Celeb outfits that are perfect for New Year's Eve. See pics
From Alia Bhatt’s shimmering gown to Deepika Padukone’s timeless black dress, here's a bunch of really good celebrity looks — five to be exact — that are perfect for ringing in 2020. Try one of the styles ahead, and you're guaranteed to be the best-dressed at any event.
Twenty-twenty is all about new goals and intentions, but before moving on, it's time to kiss 2019 goodbye. Between now and January 1, chances are you will be attending a few festive soirees — whether that's a work event, BFF shindig, New Year's Eve bash, or all of the above. Translation: You're going to need at least one — if not a few — gorgeous outfits. While you could easily revert to the same old cocktail dress you've worn forever, why not have a little fun this year with a stylish, celeb-approved option? Having recently stepped out in a slew of on-trend silhouettes that are perfect for the party season, fashion A-listers — like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Janhvi Kapoor — are the best source of New Year's and Christmas style inspiration. Whether you're attending a special dinner or throwing the most epic house party, take style inspiration from these picks that will help you stand out at all the year-end festivities.
The classic black dress
Deepika Padukone’s recent look proves that some silhouettes never go out of style. In December, at the trailer launch of her upcoming film Chhapaak in Mumbai, Padukone wore a full-sleeved black midi dress by designer Emilia Wickstead that came with a knotted detailing on the neckline, and a cinched in waistline that highlighted her frame. The Piku star revamped the timeless black outfit with statement accessories: a pair of eye-catching diamond earrings by Khanna Jewellers and a pair of black strappy heels that featured large blooms on the back for an added touch of drama. Heading out for a more formal dinner? A black midi dress like Deepika Padukone’s is a complete wardrobe winner.
The blazer dress
At an event in Mumbai in December, actress Janhvi Kapoor stood out in her red blazer dress. Her Fleur du Mal ensemble came with a matching belt that cinched it in at the waist. The Dhadak star gave the bold look a millennial-approved update by pairing it with a pair of comfortable white sneakers. The choice of footwear gave Kapoor’s red dress a casual spin, and the actress kept her look fuss-free by skipping on any heavy jewellery. If you’ve been thinking about wearing a red look to a New Year's or Christmas get-together, consider a bold yet effortless blazer dress like Janhvi Kapoor’s to really make a statement.
The sparkly dress
It wouldn't be December party season without a sparkly dress, right? This year, try one in an off-the-moment cut like actress Alia Bhatt's dazzling silver pick. For an awards show in Mumbai in September, the Raazi star was spotted wearing a sequin dress that featured one kimono sleeve, cut-outs at the waist and a leg slit. Since Alia Bhatt's show-stopper outfit choice needed no extra frills, she chose to ditch accessories. But there was no missing her statement metallic heels. Alia Bhatt's shimmering dress is by American designer Michael Costello.
The pleated skirt
Actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja chose a pleated skirt and a printed blazer from her husband Anand Ahuja’s brand Bhaane — worn without a shirt — for an event in Mumbai in December. She styled her pleated yellow midi skirt with an oversized printed blazer, which featured an eye-catching brushstroke print in strong shades of red, yellow and green. The colourful combo made Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's ensemble feel less corporate and more casual. With the party season in full swing, it’s now time to bring out your boldest colours and most playful pieces. Tired of slinky slip dresses and bodycon numbers? Opt for an easy-going, yet eye-catching look like Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s.
The fringe dress
If you're looking for the ultimate party frock, go for a fringe style like Priyanka Chopra's. During an outing in September, the actress turned the street of New York into a runway in a sexy white and black fringed dress by Monse featuring dramatic details. Her one-shoulder dress featured layers of long black and white tassels that brought lots of drama and movement to her look. The dress also came with a thigh-high slit, spotlighting the star’s perfectly toned legs. For your upcoming New Year's outing, give basic dresses a break and experiment with a Boomerang-ready number like Priyanka Chopra’s.
