Elie Saab after showing his Fall 2009 Haute Couture collection
Elie Saab must be quite happy right now. Two major celebrities attended two different awards shows, each with different audiences, in pieces from his Fall 2009 Haute Couture collection. First, Marion Cotillard wore a one shouldered, beaded and feathered, short dress to the Golden Globes. Then, Rihanna turned up at the Grammys, a week later, in a feathered, beaded and draped floor-length gown. Mr. Saab is having a wonderful moment with this latest bit of exposure, in addition to having two new clients in his books.
