While I wouldn’t say I always approve of every outfit Sarah Jessica Parker has ever rocked on the red carpet (this sentiment also applies to her equally fashionable onscreen alter egos), she always wins points in my style book for inspiring me to take fashion risks, whether it’s with show-stopping hair accessories, or a gown with classic silhouette in an unexpected pop of color like saffron. This makes her the perfect asset to the Halston Heritage creative team — a diffusion line that has reinvented the timeless label with hip, edgy takes on classic retro-chic glamour — just like SJP has demonstrated with her own sense of style over the years. And if there’s any time to take a cue from one of the high priestesses of fashion and be motivated to take a fashion risk and stand out, it’s holiday party time, where the occasion calls for a look that skillfully straddles the line between festively glamourous and refined. Halston Heritage has mastered this balance of glitzy Studio 54-inspired glamour and effortless elegance — making it the ideal source of plenty of perfect party frocks and stand-out gowns for the ultimate holiday party. I’m loving their selection of metallic night-out looks — some of which Sarah Jessica Parker has worn on the red carpet herself — like this floor-length lamé one-shoulder gown or this belted silver maxi dress. Or, if you’re really ready to embrace Saturday Night Fever, opt for a halter jumpsuit for instant 70s-inspired glamour!
