We love a dose of precious metal especially when it’s done so, so right. We’re talking the colors and not pure metal, though, which is even more interesting. Last night’s Golden Globes brought us the gifts of Kristen Bell and Emily Blunt who wore silver and gold, respectively, in a manner that invites spontaneous sighs of approval. Special mention has to be given to Kristen who is a couple of months pregnant and has taken awards show maternity dressing to a new high. Her silvery Jenny Packham Spring 2013 gown flowed over her like a dream and that crystal embroidery over the bodice and neckline is ethereal. Similar props have to be given for the makeup and hair. Emily’s embroidered gold Michael Kors gown — hurrah for the cut-outs — also floored us. The touch of ruby through her jewelry, highlighted as she wore her hair up in a bun, is such an unusual choice but it works so well.
While the looked amazo head-on, here’s the back-view. Kristen’s crystal trail adds the extra bit of glamour, while Emily’s cut-outs with the simple body-con silhouette keeps it minimal, yet incredibly sexy. Bravo, ladies!
