Fairy tale blockbuster for Oscars by Elie Saab

“Forget Paris. The red carpet of Hollywood Boulevard is the most important, most famous catwalk of them all.”

With just weeks to go before the Academy Awards ceremony on February 26, one designer in particular stands in pole position: Elie Saab. he 47-year-old Lebanese couturier dressed two of the best dressed actresses at last Sunday’s Golden Globes, and managed to showcase both his ready-to-wear and haute couture lines to the waiting world. The golden yellow embroidered lace gown worn by Emily Blunt was from his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The twinkling fin de siècle number encrusted with pearls and quartz worn by Jessica Biel came from his Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 haute couture collection. Checking out next season’s forthcoming designer duds, Berenice Bejo was spotted at the Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 Haute-Couture Fashion Show as part of Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday (January 25). As for her developing career as a big-screen actor, Bejo was recently nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her role in “The Artist.” The 35-year-old said, “I’m overjoyed and filled with happiness. I can’t believe that a year ago I was learning how to tap dance and today I am nominated for an Academy Award. It was a thrill to work on a project as ambitious as ‘The Artist’ and I am happy to share this moment with our visionary director, Michel Hazanavicius.” Here we go with magic of Elie Saab for the magic kingdom of Hollywood where magic is real and dreams come true.

Executive Hotel chef Suki Sugiura and pastry chef Thomas Henri are going all out on the 69th Golden Globes dinner gala event. This is no farm to table fare. No this is very Hollywood.

The chocolate will be imported from Switzerland, acacia honey caramel coming from France, other goodies are expected from Spain and Italy. Five hundred magnums of the 2002, which was bottled and has been sitting for seven years — the longest resting period of any of the Moet Grand Vintages — will be served at the Golden Globes on January 15.
