MEET THE golden girls

Lindsay Lohan's choice of a flimsy gold dress for the LA premiere of her new film Liz & Dick has divided the fashion critics. Yet whatever you think about 26-year-old Lohan's slip-style dress with gaping, diamond-shaped holes in the front, the star is bang on with her choice of the colour gold.

She plays legendary screen icon Liz Taylor in her new movie and by wearing a shimmering gold Donna Dashini dress to the film's premiere in Beverly Hills earlier this week, actress Lohan showed that her style sense is well tuned to what's hot at the moment.

You could say the season of all things gold kicked off last Sunday with the American Music Awards in Los Angeles when Taylor Swift was among the stars who turned up in striking gold.

The 22-year-old singer wore a lacy Zuhair Murad mini dress, which was embellished with gold beads.

Blonde supermodel Heidi Klum (39) showed off her stunning legs in a knock-out gold brocade dress designed by Alexandre Vauthier.

Elisha Cuthbert (29), who starred in TV show 24, wore a floor-length, strapless gold gown which she styled with dangly gold earrings and a slicked-back hairdo. TV personality Phoebe Price (34) attended the 40th American Music Awards last Sunday in a metallic gold-sequinned dress.

Also this week, actress Kristen Stewart (22) chose a floor-length metallic gold sleeveless dress with a slit up the side for the Berlin premiere of her new Twilight movie.

Helen Mirren (67) wore a gold and black lace dress and gold dangly earrings to the premiere of her new movie Hitchcock in which she plays the film director's wife Alma Reville opposite Anthony Hopkins.

While Derry singer Nadine Coyle (27) also mixed gold with black in her fishtail dress when she performed with her Girls Aloud bandmates at the Royal Variety Performance last Monday.

There is no missing the fact that the season of all things gold is well under way.
