Isn’t it gorgeous? This cocktail dress features allover sequins — pink sequins form tiny rosettes that add dainty sparkle while the royal blue sequins are simply eye-catching. The black back panel gives the illusion of curves and the big bow at the front adds a whimsical touch. Let’s look at the sequins in detail:
The dress is straight from the Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 collection and is also available at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Fresh and flirty with a touch of retro, this sequined sheath would make a perfect spring dress for those with bigger budgets. But if you want a dress that’s wallet-friendly, these frocks with sequin rosettes might catch your fancy:
Maggie Q arrives at the Audi Golden Globe 2013 Kick Off Cocktail Party in Los Angeles, California – 06 Jan 2013
Model and Nikita star Maggie Q attended the 2013 Audi-Golden Globe Kick Off Party wearing a sequined black mini dress with a frayed hem, a black leather moto jacket and biker boots. She accessorized with a black clutch, metal feather earrings and a thin cross pendant necklace. With her head to toe black ensemble, the actress might have been channeling the tough girl persona of her TV show character. Do you think her look is rocking or are you reeling from it?
I think it would have worked better if she wore a different pair of shoes as her boots are a bit heavy and chunky. A little heel would be nice and she could have showed off her gams even more with a pair of strappy stilettos, ankle booties or platform pumps.
A leather jacket works really well with a black sequined dress as it instantly punches up a look and adds edgy appeal. Here are some simple sequined mini dresses plus tough leather jackets we found for glam style with a dose of attitude:
Formula One heiress Tamara Ecclestone has made headlines quite recently when she was photographed looking buzzed after leaving a New Year’s Eve party in London.
Tamara Ecclestone leaves Annabel’s nightclub in Mayfair after New Years celebrations and a little unsteady on her feet in London, England – 31 Dec 2012
Her mother Slavica is seen supporting Tamara, who’s had one drink too many and appearing unsteady as she exited Annabel’s. Despite the billionaire heiress’ inebriated appearance, we can’t help but wonder about her stunning gold sequined dress which she matched with nude Christian Louboutins, a crystal box clutch and a festive glittery hat.
Too bad we can’t see the details of the dress’ neckline as Tamara’s tumble of curls covered the front, but we know that the dress is gorgeously sequined. If we’re not mistaken, it’s an Emilio Pucci creation. The socialite was also spotted a few days before the New Year fete shopping for an outfit with her sister Petra and Pucci was one of the designer boutiques they stopped in. Here is the dress which we think is the same one Tamara wore, if not something very similar:
A close up shows the lovely bead and sequin detailing of the dress which also has a fluted hem and three- quarter sleeves. If you’re yearning to get Tamara’s golden look while on a budget, these sequined dresses might just be right up your alley:
Said to be channeling Kristen Stewart (who is known for wearing designer outfits with sneakers), the comedic tandem are hell-bent on wearing sneaks with their gowns to stay comfy. Let’s see if the funny duo will stay true to their promise.
Want more laughs? Here’s a short clip on their Golden Globes teaser (note their fake “Old Hollywood accents”).
Quite interestingly, though, the two are competing against each other for the Best Comedy Actress award — Tina for 30 Rock and Amy for Parks and Recreation alongside contenders Zooey Deschanel (New Girl), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) and Lena Dunham (Girls).
We’re sure the show will be worth tuning in as the comedic pairing alone is enough to keep us in stitches. Of course, the sequined gowns from the red carpet arrivals to the show proper are on our watch list. Keep posted on our Golden Globe updates!
Ultimate celebrity stylist, fashion designer and sequin lover Rachel Zoe gave us the scoop on how to wear the Little Sequin Dress or LSD on Extra a few days ago.
