When it comes to metallics, gold will always win first prize. One can never go wrong with a touch of Midas in your wardrobe. 

A few years ago we were obsessed with rose gold. Silver, on the other hand, has always come in third when it comes to metallics - up until now. 

Silver is finally having it’s moment to shine!

Just take a look at what Jennifer Lopez’s wore to this year's MTV Video music awards. Like a silver goddess, she wore the colour from head to toe. Yes. Even her toenails were painted silver.

In fact, Jlo wasn’t the only one to wear the futuristic colour on the VMA red carpet.

Silver is so big right now that it’s popping up on the make-up scene as well.

Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty has recently added a sliver highlighter called "KillaWatt" to her collection.

Here are few other celebs rocking sliver:
