All that glitters is gold, especially if they’re gold sequins. 24 star Katee Sackhoff showed off her 24K style in a black mini dress with gold sequins and a feather skirt at the 2013 Miss Golden Globe Awards hosted by the HFPA and InStyle at Cecconi’s, West Hollywood, California.

Although her ensemble looked like it matched the awards night’s color theme of gold and black, I’m still liking the sequins and feather skirt combination. We still don’t have deets on the dress’ designer but here’s a closer look at the gold sequins:
Nice interplay of gold square paillettes and gold mesh accents on the shoulders and front of the dress.
For style options, I found this really cool dress from ASOS:
April May Party Dress with Feather Skirt, $518.91 (was $1,169.73)
Add a silver clutch to this dress and you’ll get the look down pat.

Breaking away from her usual bright and colorful outfits, Katy Perry appeared enigmatic in a deep blue Naeem Khan gown at the 8th Annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street, New York City last November 27.

The sequin-embellished gown is an exquisite piece by Naeem Khan whose aesthetics often veer toward fully embellished evening wear. Part of the designer’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, the gown features a sheer cutout column with floral patterns, a flowing chiffon cape and cinched beaded waist.
For her part, Katy did the gown justice and she matched it with Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a Judith Leiber clutch and Guiseppi Zanotti shoes. I have one concern though: her hair and makeup. With such a statement dress, I wish she toned down her look a bit. She wore her hair straight with a center part, but I think she might have looked better in a simple updo (which can also highlight the ornate drop earrings she wore). Nevertheless, I love the gown and it showed off Katy’s curves quite nicely.
If you want to go deep, dark and mysterious like Katy, delve into this selection that features cutout patterns and sequin embellishments replete with elegance and drama:
David Meister Sequin Pattern Racerback Gown, $648
Tadashi Shoji Sequin Lace Off Shoulder Gown, $428
JS Collections Sheer Back Sequin Chiffon Gown, $338
Style Tip: Drape a chiffon shawl to add more drama.

In every red carpet event, expect to see a lot of sparkle, shine…and sequins! That’s why during the recent 2012 American Music Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California, we easily spotted some of our favorite music artists and celebrities in sequined numbers. From short cocktail dresses to floor length gowns donned by the stars, the event was truly a shimmering spectacle.
Pale pink and nude appeared to be the colors of choice but we also saw some pops of color. Let’s open the envelope and reveal the winning looks:
The romantic crooner charmed everyone with her fashion choice: a nude bead- and sequin-adorned mini dress with sheer long sleeves designd by Zuhair Murad. We love the soft touch of sheer lace and flower pattern embellishments. Taylor paired her shimmering dress with strappy Jimmy Choos and added more bling with Neil Lane jewels. Her makeup was light and airy and her hair was done in a simple updo.
Ginnifer emerged on the red carpet looking cute and pixie-like with her pale pink short sequin cocktail dress by Oscar de la Renta from the Resort 2013 collection. Its sequin beadwork is done in an interesting pattern of overlapping curves while the dress’ pink hemmed sleeves and skirt add a playful touch. The actress matched her sequin creation with Jimmy Choo shoes and a Judith Leiber clutch.
One of the night’s presenters, Hayden graced the event in a white Giorgio Armani mini dress with spaghetti straps, tiny pleats and rows of pearlescent sequins. The Nashville star’s hair was swept up in a classy bun and her luminous makeup gave her a sweet glow. Satin Giuseppe Zanotti platform peep toes and a Giorgio Armani clutch provided the final touches to her stylish look.
Carly Rae Jepsen
Carly Rae went home a winner by bagging the New Artist of the Year award at the AMAs. And a winner she truly was in her floor length fully-sequined Gomez-Gracia halter gown. The pink number was perfect for the singer — not too revealing yet hardly boring. For accessories, she chose to wear Brian Atwood shoes and an Edie Parker clutch. We even spotted more shimmer on her glittery nails. How cute is that?
Also receiving a Favorite Country Album award for Blown Away, Carrie Underwood was the epitome of elegance as she walked the red carpet in a sequined purple gown with a small train by Abed Mahfouz. The intricate sequin pattern, high neck and cap sleeves was a fitting choice for the country winner. A gold Jill Milan clutch complemented her gown.
We couldn’t resist adding our wild card, South Korean superstar Park Jae-sang a.k.a. Psy, and his sequined outfit. The picture on the left shows him wearing a pair of sequined pants with a leather tuxedo coat and classic oxfords. He changed into a pair of hammer pants and a sequined jacket (seen at right hamming it up with MC Hammer). Together, they closed the show with a surprise number — a mash-up of Gangnam Style/Too Legit To Quit.
Cheers to the winners!
