Star Light Star Bright

The new year is an invitation to new beginnings. New Year's Eve sparkled with the opportunity to begin a new chapter, but the sparkle of something new continues to shimmer with promise as we enter into January.
 Designer Elie Saab explored the out of this world constellations and their jewel-worthy stars in his Fall 2016 couture collection. The gowns dazzle with detailing inspired by the beauty of nature, providing inspiration for our own star gazing and dreaming.

The dark night sky is brightened by its canvas of diamond-like stars. The sky that often appears black, is so much more when viewed away from the bright lights of the city. 
Stars of green, red, orange, yellow, white and blue are spread against the sometimes purple and blue sky. 

The stars shimmer, smiling down on the earth with a wink and nod to all who take a moment to look up.
 “Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have this wish I wish tonight.”

The year has passed as quickly as a shooting star across the horizon, so take a moment to make a wish before it's too late. As 2016 fades into 2017, imagine all that can be and take hold of it.
