The Thanksgiving leftovers are completely gone, the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals have been found, and the calendar is about to flip to the last month of 2023. That’s right; The holiday season is officially in full swing! Like me, you are no doubt trying to sort through your busy schedule and plan a plethora of company parties, school events, family reunions and other festive celebrations. Of course, once you’ve sorted out the logistics, there’s only one logical next question: “What should I do?” carry?”
Luckily for all of us, celebrities are back out in full force promoting their latest projects, with plenty of fashion outings for awards season already underway, along with magazine bashes, talk show appearances, red carpet premieres, and so on. These appearances brought with them some truly standout celebrity style moments that have inspired my holiday attire and are sure to give you inspiration too. Below are 7 outfits you can use when preparing for your next holiday soiree:

Margot Robbie continued her series of Barbie-inspired outfits with a Prada ensemble inspired by a 1964 Barbie doll. The look was enchanting from head to toe, but what attracted me most was the evening cape, a unique addition to the traditional evening outfit that I recommend to you.
Lupita Nyong’o stuns with silver

The premiere of Beyoncé’s Renaissance film was a fashion festival full of silver and chrome, as Lupita Nyong’o exemplified in her silver sequin blazer dress. Sequins and metallics are perfect for the holiday season, and I think a blazer dress with opaque tights makes for a chic party look.

Zooey Deschanel always knows how to look stunning in classic, retro style, and this look at the Baby2Baby Gala is no exception. A black velvet dress paired with tights and Mary Janes will always be a winning holiday look, and sparkling details like crystal jewelry and a belt give it that extra finishing touch.
Greta Gerwig impresses in winter white

Greta Gerwig showed how to elegantly wear beautiful white winter clothes at the Gotham Awards. The key is finding the right shade of white (yes, there are many shades of white) for your skin tone and balancing the look with accent colors. She turned it into a perfect holiday look by wearing a moody dark red lip.
Olivia Rodrigo feels the edge

If you’re getting ready for an outing that requires dancing, you can’t go wrong with a fringe dress like the one Olivia Rodrigo wore to the GQ Men of the Year bash. After all, fringes provide incredible movement like no other fabric.
Vanessa Kirby rocks the red

There’s nothing prettier than bright red this holiday season. Even if you don’t dress as chic as Vanessa Kirby above at the Napoleon premiere, I recommend you look for bold red if you need a new holiday piece, be it a red dress, a suit, a handbag, or just the perfect red lipstick.
Emma Stone wears an evening suit

For those who prefer suits over dresses, Emma Stone showed how to wear a stylish suit for the evening. The secret lies in the tailoring: Emma wears a slim leg and ankle cut that shows off her chic stilettos. She also chose to wear a low-cut blazer with just a hint of a lace shirt peeking through to make the look more evening-appropriate.
