Talk about gilding the lily! It was all about gold on Sunday night at the Grammy Awards in L.A. and the BAFTA Awards in London, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘s Noomi Rapace shone in the metallic hue. But blinging babes beware: A gown in get-noticed gold is not for the faint of heart. “They tailored it to where my whole butt wouldn’t fit into it. The designers had to come in and fix the whole thing!” Kardashian lamented to Ryan Seacrest of her Kaufman Franco design. Similarly, Klum’s slinky Julien Macdonald design, which she paired with python Christian Louboutins, was an equally fitted column complete with a dare-to-bare slit. Across the pond, BAFTA best actress nominee Rapace channeled bad girl Lisbeth Salander in a curve hugging, corseted Givenchy Haute Couture gown and studded, metal belt. Looks like fierce fashion has new golden standard! Tell us: Are you bold enough for gold? Justine Harman
