Going Vogue. Living Vogue. Being Vogue.

As a 16 year old living outside of Washington, D.C., I am eager to express myself in a world of emerging fashion and conservative style. “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

Elie Saab Couture Fall 2012

This was without a doubt my favorite couture collection of the seasons–I simply love every garmet that came down the runway. I can’t get over how intricate and delicate each and every garmet is. The gowns were all Turkish-inspired garmets that were intricately embroidered and heavily beaded, yet they all still managed to look as light as air when they came down the runway. All of the looks were high glamor as Saab said that he focused on “onfusing the collection with imperial splendor”. The almost ephemeral quality of many of these dresses came from their materials: sheer fabrics, which adorned rich embellishments, such as Ottoman Empire motifs and fabric treatments that looked like gold leaf from afar. But Saab brought the collection back down to the ground with dresses in solid fabrics, too, which he decorated with the same expert hand he applied to the other breezy fabrics that floated down the runway.

Stars flooded the Staples Center this afternoon, and I must admit, the fashion was a little disappointing. Nevertheless, here are some of my favorites! While I can’t pick just one favorite, I am in love with Carrie Underwood’s over all look–not to mention the back of her stunning Gomez Garcia Gown. I was presently surprised by Paris Hilton’s glamorous, glowing presence on the red carpet. Another present surprise: Katy Perry’s stunning Elie Saab Haute Couture gown, which she flawlessly pulled off. But the hardest to ignore had to be Rihanna, who sizzled in the low cut black gown that she designed with Georgio Armani!

Best of 2011

This week Gwyneth Paltrow stunned at the 2011 Bambi Awards wearing an embellished emerald Elie Saab gown in Germany. The entire look was perfect, from her bright blond hair, to the sparkling diamond necklace, Paltrow made this Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 dress come alive! On another note, Kate Middleton looked stately as she donned a flawless, classic Jenny Packham gown, as she wore a poppy in remembrance of military veterans.
