Mary J. Blige and Drew Barrymore are making sure that a glittering metallic brocade column dress from Catherine Malandrino's Holiday/Resort 2011 line is getting quite the red carpet workout this summer.

Our pals at StyleList noticed that the gorgeous gold gown first showed up on Malandrino herself at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards in June. Ten days later, the strapless dress 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.
