This season, Elie Saab reined in the sparkle to deliver some of the season's best red carpet looks and — surprsingly — best daywear. Done, with the exception of some yellow pieces, in a dark monochrome palette, stand-outs included draped fitted tops, pencil skirts paired with paneled cropped jackets, a cocktail dress with a full skirt and trim trousers. For eveningwear, the designer was at his best when he used sheer fabrics as his base for embellished looks, opening up his collection to a whole new, more youthful demographic.
