It was a rainbow of colours at the Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 show yesterday. It was easy to see why Saab has become a favourite amongst the red carpet crowd with several knock-out gowns ranging from creamy ivory to mustard yellow to dusty orange, grass green and electric blue.

Fitted in the bodice and flaring out at the waist, these dresses were not meant for the faint-hearted. Think deep-V necklines, sexy thigh-high splits and cinched in at the waist. Saab's gowns were given a bit of extra detail with thin belts, sparkly embellishments, and delicate layers of chiffon in the skirt. We are bound to see more of this collection come award season time.
