The red carpet fashion at last night’s 2011 Grammy Awards did not disappoint! From Lady Gaga’s egg-shaped contraption, J. Lo’s spikey Louboutins, and Katy Perry’s freaky angel wings, we were smiling and sometimes laughing at the crazy garments celebrities chose for the Grammys. One trend in particular stood out in the fashion dept which we predict will be very strong for 2011: gold. Some good examples of celebs who wore this trend flawlessly are Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, and Grammy winner Miranda Lambert (other notable mentions include our client Leann Rimes, and Nicole Kidman).
Derived from the previously hot ‘nude’ trend, gold is back with all its shimmery glam and we are extremely enthused about it! Just like on red carpet dresses, gold works perfectly (if done well) with designer swimwear. An we’re not talking tacky plasticky gold fabric, but fine, delicate shimery gold with a soft inner lining. Case in point: the Gypsy Gold ruffle by OndadeMar Swimwear.
This sizzling established brand meshes the sophisitication of ruffles with the chicness of gold fabric in a bandeau swimsuit. The Gypsy Gold is also available in black. The signature ruffles in this suit gives an earthy flowy feeling, and the hipster swimsuit bottom finishes off the look with bohemian simplicity.
A good thing to know about this suit is that the ruffles stop at the hipline and the rear features the solid hipster with ease and comfort.
Take it from us red carpet gals, if you’re hitting the beach or pool, bring along your chic style with a gold bikini!
