hey everyone item page number 35 #689 dress number 6. is my pick as one of the most gorgeous. although i must say there are many more picking only one from each designer is the hard part because they are all so talented and whatever the occasion or mood there's something for everyone. this is one of my favorite threads i always check this when the new seasons start to get the most current glimpses of all the designers. cool thread.

these are some pieces are from the spring/summer 2007 Couture collection of Zuhair Murad. I don't know but I thought they're beautiful!

Oh, before I forget, these pictures are all High Quality so they're pretty big! Just let it load before moving anything on your computers (but that if you have a pc)!

The detailing of these gowns is quite impressive.

Gown #7 would look great on Mette Marit, and I know the pale to med. beige may not be her stylist's first choice, but I honestly believe she could pull it off (especially with the right make-up and hair style.)

Gown #2 would look suit Mary's skin tone and the cut of the dress may be something new for her.

Gown #10 has Rania written all over it (although she might want to cover the shoulders, depending on the ocassion.) Only she could pull that silhouette.

Gown #8 for Letizia. Fantastic!

I don't know about you, Dazzling, but I wasn't impressed by Valentino's collection this season. I believe something was missing after viewing the collection online. What do you think?

Zuhair Murad is almost at the same level as Elie saab in the middle east. Those are great gowns, great detailing as well

Valentinos dresses were disappointing, very unflattering even on most of the models. I didn’t find anything that would make any of the gowns worth the price, also the beadwork on them wasn’t great. Though I must say, I liked the suits, but again they won’t suit everyone, I see them mostly on thin people because two suits on the runway made the model look bigger than she is. I think this wasn’t his best.

I think what was missing was color. Everything was white on the runway. Id hoped to see a few printed, colored outfits/dresses, maybe pastel chiffon mixed in with lace.

I've never been a fan of Carlos Miele's designs, but the three shades of midnight blue slik chiffon evening gown is not bad.

puppigurl2005, beautiful dresses, I like the J Mendel dress for a younger royal like Victoria or Madeleine maybe also Mary. The Valentino strapless gown is very nice, but i dont know who i can see that in, the blue layered dress could work for letizia

I had Letizia in mind when I saw this one, but then again, Maxima or maybe Mary could pull this one off..might have to take off a bit of the ruffles though

I think the spanish royalty (or just spaniards in general), espeacially Letizia, look great in red.

This gown is BREATHTAKING!

Bygone Beauty | Krikor Jabotian Akhtamar Collection 2014

This is definitely one of the most amazing gowns I have ever seen. The details of it are exquisite. I would love if Queen Rania, Mary, or Catherine would wear this dress.

That gown is simply breathtaking. Soft, flowing and so romantic! The first person that I thought of that would look wonderful in this gown is Victoria of Sweden. It looks like something she would just shine in.
