When Lebanese designer Elie Saab presented his Spring 2012 Couture collection last week in Paris the talk was all about how popular he was with the Hollywood crowd.
“Oscar-Bound Starlets, Rejoice! Elie Saab Does Dreamy Beaded Gowns In Every Color For Spring 2012 Couture” screamed the headline in Glamour.com and concluded “.. Call me crazy but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw every last one of these stunning floor-sweepers on the red carpet come Oscars night.”
An influential celebrity stylist told Style.com: “His dresses are shiny, uncomplicated, and easy to digest.” “…You could dress half the Oscars red carpet with these looks and chances are, someone will. The craftsmanship is as impeccable as always and we’re digging the pastels as a response to way too many black sheer and lace dresses walking the runways and red carpets lately” opined tomandlorenzo.com.
Asmara Design Consultant Alexis McDermott paired Elie Saab’s 2012 Paris haute couture dress with the Anatolia Oushak rug– a coral rug with green and cream accent colors.
