Elie Saab Haute Couture fall/winter 2009

The Elie Saab show in Paris consisted of 46 ethereal white looks, with gathering and appliqués that made models look as if they were floating in a cumulus cloud. The different hues of white included ivory, seashell, cream, and magnolia.
The collection was exquisite, romantic, fresh and perfectly executed.
Jumpsuits, 2 piece suits, feathered jackets were all seen parading down the runway.
Mini-skirts were worn bare or with white leggings, gowns were seen in a huge variety, such as strapless, asymmetrical, sleeved, one-sleeved, cut-out at the back, bejeweled, feathered, beaded, paillettes, embellished with rosettes, and tulle.
The bold shoulder trend that was very much present in the fall/winter 2009 collections is definitely still in play during this Couture season, Saab showed us padded, feathered, embellished and large shoulders on vast pieces.
The models looked very fresh faced, with clean make-up and a strip of pale blue in the middle of their faces.
