Elie Saab's feature piece on the Couture catwalk



If you're thinking of including bridesmaids in your wedding, then Elie Saab could solve the dilemma of how to dress them.

The Lebanese designer is an expert in shaping fashion in the bridal world: not only does he form part of an exclusive commercial line in Pronovias created by various designers, he is also responsible for some of the most exquisite bridal creations seen on the Paris Haute Couture catwalks.

It was on this exact catwalk in the Spring Summer 2012 collections, where the 47 yr old designer displayed his creative talent.

He gave life to a purely Saab collection, composed entirely of a palette of pastel colours. A succession of fairytale dresses were paraded down the Parisian catwalk, a cascade of delicious alternatives in tones of cream, lemon, mint, rose and sky-blue.

Tiny, delicate strokes of pink decorated the stunning wedding dress that crowned the catwalk, matching some of the dresses from the collection presented previously.

The final scene was a magnificent composition of pale colours. Dresses showcased proved perfect for any bride looking to dress their bridesmaids to compliment their own gown.

For success: keep the same, simple line in each of the dresses, differentiating the bride with unique tones and different cuts and lengths, and varying details like the neckline or sleeve length.

Models on the Elie Saab catwalk wore such intricate creations that their make-up was kept minimal, yet pretty.

The look was very much fifties inspired, with a flawless complexion, rosy blushed cheeks, and nothing on the eyes but a slick of black liner and false lashes.
