Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat was recently spotted wearing a blue halter gown with all-over sequin and bead detailing that looked like tiny bubbles from afar. The gown featured a small train which Colbie matched with black pumps.

We couldn’t find out who the designer of Colbie’s kitschy blue dress is, but we do find the bead work interesting. Here it is in detail:
We don’t see much of light blue sequined dresses being worn by celebrities probably because it’s not a popular color choice. But if you’re looking for a sparkly dress to wear for the holidays that isn’t in the usual black, red, silver or gold hues, try wearing one in blue just like Colbie does. We’ve chosen shorter dresses so they’re versatile enough to wear to any holiday bash:
MinkPink Fireworks Sequin Mini Dress, $118
BCBG MAX AZRIA One Shoulder Dress, $208.80 (was $308)
ABS Allen Schwartz Boatneck Open Back Sheath Dress, $189.99 (was $380)
BCBG MAX AZRIA Pat Ombre Sequin Sheath Dress, $398
Any of these dresses will look great in silver strappies, so take your pick and have a sparkly, party-filled blue Christmas!

Anne Hathaway is making headlines not only because of her new movie Les Miserables but, as everyone well knows, due to a dress mishap which occurred before the film’s New York premiere two days ago.
Recently, however, the actress emerged amidst controversy during a red carpet event and sparkled in a blush slip dress with cascading gold sequins. Anne may have been playing safe with this dress but I’m loving it, especially the sequin fringe detail.

The Sequined Fringe Dress in wrinkled chiffon is from Nina Ricci’s 2013 Spring RTW collection which Anne matched with Stella McCartney strappy stilettos and a Jill Milan clutch. Her make-up was kept at a minimum with nude palettes.
Going back to the dress, the cascade of gold fringe sequins at the front and the soft drapes at the back make this piece utterly feminine while lending an Old Hollywood feel. Here’s the dress in detail:
Nina Ricci Sequined Fringe Dress, for pre-order at about $16,500
It’s a tad difficult to find a dress as detailed as this one (with sequins as fringes) but I’ve found some options you’d want to consider:
Roberto Cavalli Short Dress, $1,150 (was $2,250)
St. John Collection Flared Silk Dress with Sequin Trim, $539.97 (was $1,695)

She’s baaack. Ever since the Black Eyed Peas went on a self-imposed hiatus, we haven’t been hearing much from glamorous diva Fergie. However, she emerged during the recent Cellphones For Soldiers Voli Light Vodka Party at the SkyBar in Los Angeles, California wearing a sparkly red sequin mini dress that looked perfect for the occasion — and the season.

Mrs. Josh Duhamel looked strikingly sexy in her long sleeved Monique Lhuillier mini cocktail dress with patterned allover sequins. She kept her hair and makeup simple and coordinated her dress with a pair of her own Fergalicious by Fergie pumps.

Now these are things we can definitely look forward to next year, so we’ll be seeing more of Fergie then.

Kelly Clarkson’s sunny smile may have seem to spread some warmth in the cold London air as she was spotted leaving the BBC Radio 1 Studios to promote her album Greatest Hits: Chapter One. Not only was her smile dazzling, the multi-awarded singer sparkled in her glittering sequined pea coat.

She might have been elated due to the fact that she just received four Grammy Award nominations for 2013. Kudos to Kelly! I think she’ll snag at least one Grammy (and more hopefully). Incidentally, she’ll be performing along with Rita Ora and One Direction at the X Factor finale this weekend.
Are you loving her pea coat? We’ve got the scoop on her sequined number: it’s a Sequin Boiled Wool Blend Pea Coat from Loft. Double-breasted with a notched lapel and allover small sequins, this sparkly yet snug coat retails at $198.
If you want to shine like Kelly this winter, here are some style options at terrific values:
Sam Edelman Sequin Embellished Coat, $179.98 (was $300)
Alice + Olivia Kata Sequined Pea Coat, $173 (was $495)

It seems like Kristen Stewart is really into sequins and lacy dresses these days. The Twilight star just wrapped up her red carpet rounds for Breaking Dawn 2; this time, we spotted her wearing a lace and sequin gown while attending the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 4th Annual Governors Awards at the Hollywood & Highland Centre in Los Angeles, California.

The actress looked quite stunning in a Talbot Runhof Spring/Summer 2013 dress with a lace bodice and black floor-length fishtail silk skirt. The white lace top is covered with sheer black lace that gives a plunging neckline effect and is embellished with pearls and sequins. Kristen paired her dress with Christian Louboutin heels and went for tousled hair and smoky eyes.
Rumor has it that Kristen is hoping for an Oscar nomination nod for her upcoming movie On The Road, the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel, thus her presence at the AMPAS event. The film premieres in the U.S. on December 21.
Going back to Kristen’s red carpet style, let’s take a quick look at her recent sequined numbers. Tell us which outfit you like best:
From left to right: In Talbot Runhof at the AMPAS; in a gold Elie Saab gown at the Breaking Dawn 2 premiere in Germany; and, in a sheer lace Zuhair Murad jumpsuit at the same movie’s premiere in London
I love the Talbot Runhof creation. It has a romantic and vintage vibe that softens Kristen’s edgy look. How about you?
If you’re looking for some style options that have the look and feel of Kristen’s lace and sequin dress, here’s what I found so far:
Dolce & Gabbana Lace Trim Sequin Dress, for pre-order at $2925
Tadashi Shoji Cap-Sleeve Velvet Gown, $402 (was $670)
