I always feel a little annoyed at myself for being sucked in and enjoying an Elie Saab. Like, you KNOW it’s just such obvious celeb fashion, awards-show-baity. You can pretty much go through the show and figure out who each look was designed for - ok, there goes an Amber Heard, there goes a Keira Knightley, here’s a Blake Lively, etc etc.
But, that said, the looks ARE consistently pretty and if not conceptually challenging, then at least not lacking in execution. This season’s show if anything demonstrated a slight development and progression - only from pastels, through a rather unexpected and frankly ugly sort of mustard colour, through to a tinge of black gradually deepening the gowns like nightfall. A basic concept perhaps, but still pretty.
What I’ll also point out is that Saab opened the show with a model of colour, and some of the bigger, splashier and perhaps more important looks were given to the few non-white models on his runway. It’s sad that in 2014 a designer should be applauded for not sending out only white girls, but here we are.
STOP. This is the police, you’re under arrest for being too cute. Now, put your hands where I can hold them.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)

This is how I imagine you would feel at this moment, like the rest of the world is frozen and it’s just you two; together for what would seem like forever.
