happily ever after {elie saab}

Elie Saab unveiled his fairytale inspired spring 2012 haute couture collection in Paris yesterday and I fell instantly in love with his light-as-air romantic gowns.  He said of his collection after the show, "I thought about a very modern princess, I thought of the fairy tales which all girls dream of in order to come up with this collection, which I hope you'll like. Concerning colors, I thought of very soft colors but ones that still retained the dazzle I wanted to achieve in this collection."  With the layered tulle full skirts, gorgeous pastels, delicate basket-weaves and impeccable lace accents, Elie Saab has created a textural masterpiece that any princess would be lucky to wear to the ball (aka the Oscars).  Here are some of my favorites, but there was not one I didn't like (maybe it is because I have wedding on the brain and some of these would make amazing wedding dresses, perfect for a girl's happily ever after)!  Do any of these looks (the white one with the long sleeves) bring to mind Sarah Burton's wedding creation for a certain Princess?

  10. I love, love, love the colours!! I think a lot of these dresses would work well for a wedding, it just depends on what type of wedding. My fave is the short beige one, it looks vintage and modern all at the same time.
