They are all so gorgeous and I love the fabric they used for these gowns... so soft and flowing.

Elie Saab and Valentino had that wonderful Parisian chic finish and overall, the best representation of femininity. It's interesting that you should point out the sleeveless dresses as the ones shown by Prada, Louis Vuitton and Giles also included that touch but in a more of a 60s kind of way. And to be quite honest although Im not a big fan of the latter named collections, I do like it as they again point out that sense of chic femininity from a previous era.
