All That Glitters - Precious Metals Trend

The past few weeks have seen a number of beauties hit the red carpet in precious metals. Gold has had a strong showing on runways throughout the year and continues to be a favorite with silver, bronze and even copper making an appearance.

Heading into the Christmas party season I am loving the idea of wrapping myself up in precious metals! 

Elisha Cuthbert cut a fine figure in this Editions by Georges Chakra Spring 2011 gold sequin column dress. The color against her skin makes her positively glow. I love the simplicity of the hair and accessories. The beauty of precious metals is "less is more"!

Kate Moss stepped our draped in gold in this Marc Jacobs evening gown for her book launch. The dress has an old Hollywood vibe about it and I love the dark gold I just wish Kate and done something different with her hair and skipped that necklace!

Taylor Swift  looked divine in a Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2012 long-sleeve mini dress with gold accessories. A wonderful alternative to wearing a full gold gown, look for beading / embroidered detail in the color du jour.

Pink hit the AMA's red carpet in a beautiful Catherine Deane creation with bronze laser cut leather bodice. A wonderful alternative to gold bronze is a flattering color to many skin tones.

Karolina Kurkova recently stepped out draped in a silver Nicholas Oakwell Couture gown. She kept her look very tonal with all silver accessories adding a pop of color with her lipstick. This look may be overpowering on some but I found it very regal on Karolina.

Naomie Harris recently wore a spectacular Nicholas Oakwell Fall 2012 Couture mini dress combining black chiffon with copper embellishment...yes copper! She accessorized with a gold belt. Now this is how you mix your precious metals!

There is definitely something for everyone in the precious metal stakes. Find the color that suits you best and keep the rest of your styling simple for an elegant, eye catching look. Here are some of our top picks for getting in on the precious metal style yourself! Enjoy! Ronelle @ GoS xox
