Haute Couture Week: 10 Wedding-Worthy Gowns At Elie Saab

Elie Saab Couture AW14 1 Haute Couture Week: 10 Wedding Worthy Gowns At Elie Saab %tag

I adore Paris Haute Couture week it not only brings out the most starry front rows but the fashion on display is always so exquisite and as always Elie Saab didn’t disappoint with his showstopping autumn/winter 2014 ‘Palais Des Lumieres’ collection.

I might have my two wedding dress sorted, which I love and can’t wait to wear, but there is still a part of me that would love to be an Elie Saab bride. To wear a beautifully crafted, dramatic gown is the thing of dreams and the finale gown to the AW14 show was a magnificent, divine and beautiful gown. I am not normally a lover of pearlescent white, but this dramatic and regal gown really does demand that it is the brightest of them all and I love it.

Elie Saab always produces delicate masterpieces that are exquisitely embroidered, they shimmer in the light, and each one of these gowns would make for a spectacular wedding. I love the sheer elements to some of the gowns, which of course I am sure you can get lined, I really adore the champagne gold hue it would make for a great alternative to white and ivory, and I love, love, love the short and flirty lace number, wouldn’t that just be perfect for an elopement wedding.

I have to be honest I loved everything about the AW14 collection and I can’t wait to see the gorgeous gowns grace the red carpet, but these 10 beauties definitely deserve a walk down the aisle.

Do you dream of being an Elie Saab bride?

Critics’ Choice TV Awards: Diane Kruger In Elie Saab

Diane Kruger Elie Saab Critics Choice TV Awards: Diane Kruger In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the 4th annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards in California

Wearing: A floral print silk chiffon strapless Elie Saab gown, embroidered with sequins and featuring a structured bodice from the Haute Couture spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with a gold clutch

Verdict: Dark and romantic all at the same time, I love this cinched-in floral Elie Saab dress, it really does exude drama and elegance and is perfect for an award ceremony.

What I love about this look on Diane are the dramatic lines of the silhouette, from the structured straight-across neckline, to the pleated skirt, and the exaggerated hip detail that really does make Diane’s tiny waist look even tinier. 

I am not sure many people could have pulled off this silhouette, but Diane really does look gorgeous, and I love that once again she pulled off a fashion risk.

Maleficent: Elle Fanning Is A Princess In Elie Saab

elle fanning maleficent LA  Maleficent: Elle Fanning Is A Princess In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Actress Elle Fanning

Where: At the World Premiere of Disney’s “Maleficent“, held at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California

Wearing: An off-the-shoulder ice-blue Elie Saab fully embroidered tulle A-line gown with a matching belt from the designer’s spring/summer 2014 Haute Couture collection, teamed with the matching belt, a choker and bracelets

Verdict: I love how both Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning have been inspired by their Maleficent characters during this promo tour and this is another perfect example of a modern princess gown by Elie Saab. Everything from the colour, that ice-blue is gorgeous, to the off-shoulder design and the semi-sheer skirt is just perfection, romantic and elegant.

Elle really does embrace the girlie side of the red carpet, which I adore, and this gown is just exquisite – the detailing in the embroidery is amazing on the close-up piccie, and I really do love this princess A-line silhouette on her, it makes her already tiny waist look even smaller.

Sadly though this isn’t a complete home run for Elle, I do love everything about this look except for that choker, which doesn’t seem to match the modern youthful look of the outfit.

What do you think of Elle’s latest red carpet look?

Godzilla: Elizabeth Olsen In Elie Saab

Elie Saab Elizabeth Olsen Godzilla: Elizabeth Olsen In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Elizabeth Olsen

Where: At the London premiere of ‘Godzilla’ held at Odeon Leicester Square in London

Wearing: A strapless midnight blue embellished Elie Saab gown from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection, featuring a sheer lace skirt and a matching skinny belt, finished off with navy strappy heels and silver drop Piaget earrings

Verdict: My midnight blue love affair isn’t going anywhere fast, I love this hue as a great alternative to black and it really looks great on the red carpet. As always with Elie Saab this gown is romantic, elegant with a touch of sexy, I love the fully embellished bodice paired with a sheer lace skirt, it makes it modern and youthful.

It was the perfect gown for a red carpet event, not only did it swish nicely but with all the embellished detailing it was sure to twinkle with the flash bulbs. I am glad that because of the detailing in the dress that she kept her styling to a minimum, opting for same-colour skinny belt to nip the dress in at the waist, simply two-strap heels and a silver jewels.

Bag Loving: The Elie Saab Satchel

Elie saab bags ss 6 Bag Loving: The Elie Saab Satchel %tagWhen I think of Elie Saab, I think gorgeous gowns, exquisite detailing, and one of my favourite red carpet designers, one think I don’t think about is that they do handbags, and it seems like I have been missing out.

I have really been embracing smaller handbags lately, from my bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff to my dinky Anya Hindmarch Tiny Tim, and I am always on the look out for another little beauty to add to my collection and I just spotted this gorgeous satchel style from Elie Saab with its chain shoulder strap. Everything about this mini bag screams classic elegance and when looking for a new designer bag I want something that will look modern past the current season, it is an investment after all.

These leather satchels designed with a floral palette tone for spring/summer 2014 are gorgeous, I love that even though there are only six styles each one is in a striking classic colourway from emerald-green to jasmine white. If I had to pick a favourite I think it would have to be deep raspberry, not only is the colour pure Barbie perfection but the piping detailing really adds a modern touch to a classic style.

Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab

Oscars Angelina jolie elie saab Oscars 2014: Best Dressed – Angelina Jolie In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Angelina Jolie

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A greige, fully embellished long-sleeved tulle Elie Saab Couture gown featuring a sheer bodice from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with of pale satin champagne Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toe shoes

Verdict: The red carpet really did pick up when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrived, granted they are a gorgeous couple, but I think it was all because of this stunning sexy-yet-elegant Elie Saab Couture gown.

I have to be honest I really thought she would wear black, it would probably be Saint Laurent or Versace, and she would show off a bit of leg – but this Elie Saab was so much better and such a lovely surprise.

For some this look was ageing, maybe it was the ombre metallic hue, but for me it was pure Hollywood glamour – I love everything about this exquisite gown. The only thing I would have changed is her hair – I think having it up would have just finished off this look perfectly.

What are your thoughts about Angie’s embellished gown?

Berlin Film Festival: Diane Kruger In Elie Saab

Diane Kruger Elie Saab Berlin Film Festival: Diane Kruger In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: Attending the ‘The Better Angels’ premiere at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival

Wearing: A white long-sleeve crew-neck Elie Saab gown, featuring a sheer skirt and teamed with a skinny leather belt all from the pre-autumn/winter 2014 collection

Verdict: Normally when writing about Diane Kruger’s red carpet looks I am writing about her effortless styling, the bold prints, or the show-stopping factor of her edgy choice, well a first for me I am gushing over how much I love her minimalist look in this gorgeous Elie Saab gown.

Not only is this look not the norm for Diane it has to be said that this isn’t the usual Elie Saab gown that you see on the red carpet, usually it is embroidered with sparkles, but I love this change of pace with a gown that is both ethereal and sexy, plus it shows that white can be worn on the red carpet without it looking too bridal.

Iif it wasn’t for the long-sleeves I am not sure this look would have had as much impact with me but I love how covering up the top half of the gown balances out the sheer panels of the skirt.

As well as loving the gown, I have to say I love her vibrant red lippy and her hair sweeped to the side – simply chic – I love it!!!

What are your thoughts on Diane’s winter white look?
