SAG 2016: Few Hot… and so Many Others Not!

I wonder what is happening to the award season! We are witnessing more bad taste, more bad looks and more people who wanted to make a fashion statement that turned out to be a complete failure. Thank God we still have Sofia Vergara to wow us in her hot pink Vera Wang custom made gown and Helen Mirren to dazzle us with her Jenny Packham silver gown!

From the 2016 SAG awards red carpet, see who’s hot and who is definitely not!

Elie Saab’s Journey to India!

Saree-inspired gowns with a twist wowed the audience at the 2016 Elie Saab Couture Show in Paris. Princesses enchanted the guests in delicately embroidered pieces featuring grayish waistcoats, glittery bustiers, chiffon skirts, thin belts underlining thin waists and tiny wallets that suit the dreamy adventurous lady Saab is dedicating to his collection.

With a stroke of genius, the Master Elie Saab succeeded in merging modernity and traditions, offering us a trip into the Indian jungles and culture. His color palette is composed of powdered shades of beige, silver and grey, with delicate white and a generous touch of blue, the only “explosive” color of the show. The loose pants and the dupatta (India scarf) highlight the Indian inspiration.

SS2016 – Paris Fashion Week: A Sneak Peek into Georges Hobeika’s Gorgeous Couture Collection: A Wind of Flowers and Delicateness

He never ceases to amaze us. As a matter of fact, he is always ahead of our expectations. He is one of our favorite designers and we can’t but be amazed by everything he does.

Georges Hobeika’s SS2016 Couture Collection was unveiled today, January 25, 2016 at the Monnaie de Paris in a glamorous atmosphere accentuated by a glowing audience.

The collection is a burst of beautiful pastels and flowers. It is distinguished with its incredible small details and the finest embroideries on rich fabrics. A bouquet of splendid flowers wrapped around fingers and arms along with the marvelous small clutches bearing the designer’s initials complete the look.

What is bold and daring about this collection is the flats Hobeika opted for instead of high heels for short and mi-length dresses, accentuating the cuteness, softness and delicateness of the collection.

The dresses suit all tastes and heights: petites would love to try the short and mid-length dresses and match them with ballet flats of floral derbies. Taller gals would go for gowns with capes and fluffy long skirts.

We salute Hobeika for this masterpiece and will reveal the whole collection once the official photos are out. Stay tuned!

The King of Elegance and Boldness is Gone

We all remember the glowing Georgina Rizk at the 1971 Miss Universe Pageant, wearing a daring emerald costume which matched the color of her beautiful eyes. The amazing look is still considered one of the few looks which shattered pageant stereotypes worldwide (Girls Who Shattered Pageant Stereotypes).

Thanks to that unforgettable look, Georgina stood out among all contestants and won the title and the crown. Since then, few, I could even say no Miss Lebanon was able to stand out the way Georgina did in her William Khoury masterpiece.
