Neutrals and matalics have long been a part of my routine, and I love Chanel's Paradoxal as a metalic.The half moon look is amazing! I would definitely try it, and I think it would be perfect for a black tie function.
I like the metallics. The other stuff...NO WAY! I have seen some people with things like it, and I am so transfixed I can't hold a conversation with them. What in the world!
