Your prom is a special night you're going to remember for the rest of your life. And your dress has to hold up to the same level of expectations as you have for the entire evening. A gold prom dress can give you the dazzling look that you're looking for.
The History of Gold Dresses
It's known that Egyptian pharaohs were very fond of using gold in their clothing. The Tutankhamon's tomb was found to have several pairs of gold sandals. This is why most Cleopatra movies feature gold dresses and lots of gold jewelry.
Then, between 1300 and 1400, European nobles would often dress in wool and silk dresses that were decorated with gold. Since then, several actresses have taken center stage with luscious gold dresses on the big screen. Some of the most notable on-screen gold dress moments include Theda Bara wearing a gold-plated bralette-style top while playing Cleopatra in 1917, Marilyn Monroe wearing a gold-plated dress in Men Prefer Blondes in 1953, Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra in 1963, and Beyonce's gold jumpsuit in Austin Powers in 2002.

The Color Psychology of Gold
Why is gold such a compelling color? The color gold gives us the impression of luxury, wealth, and prestige. It's said to make people feel positive, generous, and compassionate. And, a person who loves to wear gold, is typically self-confident, charismatic, creative, and enjoys respect and attention from others.
Why Choose A Gold Prom Dress?
Gold is the color of winners. When someone competes for a medal, gold is always the first prize. Gold dresses add sparkle and light to any occasion, making you stand out from the rest. And, gold is a complementary color for all kinds of skin tones.
Gold dresses also make any style of dress look more glamorous and prestigious. Gold can elevate a short dress to look more formal. Gold can also be subtle, with the color adding enough sparkle on its own. You can choose a gold prom dress that is shiny gold, a metallic gold, or a muted gold. You can wear a gold prom dress on its own and shine the whole night. Or, you can further upgrade the outfit by combining your gold prom gown with complementary jewelry.
You can expect short gold prom dresses to make you stand out from everyone else at the high school. And, even if you typically don't strive for the spotlight, on a magical night like your prom, you definitely should!
When you're picking out your prom dress just make sure you feel confident and beautiful in it, and that the style and color of the dress are a reflection of your style.
Gold dresses aren't just for prom either. A beautiful gold dress is a perfect choice for any special occasion like a homecoming, winter formal, military balls, pageants, sweet 16 parties, and any other celebratory day.
From prom to weddings, gold is a neutral shade that makes quite the bang on multiple skin tones. Created in designs from ball gowns, mermaid silhouettes, fit and flares and more formal dresses are great for multiple skin complexions.
