Awards Show season is also upon us, which means you're favourite celebs will be out on the red carpet in an assortment of looks. Shades of gold have always been a popular choice, from rich embellishments to gorgeous liquid gold - Cate Blanchett just walked the red carpet at the 2012 AACTA Awards in a dress that combined both - check out this spectacular piece by Alexander McQueen.
For your own event, you have the same choices - embellished or textured effects, like sequins and paillettes, or straight-up shiny gold silk and satin. The shades can be vivid and bright, dark and dramatic or something light and soft. Elizabeth Banks looked fantastic at the Los Angeles premiere of 'Man on a Ledge' in a light gold and silver crystal embellished dress by Emilio Pucci (and you can buy her strappy gold sandals online!). Which brings us to accessorizing - leave all colour behind when you wear a gold dress, and accessorize with crystals, other shades of gold or even white. Check out the photos of Cate and Elizabeth for perfect looks in gold, as well as our picks for the best gold dresses in an assortment of prices!
