we are shaped and fashioned by what we love.

Lately, there have been so many examples of great fashion on the red carpet. Out of all of these red carpet looks, it is the bronze and metallic gowns I find myself drawn to. I love the power and femininity these dresses convey. They are bold and unapologetically sexy.

Here are some of the red carpet looks I am loving at the moment.

1) Amber Heard at The Art Of Elysium's 5th Annual Heaven Gala
What I Love:
This figure-hugging dress is a showstopper. The sequins on the bodice are so flattering, and I love the way the bottom of the dress drapes. This gorgeous shimmery bronze colour looks fantastic on Amber. I love the simple accessories and her bold red lip and nail polish colour.

2) Victoria Justice at 13th Annual Warner Bros and InStyle Golden Globes Awards After Party
What I Love:
I love the classic style of this dress. It is elegant and sophisticated, but the beautiful pearl and metallic beading at the collar really makes this dress stand out. I love the drop earrings and the simple accessories. Like Amber's red carpet look, Victoria chose a a bold red lip to really pull this look together.

3) Paris Hilton at the Golden Globes
What I Love:
Paris looks breathtaking in this gold goddess dress. The ruching and beading add so much elegance to the garment. I instantly fell in love with the way the gown drapes. Like Amber and Victoria, Paris chose understated jewellery to really showcase this stunning dress.

What do you think of these red carpet looks?

  29. I definitely agree that these gold gowns are plain sexy and they know it, lol. Gold is also such an elegant color so they convey much more than just sex appeal.
