The little black dress has long been the reigning queen of late-night fashion. But we're predicting it might soon be dethroned by the little metallic dress. Exhibit A: This look from Riverdale star Camila Mendes, who rocked the Vanity Fair and Max Mara Women in Film party looking like she stepped out of Studio 54 in a brilliant gold lamé, deep-V minidress by Alberta Ferretti.

Since the best metallic looks aren't about subtlety, Mendes gilded the lily with metallic heels by Giuseppe Zanotti, gold hoops, and even a bronzy-gold smoky eye. "Felt like a human disco ball last night," Mendes mused on Instagram the next day. Spoken like a true golden girl.
