Nieves Alvarez In Loewe, Burberry Prorsum & Elie Saab – Solo Moda

Nieves Alvarez, who I recently met during Milan Fashion Week, presented her nineteenth Solo Moda show this weekend.

Her first look was a Loewe Spring 2012 striped leather-and-suede blue dress which she styled with hot-pink Elie Saab shoes, to prevent the look from feeling too stuffy.

Look two was her second Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 worn at this show. On this occasion she selected a mustard-and-green tee embellished with aqua stones, which she paired with a beautiful floral peplum skirt.

With so much detail going on in this look, she was wise to tone down the shoe choice, opting for black Jimmy Choo sandals.

My favourite look, not surprisingly, was her Elie Saab Spring 2012 electric-blue sparkling dress. You may remember that Berenice Bejo wore this same dress to the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards earlier this year.

It would’ve been interesting had she worn the pink Elie Saab sandals with this look, but she opted for the blue version to match her dress instead.

Each look this week was styled with Alexis Bittar jewels.

Bella Heathcote In Elie Saab – ‘Killing Them Softly’ Sydney Premiere

Bella Heathcote was back home in Australia for the Sydney premiere of her latest movie ‘Killing Them Softly’ which took place yesterday evening at the Circular Quay.

She wore an Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown.

I love the lace bodice of her printed cap-sleeve gown which was accented with a black-and-gold buckle belt.

The actress is yet to put a foot wrong on the red carpet; in fact, she keeps getting better, so I hope to see more of her on the red carpet.

A complementary Swarovski black-and-gold python ‘Nirvana’ box clutch provided the finishing touches to her look.

Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab – ‘End of Watch’ LA Premiere

Anna Kendrick hit the red carpet at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in California yesterday evening for the premiere of her latest flick ‘End of Watch’.

In a recent interview, Anna stated that Elie Saab was one of her favourite designers. Considering this Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown is her third look by the designer in so many months, we believe her statement to be true.

We are so used to seeing the actress wear cute fit-and-flare mini cocktail dresses that it’s refreshing to see her select this very grown-up black-and-nude jersey gown with a decorated collar necklace.

The styling was kept simple with a copper Rauwolf clutch, light waves and a beautiful nude lip colour providing the finishing touches.

Do you love this simple, clean, sophisticated look, or would you have preferred something more girlie from Anna?

Olga Kurylenko In Elie Saab Couture – ‘To The Wonder’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Olga Kurylenko joined her co-star Rachel McAdams in green for the ‘To The Wonder’ premiere during the Toronto Film Festival last night.

In another style snap moment with Rachel, Olga also chose to wear Lebanese designer Elie Saab. This dress is from his Fall 2012 Couture collection.

Where Rachel’s dress was low-key, however, Olga’s has the wow factor.

Everything about this piece looks beautiful on her, from the colour and beading to the plunging neckline and cinched waist. The gold box clutch works well too.

Forties curls, natural make-up and black pumps finish her look.

Rachel McAdams In Elie Saab – ‘To The Wonder’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Rachel McAdams was a vision in green at last night’s ‘To The Wonder’ premiere during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival.

The actress chose a floor-length Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown for the event.

There is something so beautiful about this verdant shade – and it matches Rachel’s eyes and skin tone perfectly.

The soft updo is the right choice, given the high neckline, and I really like how the bare arm balances the long sleeve and pleated bodice.

What do you think?

Naomi Watts In Elie Saab – ‘The Impossible’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Believe it or not, but I have been trying to get the BDOTW poll up since Friday. Every time I start working on it, another gorgeous gown hits the red carpet in Venice or Toronto.

This time it was Naomi Watts who halts proceedings wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Resort 2013 gown to the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Impossible’.

As we know blush and nude have been Naomi favourite red carpet colours of late, so this lavender gown is a breath of fresh air.

The dress, like all Elie dresses, fits like a glove.

I love the daring plunging neckline and the double pleated detail on the waist plus I’m grateful she kept the belt.

Gold accessories, a slick back ‘do and gorgeous smile completes this look, which sees the actress take a large step out of her comfort zone….finally.

Despite one hiccup, Mr Saab is having an amazing week.
