Inspired By: Balmain Gold Dress

Balmain has broken fashion records with this gold dress from their fall 2010 collection. The Balmain gold dress has appeared on an unprecedented 7 magazine covers, including numerous Vogue magazines, Harper’s Bazaar UK and Elle UK (shown below). It is obviously THE dress of the season! While we love the sexy gold dress, unfortunately most of us can’t afford the $31,000 price tag. We have found some affordable gold dress options inspired by Balmain offering the same high glam effect but for a fraction of the price. Let us know what you think .
