Sometimes pretty is enough! Eschewing bells, whistles, and shock on the runway, Elie Saab delivers stunningly gorgeous Haute Couture collections time and time again. At Wednesday's Spring 2014 show, this proved once more to be the case with a palette of blue, neutral, red, and black dresses. While the solid hues let the beading and silhouettes do the heavy lifting, there were moments of delight in airy ombré gowns and abstract floral prints.
Perhaps the designer is already looking ahead to the Oscars, as the options were plentiful for nominees. Which brings us back to the topic of shock, as nothing would shock us more than to not see at least one of these dresses (or even capes!) on the Academy Awards red carpet.
