When Lebanese director Nadine Labaki won an award at the Cannes Film Festival, it was fitting that she was wearing Elie Saab. Her compatriot has been dressing powerful women for the red carpet for many years since starting his business in the early 1980s.

His couture collections are available in Paris, London and Beirut, while his ready-to-wear clothes are available from premium retailers around the globe and his own boutiques.
