Helen Mirren In Elie Saab Couture – 2014 Producers Guild of America Awards

Helen Mirren In Elie Saab Couture - 2014 Producers Guild of America Awards

Dame Helen Mirren joined Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet for the 25th annual Producers Guild of America Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday (January 19) in Beverly Hills, California following her SAG Awards win on Saturday.

If you have been missing a bit of sparkle and magic from the red carpet king this awards season, Helen’s Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture nude gown with embellishment on the sleeves and bodice which cascades onto the skirt should pep you up.

How she consistently looks glamorous and sexy at 68 years old, putting girls half her age to shame, is a secret she needs to bottle and sell.

A Swarovski white satin ‘Nirvana Star’ clutch and Neil Lane jewels accessorized the look, with a hot-pink lip and asymmetrical ‘do rounding out her look.

Margot Robbie In Elie Saab – 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Margot Robbie In Elie Saab - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Margot Robbie took to the red carpet for the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California.

During awards season, we get gown fever, but the Australian actress opted for something different on this occasion, wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2014 black jumpsuit featuring long black lace sleeves which she styled with an Alexander McQueen black clutch and Ileana Makri jewels.

The look is effortless, with a laidback vibe with her tresses blown out and a nude lip colour giving her a flawless finish.

After a slight wobble at the London premiere of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ it appears she’s back to her best.

My only quibble is that I wish the pants were a bit shorter.

Taissa Farmiga In Elie Saab – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Taissa Farmiga In Elie Saab - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Taissa Farmiga emerged on the scene at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday (January 12).

The ‘American Horror Story’ up-and-coming starlet bucked the evening’s penchant for longer gowns, instead opting for a youthful, off-white frock from Elie Saab’s Spring 2014 collection.

The short dress was a charming one, what with its romantic, lacy layers. But the creamy colour nearly blended into her alabaster complexion, creating a bit of a plain, one-note effect.

Stuart Weitzman’s ‘Nudist’ sandals did nothing to bring a much-needed punch of lively colour to the look, nor did her barely-pink lip.

Lupita Nyong’o In Elie Saab Couture – 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Lupita Nyong'o In Elie Saab Couture - 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Having championed Lupita Nyong’o from the very beginning, I was delighted to see the actress keep the good work going from 2013 by kick starting 2014 in fine fashion for the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Sunday (January 4) in Palm Springs, California.

She wore none other than Elie Saab Couture, donning a stunning coral sleeveless dress with gold brocade embellishments from the Fall 2012 collection, opting for a matchy-matchy look with Christian Louboutin ‘Gwynitta’ sandals, a belt and a grand 3/4 sleeve coat from the same collection.

While the coat does give this look a regal air of sophistication, I do prefer Lupita’s look without it, as more of her silky smooth complexion is seen against this breath-taking gold and coral combo.

Cartier jewels and a chocolate lip colour completed her look.

Is she still your one to watch for awards season?

Designer of the Year & Couturier of the Year 2013 – Elie Saab

Designer of the Year Elie Saab

The king of the red carpet is none other than Elie Saab. This is the third year of his ravishing reign atop the Best Of list, scooping up the honour of Designer and Couturier of the Year.

The fashion darling of the celebrity set, the Lebanese designer consistently dazzles with looks that are trendsetting without being try-hard—and that are uncompromisingly beautiful. Nearly every major event, soiree and awards show has his name on it. With his sweeping gowns, deliciously embellished dresses and other magical confections, they are practically fit for royalty.

Indeed, he even created a wedding gown for a princess. Claire Lademacher, now Princess Claire of Luxembourg, walked down the aisle in his haute couture lace stunner in September.

Even then, perhaps the most memorable moment this past year was Elizabeth Banks’ take-your-breath-away entrance at the Berlin premiere of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire;’ a silver delight from the Fall 2013 Couture collection. A close second, of course, was Taylor Swift, who wore a captivating crimson gown from her go-to designer at the 47th annual CMA Awards.

Also caught under the Elie Saab style spell is Fan Bingbing, who might just be his biggest fan, donning the designer a record four times during the Cannes Film Festival. Amy Adams, too, has had her own fair share of fashion victories at the hands of Elie.

With these enchanting entrees, can he ever be removed from his sartorially superior throne?
