Elie Saab couture collection for spring 2011 did not receive a very good review from Style.com. They thought the collection "felt heavy and slightly old fashion". A disagree with their review. I thought the gowns were beautiful and even tough they were slightly heavy, I could see myself in most of them. I though the girls looked sexy without showing mush of their body and the attention to detail was impeccable. Here are some trends I notice :
Bat sleeves, beading and sequins, see through, velvet details, one shoulder and strong shoulders, lame, silk tulle and flowy sheer fabrics, draping and ruffles. The colors were red, till green, taupe and yellow gold.
