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
