Salma Hayek looked simply fabulous last week at the 2012 BAMBI Awards wearing a long, elegant black and gold dress. She paired her festive looking gown with chunky gold bangles, a chain strap clutch and sexy, loose curls. Gold fashion has definitely dominated this season, but the shimmery hue combined with black will easily take you through the holidays in complete style. The flattering combo is so extremely glamorous that the only other accessories you'll need is a pair of pretty gold earrings and some bracelets (if you like). Check out a few of my favorite black and gold dresses to help you get your party on!
