A-listers dazzle in gilded gowns — but some stars prove golden bling’s just not their thing
Hailey Baldwin and Alexa Chung sizzle (and fizzle) in blingy gold frocks
DASH OF DRAB
Kim credits Kanye for her style evolution, which must explain why she’s not in her usual Kardashian #flauntit mode. The star’s curves are kept under, er, wraps in this shapeless Balmain wraparound, and the billowy sleeves add visual heft. Straighthairdon’t Care. Klearly.
“Looking effortless takes a lot of effort,” says the Brit beauty. In this case, a little more wouldn’t have hurt. With a limp-andlittle black necktie and sleeves that sit too short, this sequined Gucci dress lacks luster.
Jaimie knows what’s hot for fall: a vampy lip, slicked-back hair and metallic hues. But the shoestring straps on this scoop neck Tracy Reese seem to be struggling to hold up the fully embellished frock. The result: a look that skews more saggy than sexy.
The Salem actress casts an enchanting spell in this curvecarving Wes Gordon sheath and sleek matching box clutch. Polishing the look with a bronzed glow and metallic eye shadow? Shine on, Ashley!
ASSETS + ATTITUDE = #IT
Hailey schools on how to slay in three easy steps: (1) Show legs for days in a golden Kayat micro minidress; (2) Place a hand on the hip to highlight curves; (3) Finish with fierce Giuseppe Zanotti strappies. #nailedit.
With a deep plunging V-neck, gaping armholes and a thigh cutout on her Manning Cartell midi, the pageant queen looks dangerously close to red carpet “oops.” One false move and we might see more than she intended.
