Gold is taking over and we’re not just talking about jewelry. We’re talking about the gold structural pieces that have been popping up at award shows and fashion weeks. These gold pieces look like true works of art and they really show off the body’s shape. Celebrities can’t seem to get enough of the gold structure trend and here are some of our favorite looks to date.

Cardi B

The “WAP” singer wore gold breastplates, a gold necklace, and a gold helmet that doubled as sunglasses by Schiaparelli while strolling the streets of Paris with her partner Offset. She gave off total superhero vibes.


When it comes to trends, Zendaya is a trailblazer and she wore a gold piece from Loewe’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection straight off the runway from Paris Fashion Week at the Women in Film Awards. It was very reminiscent of the pink, structural Tom Ford gown she wore to the Critics Choice Awards in January 2020.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra wore a Dolce & Gabbana sheer dress, leaving little to the imagination at the Billboard Music Awards. The finishing touch to the jaw-dropping look was the gold corset belt.

Violet Chachki

Drag queen Violet Chachki looked ’80s chic in a Schiaparelli outfit with gold embellished details and matching gold gloves for the “Mistress Violet”. It’s so cool that we’re not sure where to look.

Bella Hadid

The model wore this stunning Schiaparelli gown at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival which features a fitted black wool dress with a plunging neckline that was covered by a gold, rhinestone organs necklace. Does it get more high-fashion?
