Blake Lively showed off her gorgeous gams in a red leather Isabel Marant mini and caged Christian Louboutin booties at the 12/12/12 benefit concert in NYC. A slew of celebrities have been spotted rocking leather pants, dresses, and jackets, but what we really love about Blake's fierce mini is the intricate stud detailing. Inject a little edge into your holiday style with a red leather dress, studded collar necklace, and nude caged ankle boots or test-drive this studded black leather French Connection sheath ($548) with black patent pumps for a goth-meets-glam take on Blake's red-hot look.
If you are on the hunt for a holiday dress with an extraordinary wow factor, look no further than Anne Hathaway's latest red-carpet look. The brunette beauty styled a sequin Nina Ricci dress with gold Stella McCartney shoes at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC. As if Anne's sparkling separates weren't dazzling enough, she took her flawless look to new heights via a mirrored Jill Milan box clutch, brilliant studs, and a few diamond bracelets. Re-create this glamorous look by pairing one of these eye-catching sequin dresses with strappy gold sandals and a mirrored clutch for a holiday soiree or take it to the max with this flirty sequin Rebecca Taylor mini ($277, originally $395) for New Year's Eve.
Katie Holmes paired her favorite Derek Lam camera bag with matching satin trousers on her way to the Music Box Theater in NYC. The actress worked her festive bottoms with a sheer embroidered blouse, nubby white cardigan, strappy Christian Louboutin pumps, and a black leather tote. Re-create Katie's latest outfit for a lunch date with friends or pair her bottoms with this sequin Ted Baker top ($145) for a stylish holiday party alternative.
Kim Kardashian may have donned this sassy black-and-white ensemble for a Miami lunch date with friends, but we think the chic leather and fringe combo is perfect for the holiday season. Kim layered a white fringe Marni top over a black pleated leather skirt, then slid on a pair of strappy python sandals to take her sexy style to new heights. She kept her accessories simple with a black box clutch, sleek ponytail, and natural makeup. Make a lasting impression at your holiday soiree by working a white fringe top with a black leather skirt and killer black sandals, then complete the look with a red-hot lip for added cheer.
The holidays are just around the corner and we're on the hunt for festive party alternatives, which is why we love the plaid Juicy Couture pants ($140, originally $198) Kristen Stewart sported at the Variety Studio in LA. The actress went low-key working her regal bottoms with a white burnout tee, leather monk-strap shoes, and au natural locks. Style Kristen's printed pants with this red silk Alexander Wang cami ($136, originally $195) and a black blazer for the office party or go bold in this gold sequin Unique top ($200) and suede cobalt pumps.
Every guest will undoubtedly be dressed to the nines when the CFDA and Vogue join forces for a party. Emma Stone did just that at last night's ninth annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in NYC. For the fancy occasion, the actress worked a navy satin bustier top and green sequin skirt, both by Burberry, with black suede Christian Louboutin pumps and Jennifer Meyer jewels. Emma's elegant colorblock number was not only flawless, but the luxurious colors and textures make it perfect for the holidays. Style a navy peplum bustier with a green sequin pencil skirt, cinch it with a black satin belt, then slip on classic pumps to nail Emma's glamorous look for a fashionable holiday season.
