A Gold Rush On The Spring Runways

-------

Sparkle is a no-brainer at the holidays, but we’ll all shine on well into 2009 if the runways are any indication (click for slideshow). At Balenciaga, Nicolas Ghesquière showed off an iridescent ribbon dress that caught Cate Blanchett’s eye—she’s already worn it to the Sydney premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (left). Derek Lam and Chloé’s Hannah MacGibbon both turned out voluminous metal-treated pants, and a paneled Victoriana gown at Nina Ricci shimmered in the stage lights. Elsewhere, designers brought new meaning to that 2008 catchphrase, liquidity. At Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent, reflective gowns melted down the body. Here’s to a new year that’s shiny and bright. Click here for a gallery of metallic looks.

    I believe that the Nicolas Ghesquiere was not appropriate for a movie premiere maybe the Jill Stuart or Nathan Jenden would have been a better choice.

    I think the dress is very nice. A statement but not an overstatement! In times of recession and downfall clothing has a tendency to be dark mundane and subtle. I think this is a great way to add bling to your outfit with out all the glory.
