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!
