Let Suki Waterhouse At The Evening Standard Awards (And Other Celebs) Inspire Your Holiday Party Dress This Season
It's difficult to dress for a holiday party because there are just so many different options in terms of an outfit. You can opt for the classic red or green dress, matching with the colors of the season, or you can just go with head-to-toe sequins because, for whatever reason, that's acceptable during this time of year (I'm not questioning it). Do you go for a flirty skirt and top combination or a floor-length, ultra sexy and simple number? SO. MANY. CHOICES. But put aside all that confusion, because your holiday party style inspiration is officially here. If there's anyone who knows how to put together a great head-to-toe look, it's celebrities like Suki Waterhouse and Naomi Campbell. Wondering how to translate Waterhouse and Campbell's red carpet Evening Standard Awards looks into a realistic holiday dress? No problem.
No matter what your style, there's a holiday dress out there for you. And even if you don't need any celebrity style inspiration to put together an extra special look for that Christmas or New Year's Eve party, staring at pretty dresses can never hurt, am I right? From Anna Kendrick to Naomi Campbell to Anna Wintour to, of course, Suki Waterhouse, there was holiday style inspiration for everyone at the Evening Standard Awards.
Modern day Cinderella anyone? This look is soft, feminine and understated—in a totally chic way. It's not your typical holiday dress, of course, but that's kind of the best part.
This option from Topshop echoes the sheer effect of Suki's gown, but in a darker color. Pair with black leather booties or oxfords with gold jewelry accents for a casual holiday get together look that's 100 percent chic.

All hail the queen, am I right? Also — New Years Eve look, anyone?
This dress is the shorter twin of Naomi's gown, which makes it way easier to dance in. A girl can't complain.

This look is just slightly more conservative than Naomi's gold number, but it's still super pretty. It's hard not to be obsessed with Anna Kendrick in any case.
If you're headed to a more conservative holiday party (maybe a work function?), this teal, strapless midi dress is the perfect mix of sexy and simple.

Even though Wintour is a major symbol for the fashion world, it seems like most people aren't taking inspiration from her red carpet looks — but that should change this holiday season.
Try looking for a metallic jacquard print dress and throw a faux fur jacket over the top—you'll immediately feel like a million bucks.

Pink and purple florals may seem more like a spring look than a holiday look, but I love how Miller switched things up a bit here and made a super gorgeous statement with this gown.
No matter what the season, feminine and gorgeous is always a good option. Pair with some super sassy shoes to add some edge to the look.
