Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘My Way’ Busan International Festival Premiere

Fan Bingbing donned a second look at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival, for the ‘My Way’ Premiere.

This time she looked regal wearing a blush Elie Saab Spring 2011 Couture gown with a plunging neckline.

She kept the same hairstyle from the opening ceremony, but opted to carry a black clutch with Cartier jewels.

I love the way she almost changes the look of this gown by allowing the cape detail to fall on her shoulders.

Today on Twitter, Simon G said, “I love Fan Bingbing. She’s like the heavy weight champion of couture dressing!!”

I couldn’t agree more.

Princess Beatrice In Elie Saab – Elie Saab Spring 2012 Presentation

Princess Beatrice attended the Elie Saab Spring 2012 show in Paris yesterday – the only show she attended this fashion week.

When I arrived at the show I was told, “Princess is here”, to which I responded, “Fan Bingbing?”.

The person laughed and said, “No, the Princess, Princess Beatrice”.

As you know, I have a very soft spot for Princess B, so I was delighted to see her in the front row at the show wearing a red Elie Saab Resort 2012 dress.

She teamed her dress with black pumps (grrr) and a gold clutch.

Beatrice has worn Elie Saab several times for public and private events, so it’s no wonder she wanted to see the collection up close for herself.

I wonder which looks she will wear in the future.

Here are my picks.

Elie Saab Spring 2012

Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 presentation once again closed fashion week.

The king of red carpet dressing presented a beautiful collection on a surprisingly colourful palette.

The show notes said ‘Color Shock’, so I was a tad confused that the first 10 looks were all beige; however, a rainbow of colours including sunflower yellow, peach, emerald green and a gorgeous Lapis blue soon followed.

Sexy daytime and eveningwear dresses and gowns were presented alongside feminine pantsuits with lace details, wide-legged jumpsuits, blouses paired with loose-fitted pants, tweed jackets and belted skirts.

For the red carpet, stars have many gorgeous gowns to choose from with the theme being ‘Sparkle n’ Plunge’.

I was on the edge of my seat as these embellished belted gowns took to the runway with daring, plunging necklines. You know I have a serious weakness for Elie’s bling.

I simply adored this colourful collection of feminine, sensual looks.

It was the show that provided the most glamour this fashion week and each look has a place at a premiere, photocall, film festival or royal wedding – and, if you’re Dita Von Teese, it would look good on the sidewalk too.

When it comes to chic red carpet looks, no one does it better.

Sonam Kapoor In Elie Saab Couture – Akshay Kumar’s Speedy Singh Bash

Sonam Kapoor attended a dinner hosted by her co-star Akshay Kumar in honour of Camilla Belle who is currently in India to promote her new movie, “Breakaway”.

The Indian beauty wore a beautiful Elie Saab Couture Spring 2012 dress.

Her strapless embroidered dress had a black pencil skirt and a dove grey bodice. A cropped sleeveless jacket with bold shoulders added a chic touch to her look.

Sonam opted for black accessories which included D&G pumps and a signature Bottega Veneta clutch.

This is a beautiful look for Sonam.

It was event-appropriate and, whilst it’s Couture, she didn’t try to upstage the guest of honour.

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 5th Annual ACM Honors

Taylor Swift attended the 5th Annual ACM Honors which were held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee last night.

The country singer wore an Elie Saab Resort 2012 dress.

We shouldn’t be surprised to see Taylor wearing yet another embellished dress, but we shouldn’t be too hard on her for not stepping out of her comfort zone either, as this nude chiffon cocktail dress looks so very cute on her.

She complemented the gold embellishments on her dress with gold sandals, but opted for silver jewels.

A sweeping updo and pink lips completed her look.

Kate Winslet In Elie Saab – 2011 Emmy Awards

Red was a hot colour on the red carpet tonight at the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight.

It didn’t come much hotter than Kate Winslet in Elie Saab.

The British star wore a Resort 2012 red cap-sleeve v-neck cap sleeve gown which does wonders for her gorgeous figure.

A gold clutch and silver jewels accessorized her look.

I love the wavy updo which allows her to showcase her diamond encrusted earrings.

So many stars who wore a red dress opted for a red lip colour, so I’m glad Kate stood out as she opted for coral.

Emily Blunt In Elie Saab Couture – 2011 Emmy Awards

Emily Blunt was one of 3 stars to hit the 2011 Emmy Awards tonight wearing Elie Saab.

The British actress wore a stunning gown from Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 Couture collection.

Her full length tulle midnight blue gown with a plunging neckline is embroidered with sequins and heavenly tulle ruffle details.

A velvet floral appliqué is tied to the waist as she accessorizes her look with a Kelly Locke clutch, Lorraine? Schwartz jewels and Brian Atwood heels.

The look was complete with a chic loose updo.

Pure divinity.
