Rose Byrne In Elie Saab Couture – 2012 SAG Awards

Kudos to Rose Byrne for doing something totally different on the red carpet at the 2012 SAG Awards tonight.

The ‘Bridesmaids’ actress looked truly sensational wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2009 Couture jumpsuit.

Her fully embroidered white jumpsuit with structured shoulders also had a plunging neckline and a waistband.

I don’t think many other actresses would’ve opted for such a bold look, but Rose pulls it off with great aplomb and she styled it perfectly.

Jimmy Choo ‘Vibe’ sandals, a black-and-gold Lena Erziak clutch and a super-cute fringed bob completed her look.

Front Row @ Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture

Bérénice Bejo: The Oscar-nominated actress took her front-row seat at Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 Couture show yesterday following a succession of red carpet appearances wearing the designer’s threads. On this occasion she wore a raspberry fitted Resort 2012 dress with a ruffled detail on the hip and a plunging neckline. She accessorized with a matching clutch and black YSL sandals. As an Oscar nominee and considering her front-row appearance, I think it’s safe to say that she’s most definitely going to be wearing Elie Saab on February 26.

Olga Kurylenko: The Ukrainian actress donned a vibrant yellow Elie Saab Spring 2012 dress with lace panels on the front. Like the runway model she also paired her dress with matching sandals.

Sonam Kapoor: I have featured the Indian actress many times since Cannes Film Festival and I’m more entranced with her with every look. She has worn a variety of designers, but on this occasion she proudly represented her heritage wearing a traditional sari by Deepti Pruthi. This look was paired with an Elie Saab lace shrug and bejewelled flats. When she swept into the venue, everyone near me was whispering, “Who’s that?” I told those sitting near me that she’s the “Angelina Jolie of India”. I’m not entirely sure if that is true, but she did command your attention much like Ms Jolie. I know I always say this, but she is even more beautiful in the flesh. She is also surprisingly tall, as most celebrities I meet are shorter than expected.

Elie Saab Spring 2012 Couture

Dear Mr. Saab, I am running out of superlatives to express how much I admire your work.

Yesterday the red carpet maestro sprinkled his no doubt bejewelled wand to create yet another amazing Couture collection for Spring 2012.

The front row was double booked as everyone wanted to see which looks celebrities stylists will be fighting over for their clients this awards season.

Apart from the embellished gowns and mini dresses which came in many beautiful forms, I loved the selection of floral pieces.

Mr Saab doesn’t often do prints, so this was particularly exciting for me.

I noticed some mini trends during this collection, such as capes draped over the models’ shoulders creating a train on the gowns, and voluminous skirts which gave the looks a strong silhouette like the white gown above.

On a colour palette of pink, mint green, sky blue, lemon, ice white and coral, nearly every look was embroidered with tulle flowers or delicate lace petals.

The contemporary majestic bride glowing with hints of pink closed the show.

Usually you have to put a gun to my head to pick a favourite, but these two gowns did it for me.

The first floral print gown would look amazing on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. I can picture Fan Bingbing and even the petite Sarah Jessica Parker in this gown.

I’m praying to see the second gown on the red carpet. This my pick for Hilary Swank.

Front Row: Sonam Kapoor, Berenice Bejo and Olga Kurylenko

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Angelina Jolie, Emmy Rossum, Mila Kunis, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Olsen, Sonam Kapoor, Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Lane, Shailene Woodley, Jane Fonda, Felicity Jones, Penelope Cruz, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Anne Hathaway, Tilda Swinton, Kery Washington, Katy Perry, Keira Knightley, Hilary Swank, Catherine Zeta Jones and Cate Blanchett

The King & I – My Night At The 2012 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala In Elie Saab

Cameron Silver from Decades Inc. invited me to the 2012 Art of Elysium’s 5th Annual Heaven Gala which took place at Union Station in LA on Saturday evening.

The Art of Elysium is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of critically ill children through the arts.

I was honoured to wear an Elie Saab Spring 2011 look thanks to laChambre.

The look consisted of a blush embellished draped top paired with satin oversized blush pants.

Before you say it, yes the pants are way long, but I had rolled them up as high as I could and I wore my highest Louboutins.

Now I know the dilemma some celebs must face when they want to wear something so badly, but don’t want to ruin the look by altering it. The pants did look awesome in motion.

I tied my hair back into a loose bun and carried a Rafe New York clutch which I had purchased in Nordstrom the day before.

Berenice Bejo In Elie Saab – BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party

Berenice Bejo returned to the red carpet for the BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party in LA on Saturday afternoon.

Wearing her second Elie Saab look of the week, Berenice chose a modest cream dress with pleated detailing and matching belt from the Fall 2011 collection.

The look was teamed with yet another Jimmy Choo ‘Private’ heels, this time in nude, plus a gold necklace and a fun Prada cabochon & rhinestone Raso clutch.

Has Elie Saab found a new favourite starlet?

Should Fan Bingbing be worried?
