All That Glitters Is Gold Clothing
The most ductile (read: able to be stretched into a thin wire) and most malleable (read: able to be thinned into extremely fine sheets) of all metals, gold has held the fascination of thousands of generations. Just as flexible and as captivating as the precious ore, gold garments have clothed women through the ages.
Let us take you through a history of iconic gold garment moments to inspire you to throw on some of your own.
The sex symbol’s floor-length dress in the 1953 movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” was so form-fitting (she had to be sewn into it) and so dramatically plunging that it created a scandal. Joan Crawford supposedly saw her in it and called her “vulgar” (green-eyed monster, anyone?). You can cause a stir, too, in a shimmery gold plunge halterneck top with black skinny jeans.
Was there ever a more regal moment than Liz Taylor sitting upright on that throne in the 1963 movie “Cleopatra”, gold feathers sheathing her shoulders and gold leaves framing her face? Suddenly her iconic bold eyebrows had nothing on that gold headdress and 24-karat cape, intricately designed to resemble phoenix wings. You can channel her look with a gold cardigan.
If you’re more provocative than either of these classic sex symbols, then your golden moment lies in Madonna’s sexually-charged 1990 “Blonde Ambition” tour. The Jean Paul Gaultier gold bustier she wore jump-started the trend of underwear as outerwear. Push the limits in a gold corset, paired with an asymmetric jacket, metallic leggings and platform shoes.
Whether she was shimmying up a satin rope in a golden gown, or strutting through bedrooms and shedding gold jewelry like it was spare change, Charlize Theron made those Dior commercials stick in our minds long after we had seen them. Who wouldn’t want to be dripping in gold after seeing that kind of dramatic sexiness? Go for a gold maxi dress to pick up where she left off.
You’ve been sitting on a gold mine this entire time and you didn’t even know it—who could guess gold clothing was so valuable? Enrich your wardrobe now in a gold top, dress or even corset.
