Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2013
Elie Saab can always be relied upon for drama, glamour, and sparkle. His Fall 2013 Couture collection included heavy dosages of all three, with an array of full-length gowns in emerald green, navy blue, a deep red, silver, and cream. In past seasons, this house has been praised for gossamer gowns that look and feel lighter than air. But some of the dresses Saab showed Wednesday felt weightier, either because they were cut from thicker fabrics or because they featured intricate decorations. Still, whether sheer or thick, these gowns are undeniably gorgeous and completely covetable.
