Make a stand-out entrance with an uber-shiny dress

Draping yourself head-to-toe in reflective, sparkly material can easily be a trainwreck or a riproaring success, but it seems like J.Lo has mastered the ultimate test - pulling off the blingiest dress fabric you've ever seen.

The singer-turned-American Idol host showed up to last night's Grammy Awards in a short, long-sleeved silver dress boasting a deep scooped neckline and geometric sequins. Her matching shiny shoes and clutch only served to enhance the look without overwhelming the eyes.

How did J.Lo manage to be so over-the-top, yet present herself in such a refined manner? We think it could be in part to her super healthy glow, which looked just right against the equally shiny dress fabric. She also didn't fuss too much with her makeup, which she kept fairly neutral.
Any ladies looking to make a standout impression at an upcoming formal event should consider going for the gold (or the silver) with a sparkly dress like J.Lo's. Her long-sleeved short number is a very fashion-forward way to wear this trend, but you can choose from a number of cuts to find the most flattering dress for your figure.
