Rome, Paris, Nah Its All About Beirut and Dubai

We had a thought while browsing through the Spring 2009 gowns on display from Elie Saab, why didn't anyone float the Lebanese designer as a possible Valentino successor, moot though the point may now be. Now hear us out, the self trained designer knows how to make a woman look beautiful. His entire career has been based on designing gowns that make an impact. Saab was the first non-Italian designer to become a member of the Italian Camera Nazionale della Moda, not to mention his inclusion his Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture more than qualifies him to take on the more strenuous couture colections. Sure Saab doesn't quite have the Valentino color pallete but how hard is it to change up the fabrics to red huh?

And lord knows that the world's spendiest couture consumers are coming from the Middle East these days. We say what says jet set more than a weekend in Dubai. The new luxury class is very much from these oil rich countries and old line houses might do well to aknowledge that.
