Elie Saab's stunning red carpet-ready gowns

Elie Saab wowed the fash pack in Paris with a collection boasting his signature va-va-voom silhouettes and intricate designs adorned with thousands of crystals and sequins.

The Lebanese-born designer, who is known as the king of the red carpet thanks to his impressive celebrity clientele, combined a garden theme with boudoir details to create silky, lingerie-inspired gowns in floral prints and delicate lace.

The colour palette was typical Elie Saab – nudes, blacks and blush pinks – but he ramped up the glamour factor with reds and emerald greens.
