You’ve been all asking for these pictures for so long already. I have to say that I’ve been highly hesitating on whether or not, I should share these pictures on L’Armoire De Lana…
You must already know that I highly value my personal life so I sometimes find it inappropriate to share it too much. But then again, this time, it’s about a dress and if I don’t share details about it just like any other of my look, well it wouldn’t make sense!
I was blessed to be offered the most beautiful dress by my parents for my engagement cocktail. I have to say that I left the choice to my mother who picked every single detail of my engagement look. I love her sense of style and elegance and I felt like going for her suggestion, which appeared to actually be the right thing to do. I keep on repeating how I grew up highly affected by how she views beauty in things and I believe that this is how I learned how to build my own sense of style.
I love everything about this dress from its very neutral color, to the details of the beadings and the princess cut that I’ve actually never worn before. Moreover, it’s the perfect mix between elegance and a little bit of daring with the upper-cut of the gown.
Thank you Elie Saab for being so excellent at doing what you do, I loved the experience of being able to wear one of your designs, I truly felt like a princess and the whole process of trying on the several stages of the dress was just amazing.
For my makeup, Fady Kataya opted for a purple smokey, which looked particularly beautiful as it’s the color that brings out my eyes’ color the most. Yes, try to go for purple and aubergine if you have green eyes!
I wanted to keep my hair as natural as possible, thank you Tony El Mendelek for the most natural hair waves.
I am wearing: Elie Saab haute couture dress and shoes from A Royal Affair, Fall Winter 2013 collection.
