The Lebanese designer well known for his luxuriously gorgeous gowns that inevitably grace the Hollywood red carpets year after year has taken a far different approach for the up and coming season, which, for the Elie Saab Spring 2010 collection, meant borrowing from Balmain.

While obviously taking a page out of the books of Balmain designer Christophe Decarnin for the Elie Saab Spring 2010 collection, there was still the crowd-pleasing evening wear, draped to perfection and silhouette-enhancing.
