Calling all A-List Celeb Stylists Dressing for the Academy Awards:

Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2013

According to Nicole Phelps of Style.com: "Elie Saab's phone has been ringing all week with celebrity stylists saying they'll be calling as soon as the Couture pictures are online. Either that, or they're asking for photos of the dozen or so dresses that aren't appearing on the catwalk. If it doesn't make it down the runway, it looks custom on the red carpet, even if if isn't. That can make the difference when an actress is choosing her gown for the Oscars..."  Interesante. Moving on...
The Look: Oscars. Red Carpet. Gorgeous sequined applique "day" sheaths, cocktail, evening gowns in column shapes as well the full "Ball Gown Lite" silhouette. This collection was breathtakingly luxe, expensive. I venture to guess, if someone (a very RICH Russian Billionaire's wife) was to order, the lowest priced garment would probably set them back maybe $40,000. Easily. For a "Daytime" Sheath Dress with that amazing Elie Saab hand-beaded embroidery. Of note, a couple of the looks were eerily similar to that Gwyneth Paltrow gown designed by Tom Ford that she wore to last year's Academy Awards. Interesante Part Deux. (Pics below in the post)

Here are some of my Favorite Looks--from "day" to The Wedding:
