Elie Saab makes the kind of Haute Couture that makes me glad I'm a girl. Ever since I first leafed through a Collezioni Haute Couture as a young fashion student, Elie Saab has always been one of my favourite designers (and therefore gets his own post! Sorry Dior, Armani and Chanel). His delicate, detailed and desirable designs all have that 'princess' factor, which even the most harden androgynous dresser would find near impossible to resist.
The collection shown in Paris this week is no exception. A natural colour palette of blush, moss green, soft grey and lavender was punctuated with red and black. The entire collection was made up of floor sweeping dresses and cocktail dresses - being a skirt/dress addict, this was like catnip to me. I've picked some of my favourite dresses from the Spring 2011 collection, but believe me, I nearly put them all in.
