From see-through dresses to egg carriages, the red carpet at the Grammys is always full of surprises. It’s the one awards show where both girls and guys dare to be bold. It’s a competition to see who can pull off the most daring, most unusual style, and sometimes, weirdness trumps all. It’s the one time where celebrities attempt looks they wouldn’t try on a normal day in Hollywood.
But, despite all of the outrageous attire, the red carpet was full of bombshell beauties rockin’ a few stylish trends. At the 2011 Golden Globes, we saw a lot of neutral tones and one-shoulder dresses. But, at the Grammys, it was all about standing out in bold metallic gowns.
Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Leaan Rimes, to name a few, rocked the look in their own unique way. Now it’s your turn to gain some inspiration from this glamorous red carpet trend by pulling in a stylish metallic dress or two into your spring-summer wardrobe:
