The Solar Eclipse was not the only thing people across the globe were shielding their eyes from this year. The shiny silk gowns our hottest celebrities have taken to recently, are equally blinding…in a good way. From Valentino and Saint Lauruent, to Muse Luxe, every designer is meddling with the on-trend metallic hue. It is not just the runways of Milan and Paris fashion week, our very own PLBW and QHSA saw celebrities sporting the trend with equal panache.
It leaves us, bystanders, wondering if sunglasses should become a regular accessory at the red carpets, because THAT shine is murderous!
Let’s take a look at who wore it best recently.
Mahira Khan stuns on the October cover of OK! Pakistan in a dazzling gold gown in a simple cut while the wind plays with her hair. She looks stunning in the almost liquid-like gown. Then again, what doesn’t she look good in? We love the minimal accessories and them bold lips.
Our girl Mawra is always on top of the trend game! Like, always. It’s not even a joke. She shone bright (quite literally) earlier this month at the Fair & Lovely meet and greet in a shimmery silver number by Muse Luxe. Let’s not miss the equally reflective bag in tow!
Palwasha Yousuf let loose in a flowing shimmery ice-blue number somewhere in Malta. Rest assured, the pool isn’t the only cool thing in this photo!
Yep! That’s right. It’s not just our desi celebrities who are out to blind us with the metallic shine. Selena Gomez stuns in a super sexy number at the American Music Awards and we think it is about time we invested in one such piece!
Moving on, it was time for Penelope Cruz to shine at the BAFT 2017 Awards. Looking hot as ever, she kept it chic and sophisticated in a gold gown that dazzled every step of the way.
So, who do you think wore it best?
