Metallics are nothing new. But blinding beading, luxe fabrics, sheer sheen, Lurex lovin', and sequin overload, were runway dominant. Think of it as an evolution; this season's offerings are far from shy, they are as heavy hitting as Metallica. In-your-face, it's time to shine shine shine.
Can you refuse Versace's gold and silver beaded mini dress? I didn't think so. Yves Saint Laurent's forest green sequin jumper may be overboard for some, but I wouldn't kick it out of my bed. Lastly, I die for Karl Lagerfeld's silver liquid gown. Metal heads, are you with me?

No one is safe from the recession; not even Marc Jacobs. If canceling his legendary holiday party and Fashion Week party weren't enough, the fashion house has announced it will be slashing its coveted Fall fashion show guest list from 2,000 to a mere 700. “This isn’t the time to spend the money to entertain the entire world,” said president of Marc Jacobs International, Robert Duffy.
The show will be held at the same venue in past years — the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue. “Everybody thinks it costs the same money to entertain 500 people as opposed to 2,000 [when you’ve got the space]. It doesn’t. All those 2,000 people still need to be seated, they still need to check in, this one needs this, that one needs that, and you know what? It’s very costly,” said Duffy. I was lucky to receive an invite last September and crossing my fingers for another one this year . . .
Brittany Snow made an appearance on the red carpet at The Maxim Party to celebrate Super Bowl weekend in Tampa. She stopped and posed long enough to show of her lovely legs in her Alice + Olivia mock-neck dress. Beyond that, she went minimal with the accessories, opting only for a few bangles and patent pumps. Shop it all now.
Jennifer Hudson — singing her heart out at the Super Bowl — shows us how to dress both sporty and sultry. She's ahead of the fashion game wearing the jacket of the season, the little drummer jacket, and she incorporated rich gold through the rest of her look via Sigerson Morrison's dramatic gladiator wedges and twisted gold jewelry. Sing it sister!
