Everyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for a couture gown. I honestly feel there should be more occasions to wear couture, although not to just pop down to the shops for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread – Yes I did this after a wedding once in Dubai. The dress was Cavalli and I looked hysterically funny running down the aisles in my gown and heels on the hunt for a pint of semi-skimmed milk!
Elie Saab’s couture collections always take feminine elegance to new heights and the Fall 2011 show was no exception. Sticking to delicate tones of ivory, bronze and gray, Saab’s gowns were adorned with Swarovski crystals and sequins which truly made the dramatic silhouettes and plunging necklines sparkle. Adding lace-works to the runway in the form of flirty skirts and dresses; the collection contained wearable options to offset the sumptuous glamour. Now I just need more excuses to wear couture!
