How can I even begin to talk about Elie Saab...
Elie Saab's gowns and mini dresses are definitely one of my favorites, especially because they always look so feminine yet structured, flowing yet fitted.
I cannot take my eyes off the new s/s collection- from the pastel tones to the fabric of the dresses (with occasional shoulder pads to add some edge to the otherwise goddess-worthy dresses,) everything speaks perfection. Hands down, one of the best Elie Saab collections I have ever seen.
Here are my top picks!
Can you see the sparkling top peeking through the slightly cropped, shoulder padded blazer? The trousers make this look complete with a chic touch of sophistication. Perfect for a work event! And just look at the color...
The collection generally consisted of looks that had a light blue/cream color to them, but there were a number of outfits in this Popsicle-orange color that makes the looks SO magical for the s/s season!
Another one of the creamy peach color looks. One shoulder on steroids! The shoulder that wraps around the mid-arm on the other side...and the twists of the fabric around the torso that is complete with a flowing slit down the thigh! Shall I saw more?
There were also a number of dresses in this pattern: a mix of pastels creating the perfect summery feel. This dress is my favorite - the halter jeweled neck and gold bangles were meant for each other!
A sequined number from top to bottom- completed with my favorite detail: the flowy one shoulder! The slit is slightly dangerous, but tres tres chic!
Ohhh......I have just died and gone to heaven!
I don't have to add additional captions for this one.
Very ethereal. Heart!
One of my favorite long gowns from the entire collection!
And there was the grand finale...

Overall, I think I've said enough about this year's s/s collection for Elie Saab. No wonder she's one of the most sought after designers for the runway- she makes the female body look impeccable! I end with a slightly depressing note that, if I had had the financial to do so, this collection would be sitting in my closet right now- and I would be happy for a very very long time.
