Trend Spotting With Kim Kardashian: Stay Gold

When it comes selecting your New Year’s Eve party look, there are some rules that almost always apply:

NYE Rule No. 1: Blind fellow party-goers with your shine, sparkle, shimmer and/or bold color palette.

NYE Rule No. 2: Step outside of your comfort zone to maximize your glam factor. Options include big, teased hair, fake lashes, glittery or shimmery makeup, stilettos, a shorter hem line and big, sparkly jewelry.

While these two pointers can help guide your New Year’s Eve wardrobe choices every year, there are some styles I have spotted this year in particular…

Gold has found its way onto nearly every red carpet in the past month. This year’s gold, however, is more neutral and less saturated with color. Rosario Dawson’s short, asymmetrical golden gown would be lovely in almost any New Year’s Eve setting. Bijou Phillips also opts for a muted gold gown—hers with flirty ruffles.

You can also be a golden girl in canary yellow. I am absolutely in love with Eva Mendes’ strapless yellow gown with beads and gold details (pictured above). I can tell Mendes is fond of the color as she wore it in this chiffon, ruffled version—so bold and chic!

Other shades showing their colors this season are silver, blue and black—which never goes out of style! I am mesmerized by Marisa Tomei’s electric blue dress, which could light up any NYE party. Ciara looks amazing in silver with a touch of black. And Kate Winslett goes ultra glam in her little black dress with a sparkling strap detail!

However you decide to amp up your look this year, I hope all of you stay gold in 2009!
