Bold Baroque

Someone give Jessica Chastain's stylist an Oscar. This chick knew what she was doing when she chose the beautifully ornate black & gold Alexander McQueen dress for Chastain's Oscar appearance on Sunday. The girl looked good. And her dress was so on-trend, it was practically Anna Wintour.

The Baroque theme was definitely apparent elsewhere this week. After fashion week in Milan, there's one thing to take away from all the fabulously elaborate pieces featured on the runways: gold is the new black. Collections by Dolce & Gabbana, Dries Van Noten, Aquilano.Rimondi and Guy Laroche were positively dripping in gold bullion. Golden embellishments and embroidery paid homage to the excessively ornamented time period, known as Baroque.
