Tallulah Harlech, Dita Von Teese, Harry Brant and Peter Brant Jr. joined the crowd at the Elie Saab show Wednesday.

The Brant brothers are the sons of art collector Peter Brant and model Stephanie Seymour. A model and actress, Harlech is the daughter of Lady Amanda Harlech, a model and longtime Chanel muse.

Tallulah Harlech made the rounds of the Paris couture shows this week. She previously patronized Elie Saab, saying she thought of Saab for special occasion dressing, good for red carpets, which she hasn’t needed -- at least not yet.

"Watch that space," Harlech added, implying that things could change, since she has two movies in the works: "Spite and Malice" and "The Invisible Woman."

Known for his red carpet dresses, Saab first burst into international awareness in 2002, when he designed the dress Halle Berry wore as she nabbed a lead actress Oscar. He remains in demand during awards season, as evidenced by the bejeweled halter-neck, slit-thigh-high sparkler Lea Michele wore to the Golden Globes.

For the show, models glided through the Pavillon Cambon Capucines in gowns that shimmered, bared and showed off the figure, an ideal combination with awards season coming.
