Sweet Spring Couture by Elie Saab

I know that the images from Elie Saab's phenomenal Spring 2012 Couture show will be posted on thousands of other blogs, but I couldn't help myself. It has left a lasting impression on me, with sensational gowns that are only imaginable in your wildest Midsummer's Night Dreams. 

The maven of couture, Saab one again whets our fashion palates with a delectable array of dessert shaded designs, finely crafted with the utmost dexterity and impeccable detailing. Sheerness was a theme throughout, artfully ornamented by crystal floral appliqués and delicate hand beading. I've paired the designs with the sweet treats they remind me of. Enough from me, I'll let the dresses speak for themselves...they do so in volumes.

Sugar Cookies

Peppermint Tart

Bubblegum Milkshake


Candied Ginger

Peach Cobbler

Lemon Meringue 

Strawberry Cheesecake
Anyone else craving something sweet?

But of course I want something sweet now! Not only one of the amaaaaazing dresses, but many!!! The first Sugar Cookie from left to right, the same for the Peppermint Tart; then the first too for the Candied Ginger (fantastic!!!!!) The third Peach Cobbler and the first of Lemon Meringue and Strawberry Cheesecake - by now you know I love these kind of "mini circle skirts"!!!!! Amazing selection as always, I wish I could wear one of the dresses I "chose"... :)
