THE GOLDEN RULE... from runways to Sophie’s Closet...

Get ready to glitter in gold this fall: gold is one of the predominant colours for the F/W 2010 season. We love the great selection of golden garments from gowns to dresses to pants, as well as bags and shoes, of course. We've broken it down to three distinct looks: the Golden Glam, the Golden Ornament and the Golden Rock. Sophie's Closet is ready to take on the gold with an abundance of amazing accessories for whichever look you choose.


Gianfranco Ferré, Mulberry

We love everything about Gianfranco Ferré's glittery, golden, slinky gown: it's Old Hollywood meets Golden Goddess. A combination of gold and sparkly jewels is classic and utterly irresistible for any glamour girl. These bracelets by Lisa Freede and CC Skye are just perfect for a touch of instant glam. Of course, nothing is more glamourous than the delicate gold and crystal headband by Jennifer Behr.

Lisa Freede Swarovski Crystal Wrap Bracelet (AED 570)

CC Skye Pave Stud Bracelet (AED 1100)

Jennifer Behr Delicate Crystal Scallop in Antique Gold (AED 1100)


Alexander McQueen, Roger Vivier

Everyone was awestruck by Alexander McQueen's posthumous collection. Inspired by Byzantine empresses and religious iconography, golden ornamentation was a focal point of the collection, fit for an empress. McQueen wasn't the only one using golden ornamental accents; Roger Vivier adorned his shoe collection with delicate golden leaves. Naturally, we love a little bit of ornamental excess. In Sophie's Closet, we will be reaching for Rachel Leigh's "Gumball" (it kind of matches the McQueen collection) and CC Skye's "Angel Wing" rings to embellish our fingers. For our wrists, we pick CC Skye's "Dynasty" cuff with multiple ornamental chains. If only we could get away with crowns... we would wear them!

Rachel Leigh "Gumball" Ring (AED 350)

CC Skye "Angel Wing" Ring (AED 570)

CC Skye "Dynasty" Multi Chain Cuff (AED 555)


Balmain, Alexander McQueen

Every season there is an updated take on "rock chic." This year, Balmain's Christophe Decarnin, a leader in edgy, used gold to accent his key pieces. Then there is the always edgy Alexander McQueen zipper bootie, this time adorned with a golden wing (the CC Skye "Angel Wing" ring would go well with this one too). We love accessories that are gold with an edge, like Joomi Lim's studded ring and CC Skye's "Gigi" spiked hoops. Of course, sharp spikes are not always needed for the edgy look: we think Vita Fede's leather and gold "Como" bracelets should do the trick.

Joomi Lim Studded Ring (AED 300)

CC Skye "Gigi" Spike Hoops (AED 495)

Vita Fede "Como" Single Hex (AED 285)
