Born in 1964, Saab was only 18 when he opened his first studio. He did not become internationally recognized, however, until the late 1990s. Ever since that time, the Lebanese designer has been synonymous with elegance and glamour. In fact, many fashion critics credit Saab for transforming the world of fashion. His ready-to-wear lines are known for being innovative while maintaining the same high quality as his Haute Couture. Celebrities who have worn Saab’s designs range from Queen Rania of Jordan to Beyonce. It’s difficult to imagine any international event attended by celebrities and the fashion elite without at least a handful of women showing off Elie Saab’s romantic designs.
My favorite is the one worn by Halle Berry on the far left.
