Elie Saab took the idea of "clothes too pretty to be real" to another level Wednesday with his spring 2015 couture collection, shown in Paris. On a tree-lined runway, Saab showed a collection of dresses that looked like something out of a fairytale -- a fairytale in which the wardrobe is incomprehensibly beautiful and romantic.

The collection begins with long, slinky gowns in washed-out hues with sparkly appliqués and embroideries, some with a smattering of feathers on the sleeves or along the bodice. Dresses gradually get more structured and ornate, with layers of ruffles, head-to-toe shimmering beading and colorful, oversized flower appliqués. The models' Veronica Lake hair looked particularly glamorous with a range of black, sparkly gowns, while an over-the-top, rainbow-hued "wedding" gown, modeled by Anna Cleveland, spanned the entire width of the runway.

If it weren't for Twitter, I'd question whether these clothes actually existed -- that's how pretty they are just from the photos. I wouldn't be surprised if some of these gowns aren't already on their way to Hollywood for the remainder of awards season. See the full collection below.
