As you all know, we love gold, not only because it is a fantastic ingredient to use in our skin care products, but also because it is one of the most striking, yet classy, colors out there. While gold may not be a color that you tend to wear on a regular basis, it is a great choice for special occasions. Here are some of our favorite glamorous gold gowns, each of which ensure that all eyes will be on you throughout the night.
Oscar de la Renta: Champagne Foil Splattered Tulle Gown
While champagne shades are not technically gold, they are still a great option for when you want something subtle but just as powerful. This elegant design from Oscar de la Renta features a crush pleated gown made from champagne foil splattered tulle. The bodice is fitted, contrasting beautifully with the full circle skirt, exuding a sense of modern glamor. We recommend wearing a cinching metallic belt with the gown, emphasizing its stunning silhouette while adding a slightly edgy touch.
Donna Karan New York: Resort 2015 Collection Gold Sequin Gown
This shimmering gold sequin gown from Donna Karan New York is part of the brand’s Resort 2015 Collection, and makes for an extremely striking silhouette. The gown features long sleeves with cold shoulders, with this flash of skin giving a sexy edge to the otherwise relatively demure front. The back of the gown is open, giving it an alluring yet sophisticated quality.
Marchesa Notte: Dipped in Gold Gown
This gold princess ball gown is guaranteed to have you standing out at any event you may attend. The gown has a fairytale quality to it, while being fresh and modern at the same time. Featuring delicate gold lace and sheer long sleeves, the gown has a full skirt, with ribbon details at the waistline to accentuate the silhouette. The dress is partially lined, showing the perfect amount of skin beneath the sheer lace detailing.
Alice + Olivia: Harrison Gold Lamé Mini Dress
We wouldn’t exactly consider this dress to be a gown, but we thought it was still worth mentioning, as it is a beautiful gold piece that can be dressed both up or down. The dress is a fully lined halter neck, with an open back that has the zip running provocatively down it. With an A-line silhouette, the dress is fun and feminine, is a great way to show off your legs, and can easily be paired with simple sandals if you want to wear it during the day.
Gold is truly a special color, conjuring up feelings of confidence, power and luxury. The next time you are shopping for a dress for a special occasion, keep our favorite glamorous gold gowns in mind, as we are sure that, once you try them on, you will love them just as much as we do.
