Elie Saab’s work is iconic.
I can’t drool over one of this beautiful, lovingly made gowns without thinking of royalty, grace and poise. I genuinely believe that if Grace Kelly were alive today she would get the vast majority of her event gowns from this outstanding couturier. I don’t think that I can type any longer without gratuitously adding in a photo of one of these stunning dresses
And on an unrelated note, the model looks like Florence Welch if Florence Welch lost an unhealthy amount of weight off her already small frame.
Without trying to be too over the top about these dresses, you can see from first glace that the sequins aren’t just thrown carelessly at this dress, each has a purpose in adding shape to the gown. It’s far too easy to create a sequins dress and make the person you intend on wearing it, look like a busted, broken, aging Vegas showgirl turned escort. Thankfully, Elie knows exactly how to use sequins in a classy, 1940’s kind of way.
I would genuinely sell a Kidney for this dress.
Everything is perfection. I adore the beading work on the bust which is slightly cheeky whilst still keeping the dress very chic. The gown is just so ethereal and beautiful that I can only imagine that anyone who puts on this gown feels like they’re a Disney princess, or a real life one and that makes Elie Saab the perfect designer.
And of course on a final note, I have to mention the glorious Elie Saab gown which perfectly suited the long overdue but beautiful wedding of Gossip Girl’s Chuck and Blair
