*the last of the couture.

Hi darlings,

Here's the last of my fave shows from Paris Fashion Week held two weeks ago....

...and naturally I saved the most blinged out and glamorous ones for last!

These absolutely breathtaking gowns are the creation of two amazingly talented coutouriers who ironically enough are neither Parisian, but Lebanese.

Any thoughts on who I could mean?

None other than Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad of course!...Kings of couture!

While I have had my eye on Elie Saab's designs for a while [his name becoming almost synonymous with red carpet], Zuhair Murad, who is somewhat of a recent discovery of mine, seems to be doing amazingly detailed work on par with that of Mr. Saab.

So, grab a bowl of popcorn, cosy up with your computer screen and open that savings account...cause I guarantee you'll want AT LEAST one of these jaw-droppers.

Enjoy the pretty kiddies!
Murad's "darkly sensual" embroidered creations.
Saab's "royally opulent gowns"...fashioned after crown jewels; emeralds, sapphires and rubies
...featuring simple, soft silhouettes to pull focus onto the embroidery and bead-work.
Oh and before I forget...

...Elie Saab's showstopping finale piece...
..couture bridal gown with bridesmaids in tow.
See the rest of the collections here. you have something to work towards!

Be inspired! Be productive!
