As you know I love Elie Saab. Seeing his designs on the red carpet have kept me captivated for years.
But there was a period where I was a bit bored of what I felt was a repetitive theme, so when the designer presented his Spring 2021 collection, he had me at look one. The king has returned to glory.
Yes, those embellished dresses are present in this collection, so are a lot of other styles which range from modern fairytale, to sartorially chic.
My favourite look above all others was the divine green backless dress which I picked for my girl Kiki Layne. Just imagine her posing on the red carpet looking over her shoulder to showcase this utterly breath-taking design, with the gold chains added an edge.
I was also drooling over the Deepika Padukone jumpsuit, which makes me think I should be adding this colour to my list of favourites.
Sonam Kapoor does very well in tailored pieces, so I can see her owning the look I picked for her.
What are your thoughts on this collection? Do you feel the same as I do, in terms a return to Elie Saab’s best?
