Trully Heaven on Earth

This time, Elie Saab's Spring 2010 Couture Collection was the one to take my breath away. I know, this collection was first showed earlier this year, but I happened to come across it just a little while ago, and so...! Here we go! Prepare your eyes for a total Delicacy Party!

For this collection, Herr Saab decided to go for the pale, romantic flower-girl look; (something I highly appreciated) and gave us gorgeous flowy gowns made of fabric that seem to be formed out of the most beautiful, pure spring flowers ; w ;
Now, what I liked the most is the fact that he didn't choose the easy way out and give us, simply, the usual pastels, such as the softest pink, light-blue and green. No! Herr Saab went a dobby step further and chose to go for some rich mauves, celadons and pleasing shades of beige so light the overall look is really natural and delicate. I love how he also went for a trully soft make up pallete, leaving the look even more feminine and eye pleasing.

Ok, sure, some people may say these are all a bit tacky and prom-like (a filthy rich kid's prom, please) and whatnot, but please! I'm sure we all agree there's nothing wrong with some flowy soft romantic gowns every once in a while, yes? Please? I think you should all know how much I praise these kinds of girlie flower looks no matter what ; n ; so...

Also, extra points for the beautiful cristal-looking scenario chosen for this particular collection. It made the dresses trully glow with magic... and the runway looked like a pure river from a dreamy fairy tale!

Oh! Also, another plus! Did any of you get the same "Alphonse Mucha vibe" from this collection? No? Sweet pastel gowns against a soft pale skin and shiny, curly hair? Gracefully flowing dresses exuding a delicious spring-summer scent? Godess-looking girls? Anyone?! (I'm being dead serious right now, so, please, agree with me on this one * ^ *)
Well, at least I still think any of these gowns would make a BEAUTIFUL editorial picture, and an even more GORGEOUS painting anytime!


Agree? Good! I can leave in peace now, for my work here is done!
Take care, everybody! Have a lovely day!
Peet, all!
