Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab – 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala

Angelina Jolie supported Brad Pitt as he received the ‘Achievement Award’ at this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala on Saturday evening.

The actress wore a greige Elie Saab Spring-Summer 2011 pleated jumpsuit (similar to the look below) with Jimmy Choo heels.

Angie’s jumpsuit can easily be mistaken for the flowy-gown type she tends to wear, but it’s nice to know there’s some variation to this particular look.

A low, draped back also makes up for the shapeless front.

Her softly tousled hair and neutral makeup look flawless, of course.

Brad was decked out in a Versace Spring 2012 black one-button notch lapel suit paired with a white button-down Versace shirt and a slim black Versace tie.

Red Carpet Designer of 2011 & Couturier of 2011 – Elie Saab

By an overwhelming margin, Elie Saab not only received the most votes for Red Carpet Designer of the Year, but also for Couturier of the Year.

No, I promise you I didn’t rig the votes.

The designer’s magical gowns were showcased at nearly every major event this year including Cannes Film Festival, the Oscars, the Latin Grammys, the Bambi Awards, the Marie Claire Prix de la Moda Awards, the BAFTAs, the Emmy’s and the Golden Globes.

No other designer can boast that kind of reach in 2011.

Elie’s biggest celebrity fan was, of course, Fan Bingbing, but his other loyal fans included Sarah Jessica Parker, Mila Kunis, Hilary Swank, Princess Beatrice, Catherine Zeta Jones, Taylor Swift, Evan Rachel Wood, Abbie Cornish, Emily Blunt, Princess Victoria of Sweden, Florence Welch and, most recently, Sonam Kapoor, Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman.

It’s no wonder his client list is almost as extensive as IMDB, because he creates everything a girl could want – from head-turning gowns, to sequin mini dresses, every girl wants a piece of Elie magic because it pretty much guarantees her a place on Best Dressed lists the world over.

Runner up for Designer of the Year: Alexander McQueen
Runner up Couturier of the Year: Givenchy

Fan Bingbing In Elie Saab Couture – ‘My Way’ Seoul Premiere

If you were surprised that Fan Bingbing didn’t wear Elie Saab to the ‘My Way’ press conference, that’s because she was saving it for the premiere.

The actress donned a fiery, volcanic print Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture one-shoulder gown.

I’m ecstatic to see that this gown has finally taken to the red carpet, as I look at it every day on my screensaver, plus it’s refreshing to see something on the red carpet which is season appropriate.

Fan Bingbing allowed the gown to do all the talking as she swept her hair back into a neat bun, and added Cartier jewels.

The watch should’ve been left at home, but its a minor when a look from your wish list finally comes to life.

Emma Watson In Luisa Beccaria & Elie Saab Couture – Lancôme Dinner & Press Conference

Emma Watson was in Hong Kong today fulfilling her duties for the cosmetic brand Lancôme.

She attended a press conference wearing a summery Luisa Beccaria Spring 2012 dress.

Her event-and weather-appropriate white dress has blue and white floral appliqués on the bodice for an ultra-feminine touch with added frills around the waistband and hemline.

The dress is sweet without being sickly sweet and her light makeup is very complementary.

Silver accessories including Jimmy Choo strappy sandals completed her look.

At the dinner party later in the evening, Emma was easy to spot her Elie Saab Fall 2011 mini dress which is our second look from this collection this week.

Her backless midnight-blue tulle mini dress with an embellished bodice and velvet floral appliqué tied to the waist was amped up with some sexy styling.

Slicked-back hair and a seductive red pout shows how much the young actress continues to grow up before our very eyes on the red carpet.

A simple silver necklace and a ring matching her dress completed her look.
