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?

i think all the dresses are really gorgeous. fergie & vanessa look awesome, but poor hilary! what happened to her?? she usually looks really cute. she is way too pale and her hair is just craaaazy!

I think Fergie’s too-short dress makes her look like a Barbie in lingerie. Vanessa and Hilary should have done something more with their hair, but otherwise they looked good.

Metallic done right is fantastic as demonstrated by the three examples given up for comment – PEOPLE has published many a picture of those who’ve done it wrong. Before I’d put on a dress of that nature – I’d be thumbing through all my old issues to make sure I was’t a fashion catastrophe.
