Elie Saab Spring Summer 2013 Haute Couture

Who Will Wear Red Carpet Favorite Elie Saab at the Grammys, Oscars, Other Award Shows Ahead?


Given Elie Saab‘s status as a longtime red carpet favorite, no doubt Hollywood stylists and celebrities have been sifting through his spring summer 2013 haute couture collection ever since his Jan. 23 Paris show.

Saab is indeed famous for his body-beautifying red carpet dresses. Lea Michele of “Glee” wore his creations to this year’s Golden Globes and People’s Choice Awards; Nina Dobrev of “Vampire Diaries chose Saab for the SAG Awards; and Angelina Jolie, Rachel McAdams, Diane Kruger and Evan Rachel Wood turned up in his gowns at the Academy Awards in recent years.

And if the January show was any indication, Saab’s future reputation as an awards show favorite is assured, as the young generation was well-represented in the audience.

Named “It Girl” in the February issue of Vogue Magazine, the very captivating Tallulah Harlech sat among those in the front row. She said she thought of the designer for his expertise in red carpet dressing, and although such a need didn’t yet exist for her, things could change.

The daughter of model and fashion muse Lady Amanda Harlech, the young actress has two films coming up: “Spite & Malice” and “The Invisible Woman.”

Harry Brant and Peter Brant, Jr., also turned up at the Pavillon Cambon Capucines for the show. The sons of art collector Peter Brant and model Stephanie Seymour, both dressed in stylish attire for the occasion.

There, too, were Sophie Tweed Simmons and Nick Simmons, children of Gene Simmons of KISS and model Shannon Tweed.

Others in the crowd were burlesque artist Dita Von Teese and French actresses Virginie Ledoyen, Clotilde Courau and Marie-Josee Croze.
