Exhibit D: Elie Saab, spring/summer 2010
And these! I am in love:
And the gowns!
It is at moments like these that I wish I were a famous Hollywood actress so that I could select one for my walk down the red carpet. They look so organic & natural, as if they were dyed with the ink of strained moss & rose petals, which is just what I imagine spring fashion should be. After all, this is the season when we celebrate the return of the garments of Madame Earth, after all the months she spent spent shivering nakedly under the snow.
Et finalement, la Crème de la Crème! I have a particular infatuation with the beautiful watercolor-wash prints on the fabulously full skirts of these gauzy gowns:
Which is why Monet must have his hand in this creative crockpot... this particular dress, while stylistically more remiscient of O'Keefe, has the delicate, uncomplicated beauty of Monet's water lilies.
Thank you, Monet, for your un-graphic influence. The dress on the right must have been a solo project--it's so perfectly painted in your style.
