Elie Saab embraces red-carpet red
- Photos (2)
PARIS) -- Lebanese designer Elie Saab unabashedly celebrated the glitz of the red carpet in a fall-winter 2013 couture show which used the exact mid-red color the A-listers tread.
The first series of sweeping embroidered silk gowns brushed the aptly red-colored catwalk as they filed by, merging with it in a "trompe l'oeil" effect.
It could be said that Saab -- famed for dressing royalty and celebrities for the red carpet -- is finally embracing the color that made his name.
Pearlized hues followed, with delicately cinched waists and glittering with thousands of embroidered sequins -- as is the Saab signature.
Several looks in rarely used jade green were the highest point in the show, cutting a striking image against the red of the runway.
However, a series of gowns in ultramarine were so bold they might be hard for mere mortals to pull off. Perhaps it was a reminder: This show is not for mortals; this is haute couture.
