Another lovely collection, love the black pieces at the beginning esp the gown on Kasia and the finale dress is breathaking, and lovely cocktail dresses too. Im sure we'll be seeing 90% of this on the red carpet.

So stupid. I feel like the workmanship is probably really bad. I think Elie Saab just keeps doing the same thing every season. He makes nice dresses, but there are no differences between dresses from this season and fall 2010. He needs to update and stop doing the same crap.

I feel like his last great collection was Pre-Fall 2012 -- it was more sharp this his usual sugary-sweet collections, like this one.

What is with all the extra fabrics hanging off the dresses: http://postimage.org/image/r9hpt670v/ That looks horrendous.

This is such a beautiful collection,yes it is a bit repetitive but it is still gorgeous
It remindes me a bit of a previous Valentino collection(can't remember what season)the dress Maud is wearing in #21 and the hairstyle.Regardless,it is a breathtaking collection!

I totally agree. So over embellished and over designed, without any good details or work.

But based on the comments in the Dior thread, that seems to be what people associate with Haute Couture these days, as opposed to good workmanship. Sad.
