A glittering metallic brocade column dress from Catherine Malandrino's Holiday/Resort 2011 line is getting quite the red carpet workout this summer.

The gorgeous gold gown first showed up on Malandrino herself at the CFDA Awards in June. Ten days later, the strapless dress with ruching on the bust and a deep slit down the front popped up on Malandrino's bestie and co-collaborator Mary J. Blige, who wore a silvery version at a benefit for her FFAWN organization at New York City's Cipriani.

Then on Aug. 24, Elle magazine cover girl Drew Barrymore chose the gold floor-skimming dress for a screening of her new romantic comedy, "Going the Distance," at the Hollywood Theatre in Los Angeles.

While Malandrino, who debuted a pair of eco-friendly totes last spring, kept her accessories minimal -- a metallic bag, bracelet, and silver shoes -- Blige and Barrymore added a bit more dazzle.

Singer/perfumer Blige opted for fringed drop earrings, a patterned bracelet, an envelope clutch, and mustard-colored shoes, while Barrymore toughened up her look by cinching her waist with a bold black and gold belt paired with a slithering serpent-shaped cuff, big beaded hoop earrings, and gray suede platform pumps.

Who rocked the dress the best?
