Latest dresses from Elie Saab Ready-to-Wear Spring 2011 Collection

I found myself engulfed tonight by dresses that define both elegance and femininity in an almost dream-like manner. There is something in the way Ellie Saab designs his dresses. He is able to visualize how his dress would create luxury and power in a woman yet mixes it with softness and comfort. I'm quite surprised, I would be so willingly wear everything from his Ready-to-Wear Spring 2011 Collection. This isn't my case for all designers. How many designers outfits are looking good on the runway but would never make me confident and comfortable to wear.

Ellie Saab is a Lebanese fashion designer who's self-made and self-trained. He started designing dresses and outfits at age 9 for his sisters using his mother's table cloths and curtains. At age 18, he put up his first atelier at Lebanese and all his evening gowns and wedding dresses were well-received. He must be a genius beyond his age.

He worked his way up to attain fame and expand his empire. But what made him a star was actually that dress that Halle Berry wore at the Oscars in 2002 when she received her first Oscar award. Since then, several A-list celebrities embraced his designs.

Rarely do I spend hours looking and studying designers' dresses because I bar myself from spending too much money for too expensive designs that are beyond my means. I have projects in mind that would make my future, therefore, I need to save my money. Meantime, just let me dream for all these alluring dresses.
