An Ode to Delicacy

I have always been a sucker for lace, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw Elie Saab’s Couture Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

Saab has blended elegant mid lengths with full-length gowns and demure necklines to create a collection of fairytale dresses called ‘An Ode to Delicateness’. The gowns are all spectacularly embellished with beautiful beads and embroideries that float across the body. It is safe to say this collection is strictly evening wear (or afternoon cocktails) and wouldn’t look out of place on the red carpet.

Saab’s colour palette of nude, pale rose, ice blue, champagne and barely-there lilac are complemented beautifully by touches of red and black. The spring pastels and degrees of transparency are perfect for this year’s Spring/Summer awards season and ooze sophisticated glamour.

Sandra Bullock and Brit Marling are among many who have embraced the elegance of lace this spring.

Bullock went Black and Gold at this year’s Oscars, in a stunning lace and beaded gown by the one and only Elie Saab. Teaming the dress with Harry Winston jewels and sleek hair. A look that exudes evening glamour.

At the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards Brit Marling shows us how to channel 40s grace in a buttoned up sheer lace white and buttercup yellow Valentino dress with a soft updo and natural makeup. Perfect for Pimms on the lawn at any garden party this summer.

Lace details give a sense of romance to any outfit and can portray girlish charm or add a sexy edge to any look. What’s not to love?
