Carolina Herrera Strapless Metallic Dress

Carolina Herrera Strapless Metallic Dress

If you can afford it, this classic gold sheath is a gorgeous attention-grabber. The bareness on top is balanced by a classy knee-length, and while I'm not usually one for beading, the detail at the bust adds to an overall look of luxury and class. Worn with slick heels, little to no jewelry, and a simple up-do, this baby can outshine a floor-length gown in a heartbeat. ($3490 at Bergdorf Goodman)
