Red Carpet Trend Report: The Scoop on Metallic Heels, Sheer Inserts and Sleeves Only Stevie Nicks Could Pull Off

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw shiny soles, sexy sheer inserts and a dress with sleeves to sweep off the red carpet.

Up: Metallic Heels. Although metallic gowns were a major moment at the Grammys, some of our favorite ladies were wearing the trend on their feet this week. Emma Roberts (left) added some eye-catching metallic accents to her outfit at the Stand Up to Cancer Event with a rose gold Rebecca Minkoff clutch and matching Casadei heels. Rihanna selected some gold pumps to keep with the theme of her metallic Lanvin look while promoting her MAC Cosmetics collaboration. Reese Witherspoon also added some sheen to her feet while showing off her great figure in an orange Roland Mouret dress.

Up: Sheer Inserts. We love sheer inserts because they give a little sex appeal to even the most modest girl — without having it all hang out. Colbie Caillat and Beyonce both wore sheer panels with floral embellishments to the Grammy Awards. Instead of going for a basic crop-top, Chrissy Teigen (center) opted for an Adeam top with panels and matching pencil skirt. Camila McConaughey also sported white sheer panels in her strapless Pamela Rolland gown at the London Premiere of Dallas Buyers Club.

Down: Fringe Sleeves. We know many are in mourning for the end of American Horror Story: Coven — but Molly Sims took that to a whole new level. For her own little Stevie Nicks homage, the model wore a black shift dress with some intense fringed sleeves. While we appreciate her fashion risk with this larger-than-life arm decor, maybe we should leave the fringe to Misty Day. (All you AHS fans will appreciate that one!)
