Wedding Inspiration: The Couture Bride

Elie saab couture Wedding Inspiration: The Couture Bride %tag

I love checking out the couture collections from Paris, as I am always in awe at the craftsmanship that goes into each piece, and I adore that no gown is too big when it comes to couture. Normally for the spring shows I am pairing up beautiful gowns with gorgeous actresses and hoping that they will wear on the Oscars red carpet, this year however being surrounded with wedding magazines getting inspiration for my own gown I thought I would share some couture bride inspiration.

Top of my wishlist, if I won the lottery, would have to be getting a wedding dress designed by Elie Saab, this man is a genius and his spring 2014 collection was another stunning scene of decadent elegance, gown after gown was just beautiful and the bridal moments were stunning.

The final gown above literally took my breath away when I was watching the live-stream, everything from the off-white hue to the exquisite embroidered detailing and voluminous silhouette – simply stunning. Just imagine how magical it would be to wear a dress like this on your wedding day, you could rest assured that no-one would be stealing your spotlight!!!

As well as Elie Saab, the ethereal musical Valentino gown really caught my eye, so it doesn’t scream traditional bridal gown but there is something about that I think would work for a wedding, especially if you have a love of music.

Other gorgeous dresses that I loved included Dior’s simple-yet-modern gown with its textured perforation dot design, the statement peplum gown from Alexis Mabille’s exquisite collection, and the delicate lace embroidered Valentino gown that will never go out of fashion. Also how divine is this heavily embellished white gown by Georges Hobeika – so swoon worthy!!!

As well as the divine, couture weeks also showcases the flamboyant and more out-there of pieces, including some that could work for some very confident brides. How about the showgirl look from Jean Paul Gaultier or how about walking down the aisle in Stéphane Rolland’s white jumpsuit with wings?

If you won the lottery – which Couture bride would you be?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab

margot robbie elie saab Critics Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab %tagWho: The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A black Elie Saab jumpsuit, featuring long black lace sleeves, from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with an Alexander McQueen ‘Panther’ clutch also from the spring/summer 2014 collection

Verdict: I love gowns, especially during award season, but I also love something a little different and the gorgeous Australian actress who wowed me in Gucci at the Golden Globes looked incredible in this elegant Elie Saab jumpsuit.

What I love about Margot, other than the fact you can see that she is new to the industry, which I love, is how effortless she makes every red carpet look. This look is polished and relaxed at the same time and makes her standout – I also love her beach-tousled hair as well.

Basically – Margot is just hot. I think she is fast becoming one of my red carpet crushes.

Are you a fan of a jumpsuit on an award show red carpet?

The Hunger Games: Elizabeth Banks Wows In Elie Saab & Alexander McQueen

So The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has taken on Europe ahead of its November 21 release, and we’ve already seen the stars hit London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid and Rome. For months I have been excited about the red carpet looks, Jennifer Lawrence completely wowed me when she was promoting the first movie in that gorgeous gold lame Prabal Gurung gown. But with Jennifer’s pixie crop, that I am not sure I like, and her constant need to wear Dior, for me the Catching Fire red carpet has all about Elizabeth Banks so far.

The actress who plays the flamboyant Effie in the film has completely blown me away with her red carpet fashion choices – from the gorgeous custom-made Jason Wu gown that she wore to the London premiere to the stunning embellished silver maxi in Berlin and the Alexander McQueen beauties in-between.

My favourite look so far has to be this metallic embellished Elie Saab Haute Couture gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection. Everything about this dress is just perfection. Presented as a bridesmaid dress in the Haute Couture runway show, this gown is stunning – I love the ombre-effect to the embellished detailing and the sexy elegance of the sweetheart neckline. What I also adore is that the look is finished off perfectly with gorgeous drop earrings and wavy hair.

Another great look had to be her Paris premiere gown, a striking Alexander McQueen gown featuring colourful embroidery and beading to the neckline and waist with a feather belt. Not quite as glitzy as the Elie Saab but just as striking – I love the colourful neckline and the feathered detailing around the waist. Simply gorgeous.

What are your thoughts so far on The Hunger Games promo tour – have you been impressed with Elizabeth Bank’s red carpet looks?

Who: Dakota Fanning

Where: At the premiere for her new film, ‘Night Moves’ at the 70th annual Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A midnight blue beaded Elie Saab Haute Couture ballgown featuring a deep v-neck from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Rona Pfeiffer sapphire and diamond ring

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a look from Dakota Fanning over the weekend while she was in Venice promoting her latest flick.

You can’t get more beautiful than an Elie Saab Couture gown, and I love everything about the 19-year-olds look, from the gorgeous colour of the ballgown to her fun additions of the bling ring by Rona Pfeiffer, and I adore that she kept her hair and make-up youthful.

The blonde actress is a real beauty and I love her take on fashion – this looks is dramatic with the plunging neckline, glamorous with the beaded embroidery, and totally age-appropriate with the fun accessories and poker straight hair.

I love this look – are you a fan of Dakota’s Elie Saab gown?

I do love summery colours on the red carpet and this yellow gown looks amazing on Fan Bingbing, I have to be honest I love everything about the look from the embellished bodice to the skinny bow belt to the textured skirt – it really is a Princess gown.

If the dress wasn’t dreamy enough then Fan finishes off her look with the most exquisite jewellery, check out those heart shaped Chopard diamond earrings, an elegant braided up-do and striking orange lips – she really is stunning.

I really do love that Fan really goes for it when she hits the red carpet, I really think more Hollywood starlets should take notes!!!

Where: At the 85th Annual Academy awards held in Los Angeles

Wearing: A black beaded Elie Saab Couture gown featuring lace panels from the spring/summer 2013 haute couture collection, teamed with $1 million worth of diamonds from Harry Winston including diamond earstuds, a diamond cluster brooch and three diamond rings, and a Swarovski clutch

Verdict: As you know I love Elie Saab and I was so pleased to see Sandra Bullock in this gorgeous black beaded and lace beauty. There is an elegance about this cap sleeve design, as well as sexiness with the lace panels that was perfect for not just the Oscars but also The Blind Side actress who looked incredible.

As the dress was so exquisite in its detail I love that Sandra didn’t over-do it with her hair, make-up and accessories, and I completely adore the Harry Winston diamond brooch that was styled in her hair – simply divine.Oscars sandra bullock HW Oscars 2013: Sandra Bullock In Elie Saab Couture %tag[Pics: via Elie Saab/Harry Winston]

BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab

bafta amy adams eliesaab BAFTA Awards: Amy Adams Wearing Elie Saab %tagWho: Amy Adams

Where: At the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards held at the Royal Opera House in London

Wearing: A black lace Elie Saab gown from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2013 collection, featuring Chantilly lace and embroidery to the bodice, back and sleeves, and a thigh-high split to the front, teamed with gold Casadei heels and Fabergé earrings

Verdict: This gorgeous evening gown was pure glamour and stood out on last night’s BAFTA red carpet as one of the most exquisite black dresses and bless Amy she must have been freezing with all that lace on show.

When I first saw this gown on Amy I have to be honest I thought it was a little too sexy for her, she is normally elegant and glamorous, where as this is sex-bomb territory, but you know she pull it off perfectly and I think added the gold platform heels was a great touch.

I also have to give her one of the best hair-dos of the night as well, I love her top knot, a great hairstyle for the snowy conditions, and it allowed her to show off those statement ruby and diamond earrings.

This sexy look was unexpected from Amy – but I love it – do you think she pulls it off?
