Red Carpet Trendwatch: Metallic Dresses at the Grammys

02/12/2007 at 10:00 AM ET

Forget the blinged out watches and medallions — the real sparkle on the red carpet came from the sequined metallic dresses that ruled the red carpet. From Vanessa’s silver sequins to Hilary’s sexy gold Dolce & Gabanna to Fergie’s shimmering steel Badgley Mischka, short and shiny was the major look of the night. Even for the ladies who didn’t wear it head to toe, metallic accents popped up on Nelly Furtado, Beyonce and many more. The key to making the look work? Keeping the hemlines above the knee and accessories to a minimum. Tell us: What do you think of the metallic dresses? Is this a trend you would try?

Where can you find Fergie’s Dress. I know its Badgley Mischka but i really really want that dress!!!

I like Hillarys dress the best. Fergie and Vanessa looked good to. I didn’t like Hills hair though it looked just a little to wild and messy for me, I would also like to see her go a little lighter with her hair maybe a lighter brunette color. Other than that she looked great.

I LOVE HILARY DUFF, but I didn’t like this hair

I love all of the dresses.
But is it just me, or does Hilary look like she’s come back from the dead?
I’m usually against tanning beds, but I think she needs one.

I’m a huge fan of Hilary and think she usually looks gorgeous, but her hair is way too dark and messy, her skin is too pale for the hair, and she is looking too thin. I do like her dress though.

Fergie looks incredible. Her legs look awesome with that dress. Vanessa looks pretty good…not as good as Fergie though.

Lorenzo on

The Hilary Duff’s dress is the best… Hilary is very sexy and she’s most beautiful of when i have the blonde hair!!!

The only dress here I like is the one on Fergie, she looks great. The other 2 weren’t very flattering. Vanessa looks like she’s wearing aluminum foil and Hillary looks very washed out in that gold dress with her hair dyed black.

Hilary is way too pale. But i think that Fergie loked the best in it. Vanessa loks the same as always and i think she loks like a monkey. I would totally try this……….if only i can afford it.
