Alber Elbaz

Awwww...is he not just the cutest ever??! LOL...by cute I mean adorable, children's book character cute...not sexy, hot cute :P Alber is of course the current Lanvin designer who has worked in the past for Geoffrey Beene and YSL (he was robbed by Tom Ford...). I have him to thank for my beloved Lanvin shoe box in the classic forget-me-not blue color :) In 2005, he was named International Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers for doing such a great job at turning the house of Lanvin around. He is known for mixing simplicity with indulgent pearls and ribbons, his goal is not to produce the 'it' design, but to offer timeless pieces that will last you long after all the other fads have faded into oblivion. When Shaw-Lan Wang purchased Lanvin, Alber called her and urged her to "wake up the sleeping beauty"...*sigh* what a great way to describe Lanvin...now if only I could actually afford the clothes...
