Red Carpet Trendwatch: Metallic Dresses at the Grammys

02/12/2007 at 10:00 AM ET

Forget the blinged out watches and medallions — the real sparkle on the red carpet came from the sequined metallic dresses that ruled the red carpet. From Vanessa’s silver sequins to Hilary’s sexy gold Dolce & Gabanna to Fergie’s shimmering steel Badgley Mischka, short and shiny was the major look of the night. Even for the ladies who didn’t wear it head to toe, metallic accents popped up on Nelly Furtado, Beyonce and many more. The key to making the look work? Keeping the hemlines above the knee and accessories to a minimum. Tell us: What do you think of the metallic dresses? Is this a trend you would try?

Vanessa looks acceptable, nothing special. Hilary looks like crap. I hated her hair!! It’s too dark for her, and it looks like she didn’t style it or anything. It looks like my hair when I just get out of the shower and let it air dry (not pretty)! But her dress is pretty.. and Fergie looks hot.

Fergie and Vanessa look amazing. I would def. wear this look it’s so sexy and fun. But I think Hilary looks hideous. She is way too pale for that blackish hair of hers, and it looks terrible, like she stuck her finger in a light socket. She’s a classy girl but in this pic she looks like a munster!

I like Vanessa and Fergie’s look…for once, Fergie doesn’t look like a she-man crossover. But Hilary Duff…that look is horrible for her. I’m not sure if it’s the dress (least favorite out of the 3) but she needs a tan and she needs to lose that jet-black goth hair of hers…and maybe run a comb through it.

Break-ups are tough, but… comb your hair, Hilary!
