress. The first time was back in June for the ‘Grace of Monaco’ Shanghai Film Festival Press Conference. I prefer this look the second time around as I much prefer Nicole’s hair and styling.

23.12.14 Best Of

Designer of the Year & Couturier of the Year 2014 – Elie Saab

Designer of the Year – Elie Saab

It likely comes as no shock that the man responsible for the gown goddesses of the year and who has once again landed your vote for designer and couturier of the year is none other than Elie Saab, with 2014 marking his fourth year to top our Best Of charts.

What is always a delightful surprise, though, is the Lebanese designer’s wonderland of confections that never ceases to sweep us off our feet—this year more than ever with fresh takes on glamour via stunning silhouettes, bold prints, and beautiful colours.

The whimsical fairytale he weaves within his designs made a gown especially magical for the ‘Maleficent’ premiere where Elle Fanning was every bit the princess. The enchantment of his embellishment was also seen with Evan Rachel Wood’s emerald-green number at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party.

But it wasn’t all about the beading this year. Such brilliant numbers as Naomi Watts’ cobalt-blue jumpsuit and the glorious, couture ombre creation, worked to perfection by Lily Collins at the Rome Film Festival, broke the more repetitive rhythm of the glittery gowns.

Indeed King Elie is nothing less than fashion royalty, beloved by red-carpet darlings the world over, and he reigns over the most glamorous of premieres, the glossiest parties and, of course, the unforgettable dazzle of awards season.

Designer of the Year Runner Up: Oscar de la Renta
Couturier of the Year Runner Up: Ralph & Russo

Freida Pinto In Elie Saab Couture – Nobel Peace Prize Concert 2014

Freida Pinto In Elie Saab Couture - Nobel Peace Prize Concert 2014

The Nobel Peace Prize concert took place at the Oslo Spektrum on Thursday (December 11) in Oslo, Norway, hosted by Queen Latifah with Freida Pinto on hand to honour this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winners, Kailash Satyarthi of India and Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan.

Queen Latifah opted to man up wearing a black and white contrast suit, while Freida was the picture of perfection in an Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture gown.

While I had this stunning coral-pink strapless silk crepe gown with embroidered appliqué on my wish list for Amy Adams, it does look gorgeous against Freida’s caramel skin.

Opting not to make use of the gown’s thigh-high slit, the luxurious piece was simply styled with a pair of drop earrings and a collection of chunky bracelets.

Melanie Laurent In Elie Saab Couture – Marrakech International Film Festival Tribute To Viggo Mortensen

Melanie Laurent In Elie Saab Couture - Marrakech International Film Festival Tribute To Viggo Mortensen

Melanie Laurent took to the red carpet yesterday (December 7) for an evening tribute to Viggo Mortensen during the 14th Marrakech International Film Festival in Morocco.

The French beauty looked radiant wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture majestic blue gown that gently fades in colour toward the floor-sweeping hem.

I love her accessories, which included a floral appliqué and embellished chain bag from the same collection, but that braided coil on top of her head takes the look down a few notches.

I will just picture an elegant updo or Veronica Lake wavy do instead.

Rosario Dawson In Elie Saab – ‘Top Five’ New York Premiere

Rosario Dawson In Elie Saab - 'Top Five' New York Premiere

Rosario Dawson attended the ‘Top Five’ New York premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Wednesday (December 3) in New York City.

The actress, whose style can be a bit of a rollercoaster, opted to wear an Elie Saab Spring 2014 black lace and organza sleeveless gown styled with Graziela Gems ear cuffs.

With an equal balance of elegance and romance, I love that she still maintains her feisty personality with the part-shaved hairdo.

This is one of my favourites from Rosario in a long while.
