Sharon Stone's Shiny Airport Style: MAJOR Fashion Fail

After the Autumn/Winter 2013 collections championed high-shine punk'd (remember those Versace and Saint Laurent shows?), the high street soon followed and so did women everywhere.

Now, this metallic trend is not for the fashion faint hearted and while Sharon Stone is clearly a fan, there are definite rules to follow to avoid faux pas territory.

The 55 year-old actress was spotted leaving LAX airport Tuesday wearing a gold metallic jacket, a black shirt, monochrome print harem trousers and white brogues minus the laces.

Ok, airport style is not on everyone's agenda and Sharon may not of been on top of her game post flight so this not-so-killer combo is almost forgivable.

all was not lost though, Stone did pull out the celebrity-essential sunglasses and that is definitely lipgloss we spy.

Shiny style success is achievable, and who doesn't love a bit of patent? This look from Sharon was simply not co-ordinated in a way that says cool-confident-edgy.

Fear not, these looks from the American actress are much more credible...
