Hey hey!
So a lot of recent events caused red carpets to roll, and it seems the urban gliterrati decided to bring back the metallic trend for fall. Let’s take a look…
Sweet singer Tweet makes a statement…


… in a thigh length shimmery sequined frock paired with boots.
And actress Denise Boutte…

…recently channeled Tina Turner in a hot gold sequined cocktail.
Gorgeous acress Kerry Washinton opted for silver…
… but went for a more demure v-neck wrap dress and matching metallic sandals.
While Eva the Diva…

..stunted in an almost plastic looking strapless with sky high shoes.
Songstress Chrisette Michelle…
…went all brassy in a cute yet conservative dress.
And uber designer Tracy Reese…

…offered just a punch of silver in her jacket and t-strapped shoes.
Want the look? I of course have a few suggestions.
