It's one thing, wearing floor-length gold in a figure-hugging gown, but it's another to look like you're oozing gold out of every single pore. That's how Jessica Alba appeared for last night's Golden Butterfly Awards, looking like an Oscar statue, except with better hair.

It's tricky to know where her gold dress ends and that gilded, tawny skin begins, as a trace of shimmer gave a light-reflecting burst to her natural olive tone. This is how to bare skin for summer, lacing limbs with highlighter, which adds a subtle sculpting effect and a freshness to the look.

Meanwhile, she gave a good lesson in working the season's metallic trend, by pairing up a light gold tone with a demi-matte finish. The Romona Keveza creation boasted a flattering shape with a fishtail skirt, and looked positively goddess-like against her golden glow.

So, will you be giving gold a go after Jessica's beautiful demonstration? Let us know in the comments below or tweet us @CosmopolitanUK.
