Wedding Dresses

Although we think you'd be hard-pressed to find a bride who would turn her back on any one of the 44 flirty looks that Elie Saab sent down the runway earlier this week, the very last look has undeniable bridal appeal.

"I thought of the fairytales," Saab explained after the show, "which all girls dream of, in order to come up with this collection. Concerning colours, I thought of very soft colours but ones that still retained the dazzle I wanted to achieve in this collection."

And dazzle us he did. The wedding gown featured a sweeping pink and white ballgown-style skirt finished with crushed glitter. Cap sleeves, a tied waist, and a cutout neckline all reinforced the fairytale. Not to mention that endless train.

As the designer behind some of our favorite red carpet gowns, Elie Saab will no doubt be front and center at this year's Academy Awards. The question isn't which celebrity will be wearing Elie Saab, but how many.
