Shorts from Elie Saab? As unlikely as it sounds, believe it. The red-carpet favorite is building his daywear business and shorts are trending at the moment, so he put a couple pairs in his Resort collection. They came in a black and white tweed and a gray shade with tuxedo stripes on the sides, but there was nothing conservative about their length. Indeed, most of Saab's new collection has a body-conscious feel, be it a clingy stretch knit dress with lace insets, or a fitted peplum top and narrow pencil skirt. As usual, he kept the color palette tight and offered everything in multiple options. Like the apple green sheath with origami folds at the shoulders and waist? You can also get it in orchid, chesnut, or black. It was no surprise, either, that his evening dresses were the highlights. Two in particular are worth mentioning. The first came in black jersey with tulle insets at the shoulders; the second followed the same slim lines but was made from sequin-embellished lace.
