The Elie Saab Allure at Cannes 2014

Cannes Film Festival 2014
Elie Saab Red Carpet Dresses

It goes without saying that Elie Saab is one of the most favored and admired couturiers in the world and where better to showcase his unprecedented talent than at the Cannes Film Festival. This year, the Lebanese designer dressed a host of supermodels and actresses in some of his finest evening wear from his current and former couture collections.

Alessandra Ambrosio looked stunning in an avocado green silk chiffon draped gown with lace detailed corset and a ribboned belt from Elie Saab's SS11 Couture collection. Coral Chopard jewels complete her look.

Jessica Chastain floated in a lavender blue gossamer silk gown with slitted skirt, a leather belted waist and asymmetrical shoulder with trailing scarf.


Adriana Lima had jaws dropping at the sight of her sultry ivory Elie Saab SS11 couture gown, featuring a draped skirt, ruffled sweetheart strapless neckline and a glittering Chopard diamond necklace and earrings.

Veteren model Eva Herzigova portrayed light and beauty in this wispy lemon chiffon strapless gown with high slit from Elie Saab's Spring 2010 couture collection.

Brazilian model Izabel Goulart was captivating at the Cannes Grisogono Party in a salmon pink Elie Saab SS14 RTW gown with sheer lace long-sleeved bodice and slitted skirt.


Liu Wen was beguiling in an aquamint billowing strapless dress with flower ruffled motif on the bodice and thigh-high slit, which is from Elie Saab's Spring 2010 archive.

Dominican model Arlenis Sosa made an outstanding Cannes debut in this vanilla one-strap lace paneled dress from Saab's Spring 2011 couture range. A dazzling display of Chopard rubies adorn her neck.

Eva Green complimented the red carpet in a ravishing wine shaded chiffon gown with sheer fluttery sleeves, embellished bodice and sweeping skirt. Her dark brunette waves and red lips beautifully enhance this outfit.

Petra Nemcova was a blushing beauty in a dusty rose silk gown with extreme high slit, tulip draped skirt and lace enriched bodice.

Bollywood fashion maven Sonam Kapoor was gloriously dressed in a fluid sky blue silk pleated Elie Saab Spring 2014 gown with geometric neckline, fitted waist and cascading waterfall skirt.

Sonam Kapoor turned heads in this spellbinding black couture gown, swirled with floral beadwork and fitted bodice that blooms into a capacious ballroom skirt. This dramatic art piece is from Elie Saab's Spring 2014 collection.


Which is Your Favourite Elie Saab Look from Cannes 2014 so far?

So gorgeous! Love Alessandra the most! x

Denise Sabs said...

Wow, really amazing dresses, such a great designer for sure! The three first dresses were, for me, the most amazing ones!!!! It's also true that the celebrities/models who were them are stunning as well, it helps! Try to put one of the dresses on me and it would be what Fashion Police presenters say "the dress is wearing her, not the contrary!" But since I will go on dreaming of the dresses, I can appreciate their beauty on real beauties too! Amazing selection as usual, dear Sam!

I agree Sam. Elie Saab's gowns are ethereal. I would love to wear them too. But for now, I am just happy to see the gown worn by the models and Hollywood stars. Eva Green there looks so dramatic in red.
