Lily Aldridge has been revealed as the face of Scandinavian online retailer Nelly.com’s Icon collection, and her holiday campaign for the line will make you want to put your party dress on stat — or get a new one. And it’s not just because she’s sharing her 10 ways to "start the party." The dresses are fun, flirty and festive, which makes me wish I had a Christmas fête to go to, like, tonight.
Among Lily’s tips for getting ready and pumped up? Take a power nap ahead of time, work "messy hair that doesn't care," and take some selfies. Sure, they’re not exactly groundbreaking ("glam up with makeup"? What a concept!) but they do have me itching to dance.
Lily’s favorite item from the line: The silver sequin dress. "It's the perfect piece for a Christmas party!” she told the Mail Online. Then again, everything in this video feels like the perfect piece for a Christmas party. I'm coveting the black lace-up booties in particular, because they're stylish and the block heel ensures that you won't be whining about your feet halfway through the night (an absolute must when you're a baby like me.)
The burgundy low-back dress also caught my eye, but then again, I don't think I'd want to engage in a "who wore it better" comparison, because I think the Victoria's Secret model would win.
