From Gold-Encrusted Editorials to Midas Touch Portraits

 - May 17, 2012
These electrifying gilded looks reveal a preoccupation with metallic fabrics and finishes in the fashion industry. Designers prefer glistening designs for several reasons, in large part due to their eye-catching qualities. These pieces are all memorable in their own right, sending shocks of gleaming light to chic blog frequenters and the ticket holders of front row Fashion Week seats.

Gold-encrusted editorials and Midas touch portraits have dotted the pages of publications like Vogue, Elle and Vanity Fair. Enthusiasts in this realm favor the bright displays provided by way of these ensembles, and have frequently sought them out in an effort to make memorable statements. While these pieces do speak volumes, several of them have also been muted with subtler studs and embellishments, offering the fore to more modest looks.
