if i ever begin to doubt my love for elie saab, i just have to look at this dress.
elie saab has perfected the difficult-to-achieve look of being soft & feminine without being too "girly-girly." aka, the look i aspire to capture whenever i go out.
just look at leighton meester in this incredible blue dress:

as fashion blogger jenna at couture snob said, "This is the kind of dress that makes me say, 'I seriously need to go to events where I can wear things like this!'" agreed.
oh, and hollywood seriously needs to rethink its obsession with plunging necklines & bursting-the-seams cleavage [*ahem* katy perry *ahem*] because this dress is proof that high necks can be s-e-x-y.
