Elie Saab is one of my favourite designers, and not just because he’s Lebanese. His collections are amazing, so regal, feminine, dream-like, but still sexy. Saab was the first Lebanese designer to be seen on the red carpet,made famous by a dress Halle Berry wore to the Oscars he basically became famous overnight. With studios in Beirut, Paris, and Milan his gowns are extremely coveted (especially by me and my sister who spent hours gawking at the newest collection recently). Though these haute commodities are up there in dollars, maybe they’ll serve as inspiration for you. They are works of art. See his collections here.
If you’re in Paris, make sure you visit the Montmartre area, the cobble stone roads up to the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur, the big and beautiful church at the top of the hill. The walk up there at night is gorgeous, you’ll see the Eiffel Tower across the city and when it’s lit up at night, it’s unreal. The Boulevard de Clichy is one of the main roads, take Rue Lepic from there. Nearby is the Moulin Rouge, which many people say the area is a bit seedy, but it’s not – it’s just a bit busy. Get passed that, walk up to the church, and try one of the little restaurants, and it’s a great time. We went to Le Petit Parisien, and it was so delicious.Pin It
