One way to really embrace the trend is to wear metallics from head to toe like Aluna Francis of indie duo AlunaGeorge did at the Elle Style Awards. Her ice blue V-neck shift was given a youthful touch with silver brogues. AnnaSophia Robb wore a pair of rose gold Stuart Weitzman ‘Naughty’ pumps to the H&M Denim Days event. Her shoes coordinated perfectly with her sparkly jacket—swap the light wash denim and slouchy white top for black denim or leather, and this outfit could easily become a glam evening look. Diane Kruger's styling was on-point at the premiere of The Host where she added some bling to her black dress with a pair of silver gladiator sandals by Jimmy Choo, proving how much more stand-out a pair of metallic heels are compared to a standard black or nude pump. Julianne Hough was a fancy lady at a screening of Safe Haven in NYC, continuing the monochrome lines of her dove grey dress and cigarette pants down to her pointy silver Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. At the Warm Bodies premiere, Teresa Palmer’s futuristic silver, white and plastic Louboutin sandals gave her all-white separates just the trendy touch they needed.
