Eli Saab Spring 09 Haute Couture, presented on the last day of Haute Couture Fashion week which was of course, yesterday the 28th, was to me one of my favorite collections this HC season.
Eli Saab always amazes me in Couture.The gowns were the epitome of high class and sophistication. Capturing the essence of femininity, they were made of chiffon, silk, and plenty of embellishments.
This collection was created all in pastel tones, which I love. It evoked a feeling of something quite dreamy and angelic. The details were impeccable. Gowns had floral appliqués, and sparkling embellishments, which were not over the top.
Ruffles, exaggerated hips, pouffy shoulders,tiers, and obi belts all helped create some outstanding red carpet gowns and dresses.
In the front row, there was the always chic and sophisticated Dita Von Teese. Dressed in all black Elie Saab fall 2008 , which was a jacket with large rosette details on the collar and cuffs, a pencil skirt, Christian Louboutin pumps, and a large bag, which was also detailed with rosettes.
Mischa Barton and Kanye West were also in the front row. Mischa was wearing a sparkling one-sleeved navy Elie Saab fall 2008 cocktail dress, with Cristian Louboutin's. WELL, she arrived in Louboutin's, but left the show in black Haute Couture 2009 Elie Saab heels which were in the actual show. She must have gotten them for free. Luckyyyyyy
