Spot-On Red Carpet Confections from Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2012

Any lover of red carpet fashion will find it impossible to resist Elie Saab’s spot-on (as always) couture confections. Shown in a range of neutrals, black, pale pink, and baby blue, each of the 45 dresses this season were cinched at the waist with a slender belt. The result was a fantastic lineup of ethereal, feminine, waist-focused cocktail dresses and gowns, many of which featured embroidery atop delicate sheer fabric. The piece de resistance was the final brocade wedding gown, which was truly breathtaking with its gold embroidery and lace.

It's also worth noting that a number of the collection's looks featured long sleeves, a growing trend this couture season.
