Everyone's a winner It's been more than a decade since Halle Berry accepted her best actress Academy Award, in an unforgettable burgundy gown created by a little-known Lebanese designer. It proved to be a pivotal moment for Beirut-born Elie Saab, opening the floodgates for royalty and red carpet regulars drawn to his elegant crystal-encrusted gowns and feminine silhouettes. Saab's glamorous, dreamy, princess gowns now grace almost every red carpet in Hollywood.
Having opened boutiques in Paris, London and Dubai, Saab is finally making a foray into Asia, with a store in Hong Kong. The sleek boutique carries all the pretty mint, grapefruit and sky blue dresses from his spring couture collection alongside his ready-to-wear line and the brand's first fragrance, a floral-woody scent called Le Parfum.
Elie Saab is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2810 4666.
