Paris: Not one necessarily known for modesty, Elie Saab has given new dimension to his couture line (which has largely built its name on sexy, star-spangled gowns for the red carpet), with a collection that sacrifices overt sex-appeal for the divinely beautiful and gorgeously feminine. Higher, but sheer, necklines are suggestive yet demure; delicate layers are sweet but still flatteringly body-conscious; embellishments are muted but still luxurious – all of which convey a sense of ethereal seductiveness that is truly Oscar-worthy.
