Wedding Bells

Elie Saab Spring Couture 2011

(Click on images to enlarge)

1) Black. Not too revealing however still sexy and black just makes it mysterious! The second piece reminds me a little of Chanel.

2) Olive. Classy and young in olive! Compliment women with very fair skin.

3) Peach. Pretty in peach! Sophisticated and shows the rosy side of women.

4) Floral printed. Floral printed makes wedding gowns interesting and out of the norm.

5) Bustiers, one shoulder, cap sleeved.

6) My favourite out of the lot! Complete with a lacy embroided veil, this dress is amazing.

7) Footwear in Elie Saab Spring Couture 2011- loving the red pair

These are a few pieces of Elie Saab's Spring Couture for 2011. I always wanted wedding gowns from Vera Wang. Guess i made a mistake! (Sorry Ms Vera!) I practically love all the gowns in this collection! Interesting designs on gowns while toning down with the footwear makes it balanced. The styling is good too. Bunned hair with loose streaks makes a lady more feminine and sexy. Nude make up so as to allow all attention to be on the detailed gowns. I would so wear them all if I have the opportunity!

This season, ombre hair and dip dyed hair is spotted on runways and on celebs!
Ombre hair is when you dye your hair using a dark colour from the top of your head and form a graduation to the bottom of your hair with lighter colours....

Ombre hair as seen on:

Dip Dyed Hair is when you tint your hair only at your hair ends... mostly commonly with cotton candy colours and creating the "dip" effect... (hence the name)

Dip Dyed Hair as seen on:

I personally like the Dip Dyed Hair, hence, i'm doing a longer part for it(:

I really like the Dip Dyed style!! But you know, it's really hard to maintain the colour!
Especially on asian's black hair. Firstly, it's hard to enhance the colour during the dye-ing process compared to dye-ing it on blondes...
Don't get it?
Alright, if you use a green colour pencil to colour on a piece of white paper and a piece of black paper, which piece of paper will have a brighter and more obvious green?
There. White.
Same logic on asian's black hair to non-asian's "white" hair. (P/S I didn't just create this logic. It was from a professional hair stylist.)
However, i'd definitely love to try!
Hmmm, maybe with dusty blue or ash green!
