Kate Bosworth Understands the Power of a Little Gold Dress

In a world where little black, little white and little red dresses have become the stuff of fashion legends, some of the other colors don't get nearly enough credit. Take gold, for instance: if Holly Golightly had gone window shopping in a sparking champagne Givenchy gown, would Breakfast at Tiffany's still be so famous? Would we still love The Seven Year Itch had Marilyn Monroe worn gold-colored pleats over that sidewalk grate? Could Jessica Rabbit look just as sexy in head-to-toe metallics? I say yes, yes and yes.

Kate Bosworth, it seems, also agrees that little gold dresses are worthy of wearing outside of New Year's Eve and Gatsby-themed parties. For her spot on Chelsea Lately last night, embedded below, the actress/designer/fashion-icon-of-near-Kate-Moss-status appeared in a distractingly pretty brass-hued shift. You and I both need to order something similar now to make all our (black, white and red dress-wearing) friends jealous; click through following slideshow for five great options online.
