It was supposed to be another star-studded Spring-Summer show for Elie Saab in Paris yesterday. Except this fashionable affair was unlike any other in the designer’s history! As each model strutted down the catwalk, a story about Beirut’s golden age was reflected from the dress she wore; stories about the city that never slept, endless parties, eternal beauty and youth, and a personal reverie of Saab‘s mother wearing a tulip print dress.
This is Elie Saab in all his glory; exploring new patterns and colors, introducing feathers to his collections, reviving low heeled satin sandals, putting on an elaborate show- as if from a fairytale, and ultimately, paying homage to his Beirut!
Now, let the pictures do the rest of the talking..

I never find the right words to describe Elie Saab’s collections. This is not because I cannot express myself, but because it’s hard to find new synonyms for the words “perfect”, “flawless”, “stunning”, “amazing”, and the list goes on. His collections are always the talk of the town- and I’m not only referring to Beirut here. From the breath-taking gowns to the models, their hair and makeup, every detail is given special attention.
The Haute Couture Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 show 2 days ago was no different; Saab showed another flawless collection for the upcoming Fall season in Paris consisting of dark tones mostly. The designer kicked off the show with several dark burgundy gowns and gradually moved on to blues and emerald .
Grey and ivory also made an appearance, along with light pinks and some very attractive earth tones. As usual, the Saab sealed the designs with his signature intricate embroidery and belted defined waists.
When it was time to show the bridal gown, 3 models walked behind the bride delicately holding her grand veil and brought the captivating show to a close.
I can’t wait to see several of these designs on Hollywood’s red carpets! Can you?!

With the likes of Dita Von Teese sitting front row, famed Lebanese designer, Elie Saab presented his Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture fashion show in Paris yesterday. The elite crowd welcomed Saab’s feminine and fairytale creations as pastel colors dominated the collection.
Fitted high waisted and belted designs (now a staple of the fashion house) with flowing tule skirts were shown in ivory, pink, light blue, and golden beige. The models floated down the runway in fully embellished gowns reminiscent of Disney princesses. Red, white, and black also made a statement at the show, with Saab showcasing a red caped dress very similar to the white Tom Ford gown Gwyneth Paltrow wore to last year’s Oscars.
The glamorous affair was broadcast live on eliesaab.com and attracted worldwide live social media coverage from the glossiest magazines including Vogue, Glamour, and Elle. Online activity hit a high note towards the end of the show as a model wearing a stunning strapless couture bridal gown hit the catwalk, sending the crowd into a standing ovation.
With award season in full swing, here’s hoping we get to see some stars in one or more of these red carpet worthy creations!
