Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2013 Haute-Couture show as part of Paris Fashion Week at Pavillon Cambon Capucines



Fresh-faced models with their hair worn up in neat twists looked fairy-tale like in bejewelled gowns at the Elie Saab haute couture show yesterday. Delicate lace and tulle were overworked with precious crystal embellishments in baroque motifs which looked ornate, yet never over the top. 

The feminine collection took on a darker mood when the colour palette turned to red and black but it was no less beautiful for it. 

A veiled bride in a plume of champagne lace with a floor-sweeping train closed the show.
