Gold for Grammys

America's Sweetheart in Gold: Taylor Swift

Today's post will be about gold and embellishment. I have become obsessed with the glitz and glam of these gowns like a five year old girl. Super girly and super sparkly! Taylor Swift was jaw-dropping at last night's 54th Annual Grammy Awards in a gold dragon embroidered ZUHAIR MURAD FALL 2011 Couture gown. The high collar, capped-sleeve, floor length gown showed an Asian influence. With such a sophisticated gown, Taylor wore a sleek top-knot bun and a pair of chic gold earrings. She was absolutely AMAZING! 

Recapping back to the American Music Awards, Taylor wore a stunning gold sequinned gown from Reem Acra's Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Also paired with a simple hairdo and minimal accessories. This moment of her in the dress was also breath-taking. 

G- it's Gucci
Other beautiful gold dresses include the one that Italian Actress Carolina Crescentini wore at the 68th Venice International Film Festival. It was a dazzling embellished one-shoulder dress by Gucci.

Be the Prom Queen
Stepping away from the high-end fashion brands, below are online ball gowns that I found absolutely gorgeous. On the right is an evening dress by Mac Duggal worth USD $498. To the left of the photo is a more simpler dress by Terani Couture Prom valued at USD $378 

Moving into the Asian entertainment industry, we have Hong Kong TVB Actress Linda Chung (bottom) at the 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards wearing a Barney Cheng design worth $131,000 HKD, equivalent to almost USD $17,000.

Sarah Burton's design for Alexander McQueen is uncontrollably alluring. This white and gold gown from the Resort 2012 collection is absolutely amazing.

But the recent designer that's recently on my radar is Elie Saab. Below are some beautiful gowns from his haute couture show at Hotel Intercontinental in Paris (2008). 

This now brings us to Elie Saab in 2012. The beautiful Katy Perry glided down the red carpet of the Annual Grammy Awards wearing an Elie Saab Spring Couture gown. Although I think it's a beautiful gown on her, it wouldn't have been my choice from the collection.

Below is a glimpse of the Elie Saab Spring Couture 2012 collection
