Emmy Rossum shined bright at the 21st annual "A Night at Sardi's" gala benefiting the Alzheimer's Association, and it had everything to do with her gilded look. The actress — who has admitted to not working with a stylist — didn't show any signs of personal-style shortcomings, taking a strong head-to-toe stance on shades of gold. For those of us that find Spring's metallic trend a little daunting, Rossum's ensemble provides a little (or a lot) of inspiration to cull from, and here's how.

Instead of going the sexier high-shine route, the brunette beauty chose a gold sequin-covered Tory Burch tea-length dress from the designer's Spring '13 collection. The longer hemline provided an immediate ladylike effect, and rather than shying away from the eye-catching hue, she added equally cool gold Jimmy Choo sandals, gold bangles, and gold drop earrings into the mix. While it's a bold styling approach, notice that aside from the statement dress, she went with gold add-ons that complemented the central outfit piece rather than with accessories that overwhelmed. Rossum's commitment to gold-hued glamour is admirable and certainly something to emulate, but we know not everyone is ready to dive in head first. If you want to approach with caution, try styling a crisp white top with a muted gold pencil skirt, gold stud earrings, and a gold watch. For everything else, see our editors' shopping picks below.
