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?

fergie looks the best. hilary’s dress is the nicest looking. vanessa average. hilary looks ill…sickly. it’s actually gross. she looks like she’s dying.

Hilary looks like she’s on meth, Vanessa looks like a wanna be dream girl! The only one who looks half descent
is Fergie, but for real none of these dresses are too

I LOOOOVE Hilary Duff and I for one think she looked great at the awards this is just a non-flattering picture.

Hmm… I think they all look hot actually… but I think, contrary to popular belief that Hilary Duff’s dress is the best, but she kindof looks like a deformed China doll, she’s so pail.

I personally like Vanessa’s the best, I like Fergie’s but Vanessa’s looks better. Hilary should of stayed blonde, the dark color isnt pretty on her, it makes her look extremely pale! But like her dress.
