Elie Saab F/W 2011 – 2012
Elie Saab’s show this year was in a huge tent set up in the Jardin des Tuileries. As I walked through the ornate gates from Place de la Concord, I could see that the fashion elite had come out for this show. There were paparazzi everywhere snapping photos of well dressed people hurrying into the venue. The show started out with a few nice black pieces comprised of high waisted black pencil skirts and tight little back dresses paired with a skinny patent black belt (this years must have accessory).
This is when the show really started to get exciting, in my opinion. Beautiful, sparkling sequined dresses made their way down the catwalk flowing along the floor behind the model as she walked. A beautiful plum color sparkled in the stage lights followed by cream and black sequined pieces. The sequin dresses were elegant, and sophisticated.
The show continued on with beautiful classic pieces in cream and black. Wool suits paired with little clutch bags were modern with a classic touch. Overall, Elie Saab showed a beautiful collection full of sparkle and elegance.
Celebrities sitting front row at Elie Saab drawing lots of paparazzi attention included, Daisy Lowe, Elodie Navarre and Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing.
