Yes, it's barely November, but by now we should all be resigned to the fact that it's basically Christmas. As such, we need to start planning accordingly — and lucky for us, Olivia Munn has totally got us covered. Tuesday night marked the premiere for the final (nooo!) season of The Newsroom , and Olivia Munn came dressed to the nines in her best Yuletide apparel.
A tad puzzling, but hey — I'm certainly not complaining! Olivia can wear her Christmas frippery year-round if she wants, especially if she keeps on doing it with this much aplomb. Her outfit hits all the right notes — the silver and gold beading in the dress are picked up so nicely by her accessories (and nail polish), but she kept things from sliding too angelic porcelain doll-esque by mixing it up with a slightly undone, textured ponytail and some super rad neon lipstick.
I think Munn's discovered the secret to Christmas, everyone: You can keep it as classic/on the nose as you want with the wardrobe, as long as you add in a touch of unexpected flair with the styling. Here, she's serving up full "White Christmas" with a side of Candy Yum Yum — and it's kind of perfect: So let's steal her look!
Go for something retro — lacy with a full skirt's optimal (and gorgeous metallic beading is even more optimal, if you can find it).

As for shoes, you're going to want to go for something point-toed and metallic. Olivia's have more of a satin finish, but I love these ultra-shiny pumps!

Clutches are a lot of fun — especially when they're metallic and retro-ly boxy.

Come on, gold nail polish is a holiday must.

You're going to want something seriously high-impact to help balance out all of the twee, and the NARS Audacious line is a good place to start. That said, if you're looking for something at a lower price point, MAC Candy Yum Yum or Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipcolor in Hot Plum are also great slightly-purplish fuchsias.
