It is no question that Elie Saab is one of the most talented designers in the industry. His work is truly inspiring and his vision behind his designs are impeccable. It is my only wish that more of the Lebanese’s work transfers to the red carpet because one cannot deny the intricacy of his designs, especially his gowns. With each season, his collections grow more and more powerful and special. There is always one thing that is consistent in Saab’s designs: romance. What lady wouldn’t want to feel feminine and romantic yet powerful in a gown that displays a woman’s true visage?
Mr. Saab became a huge overnight success when Halle Berry wore his gown to the 2002 Academy Awards where she won Best Actress for “Monster’s Ball”. Thanks to her win, not only did she made herself more prolific, but that night she made the designer someone to look out for. From then on, Elie Saab has become a sought out designer dressing celebrities on major red carpet venues.
