Now this is how you do sparkles with sophistication…
Couture Fashion Week is already underway in Paris, with a host of European labels such as Chanel and Dior displaying their fairytale pieces on the catwalk.
However the Middle East’s fashion industry is also well-represented at the five-day affair, with several Lebanese labels scheduled to present their collections.
Among them is Georges Hobeika, who took to the runway on Monday to showcase his Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 haute couture line.
And what a collection it was.
The Beirut-born brand, which still has its main atelier in Lebanon, used ethereal chiffons, glimmering beading and richly ornate fabrics to create a range worthy of a princess.
Here, we’ve cherry-picked our top 10 looks from the catwalk collection for you to daydream over too…

Is this vibrant purple hooded cape too much for the office? We’d be willing to push the boundaries of what constitutes workwear to swan around in this…
A relaxed off-shoulder blouson with a sweeping, form-fitted skirt is always a winning combination, but a fiery red with a metallic hit elevates this look to new levels.
