Katy Perry In Elie Saab Couture – “The Tempest” LA Premiere

Do you know what?

Demure Katy Perry is steadily growing on me.

I hope kooky Katy comes out to play every now and then, but when I see Katy and her hubby Russell Brand on the red carpet at “The Tempest” LA Premiere I get that they so happy and content that they no longer feel the need to draw attention to themselves.

She was glowing wearing a Elie Saab Couture Spring 2010 Couture gown last night.

The layered lace lilac one-shoulder gown with subtle embellished detailing was paired with a matching clutch and bracelets.

I love how their looks complement each other, as matching looks tend to be a bit cheesy.

She paired the gown with nude peep-toe suede platforms from the Elie Saab Spring 2011 collection.

Definitely a BDOTW contender for me as I don’t think I’ve seen her look so beautiful.

Mila Kunis In Elie Saab – “Black Swan” New York Premiere

Mila Kunis blew me away last night on the red carpet for the “Black Swan” New York Premiere.

Normally I’m turned off by her moody persona on the red carpet, but that attitude works so well in her glorious Elie Saab Spring 2011 gown.

Her rose micro-pleated v-neck cap-sleeve gown was paired with my favourite Louboutin’s of the year, the Maggie heels.

Her gown is so simple, yet she works it so well. She oozes a graceful elegance which every Elie Saab look deserves.

A chic updo and gold jewels completed her look.

Definitely a BDOTW look.

Fan Bing Bing In Elie Saab – Cartier Flagship Store Opening

Fan Bing Bing attended the Cartier Flagship Store Opening in Hong Kong on Saturday.

The beautiful Asian actress looked majestic on the red carpet.

My favourite red carpet star (excluding Cate Blanchett of course) wore my favourite designer – Elie Saab.

With her porcelain skin I would’ve expected this cream Elie Saab Spring 2010 gown to wash her out, but she’s glowing.

The gown was presented as a halter, but to allow Fan Bing Bing to sparkling wearing that stunning Cartier necklace she switched things up and wore her gown slightly off the shoulder.

I think the gown looks much better this way. She really has a knack of taking a look and making it her own.

An elegant updo, a gold satin clutch and a silver Cartier watch completed her look.

Despite not being a fan of watches on the red carpet, this is my first BDOTW contender.

Rihanna In Elie Saab Couture – 2010 American Music Awards Stage

When Rihanna went to collect her award for Best Soul/R&B Female at the 2010 American Music Awards, she looked divine wearing her second Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture gown of the night.

I adore her green draped one sleeve gown with a sexy thigh-high split.

She modified it to make the look her own by wearing the draped detail under her arm.

If I was ever lucky enough to wear such a gown I would’ve worn it the same way.

She was the real surprise of the night. I didn’t expect her to wow me the way she did.

Rihanna In Elie Saab Couture – 2010 American Music Awards

Best Dressed/Most Improved Hair Award
This time Rihanna IS wearing Elie Saab at the 2010 American Music Awards tonight in LA.

You may remember the singer incorrectly name checked the designer at the EMAs when she was actually wearing Marchesa, but on this occasion she wore a gown from Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 Couture collection.

I know I said the same thing for Miley, but this is one of Rihanna’s best ever looks.

Thank god she toned down the hair colour.

This more subtle shade works perfectly with her scarlet gown with subtle floral detailing. The brighter colour would not have worked.

I would’ve expected something more wild and crazy from Rihanna tonight, but I’m not disappointed with her look.

She looked sexy, sophisticated and fearless as always. I’m so happy to see a look from that Couture collection on the red carpet.

BDOTW contender for me.

Christina Aguilera In Elie Saab – “Burlesque” LA Premiere

Christina Aguilera attended the “Burlesque” LA Premiere with her co-star Cher at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater last night.

Christina wore an Elie Saab Fall 2008 gown.

I love the emerald green colour and the modifications on the bodice, but I can’t help but feel slightly let down by Christina.

I really expected her to go all out for this premiere. Guns blazing.

Had her look been too literal in relation to the movie it would’ve come off cheesy, but I would’ve preferred a bit of Xtina on the red carpet last night.

Demure Christina doesn’t quite work for me.

Christian Louboutin Eugenie pumps and Neil Lane jewels completed the look.
