{runway inspiration: elie saab, paris}



. . . elie saab never fails to be utterly breathtaking, and when you finally catch your breath, you will scarcely be prepared for the utter beauty of the latest spring couture collection, a flourish of mousseline and sheer décolleté, of tulle and organza, and flowers piled at the shoulder and tied with grosgrain at the waist, and all in glittery, fairytale shades of silver and champagne . . .





{p.s.} more of this collection

I love how Elie Saab's couture collections are always 100% wearable unlike other more fluffy designers (ahem Christian Dior). He is not trying to upstage others and just wants to make the most beautiful and glamorous dresses!
