Who said that sequins need to be monochromatic? We’re all used to seeing sequined frocks in silver, platinum, or gold – often in a single tone of color or a combination of varying hues. But this 2012, break away from the usual routine and be fab in a multicolored sequined dress.
Try on a fun yet sexy dress like the Emilio Pucci creation Paula Patton donned at the premiere of “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” in New York City. Adorned with feather-like appliques and geometric patches of sequined fabrics in a multitude of candy colors, this frock not only does the sequin trend spot on, but also combines it with the geometric print trend in a quirky, charming way without looking too cloy.
