If Kristen Stewart and Jessica Biel opted for combo dresses at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, Disney’s Chelsea Kane Staub literally went combo in a dazzling sequined skirt paired with a soft silky top.

The look was chic and surprisingly appropriate for the event.

Well, I say surprisingly because under normal circumstances, the minute you wear the top and skirt ensemble, you immediately look less formal or less dressy, and we’re talking about a red carpet event here.

However, Chelsea’s choice of the skirt (a sequin) and the top did the trick. Picking a gold and white combination also kept the outfit looking classy.

In December 2010, Chelsea Staub officially changed her professional name to Chelsea Kane.

Known by her family and friends as just Chelsea Kane, she decided to make the switch after her Disney series Jonas L.A. ended on October 3, 2010. Kane is also easier than Staub to pronounce.

“Helped and hurt. Like I think a lot of people are super confused; I’ve been congratulated on my marriage, and then when they spot me out with someone else it’s like, “Ugh, how dare you” I’m like, “I was never married!” So I think a lot of people are like, “Wait, I’m confused — are you Chelsea Staub? What’s going on?” But for me, I like it because it just feels more like me,” she told BuzzFeed about the name change in January 2015.

“A lot of my friends have always called me Kane. It was a weird transition and kind of crazy, but I’m glad I did it. And now that it’s sinking in, it just feels more like me,” the American actress and singer added.

What can I say, you can always trust a sequin to keep you looking glam. Of course, wearing a sequin skirt requires care. The skirt will glitter and shine so make sure you can afford the attention on your hips and legs.

Also make sure you choose the right top and keep everything else toned down, just like Chelsea did. If you like Chelsea’s style, the skirt she is wearing is by Plastic Island.
