>> Elie Saab says his Fall 2011 couture collection — red carpet-ready, as always — was inspired by skyscrapers, but stylist Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, who has worked with Saab for three collections, laid it out in layman's terms: "We wanted to explore the fragility of femininity. These dresses have a diaphanous fairy like feel to them but remain empowering. It's always a challenge to relate Elie's inspirations and themes to his couture customers but he remains mindful of this at all times." The collection, filled entirely with dresses — most of which reached the floor — was presented in a kind of ombre formation, each section exiting by color: first aquamarine, then white, blush, mauve, bronze, and finally, navy, before the couture bride brought it back to white.
