Sometimes it seems as though some designers
don’t particularly like women.
They cut their clothes for frighteningly thin,
boy bodied models,
and the garments don’t even look that comfortable.
And then there is Elie Saab.
He clearly worships the female form.
He designs for the natural curves of a woman’s body.
His clothes are built for an hourglass silhouette.
A constant international red carpet favorite,
Elie Saab’s designs embrace femininity and sexuality.
And not the bimbo-esque over inflated,
in your face sexuality,
but instead the low thrumming,
sensual and all encompassing.
The eye shouldn’t make a vertical pass
over a woman’s body –
it should roll around the curves.
After all, that’s what separates her from the boys…
