The much anticipated Elie Saab boutique finally opened its doors on 10 Rue du General Guisant in a tasteful venue by the lake and a few steps away from the prestigious Rue du Rhône. Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to visit the new Elie Saab store and play dress up with the some the prettiest Fall/Winter 2012 evening gowns and capture this moment exclusively for my blog.

Bliss is not something that can be experienced everyday but there comes a time in a woman’s life where she will witness true bliss the minute she’ll enter an Elie Saab store, browse through all the luxurious and sparkly textures and be struck by grace.

Elie Saab is not only about beautifully crafted sequined dresses with a unique savoir-faire, there’s something enchanting about each and every single of his pieces. The kind of enchantment that makes all your childhood dreams of becoming a princess come true. I was honored to experience this fairy-like sensation.

They say destiny will always find its way, and here you are, standing in an ocean of gowns, you’ve found THE ONE and your heart begins to melt. The ONE special dress that makes you feel like a million dollars and at this very right moment, you know you’ve fallen under Elie Saab’s spell. And in my case, I was completely seduced by the blue dress featured below. Red carpet, where are you?

Mr. Saab has the Midas touch, everything he creates turns into a true work of art, from embellished clutches to evening gowns, and let’s not even mention wedding dresses. Very few tastemakers from this century have succeeded to enhance a woman’s body by putting forward her most appealing features. And if you’re wondering what’s the secret ingredient to this exquisite chemistry? A simple mixture of noble textiles and a passionate woman who smiles with her heart. The rest will continue to work its magic…

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your wishes and in turn, I wish a Merry Christmas to all of my readers. Thank you for being so supportive, I hope all your dreams come true. I would also like to thank the Elie Saab team who made this wonderful experience come true and of course Anna Martynova without whom this magical moment would have never been captured.
