This collection took a joyful look at Southern Italy, with colorful and oversized bright prints that included tomatoes, peppers and even eggplant. Lush but almost rustic in nature, the collection had a 50s feel to it, from the elegant textured suiting to full skirts and bare midriffs. But a Dolce & Gabbana collection wouldn't be complete without sexy black lace - the evening mesh, colorful crystals and sparkling hotpants still managed to look ladylike and elegant.

Elie Saab showed off his new Spring 2011 couture collection during Paris Fashion Week, and it's not a question of "if" these dresses will be worn on the red carpet - we just have to ask "who" and "when".
And it's not just his Haute Couture collection that has become a favourite among celebrities - his Ready to Wear dresses have been seen on everyone from Angelina Jolie to Mila Kunis, Halle Berry and Helen Mirren.
For Spring 2011, gone were dramatic sheers and bright metallics, replaced by soft pinks with floral applique, pale grey lace, with delicate and demure details that remind us of an elegant romantic garden party.

The elegant flow of skirts, casual but precise draping, and how about the stunning sweeping pink floral applique dress dripping with twinkling petals? A work of art.
As far as couture goes, these dresses looked wonderfully wearable, and it's an easy guess that we will see some of them on the red carpet at the Academy Awsards next month!
