What to Wear on New Year’s Eve: The Models’ Sexy Holiday Style Solution!

No shirt, no bra, no problem! Or so the models would have us believe based on their latest red carpet ensembles.  Despite the high risk factor, models by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger and Jessica Hart are opting for the bare minimal this season, pairing sleek tuxedo jackets with nothing but a heavy dose of decolletage!  Passe thought the trend may seem in light of the influx of scantily-clad celebs on the scene this year, the peek-a-boo look is surprisingly chic come nightfall.  Better yet, it’s the perfect model-approved style solution for those who aren’t too keen on the idea of slipping into another highly-embellished party dress this New Year’s Eve.

The key here is to know where to draw the line in terms of exposure.  While the look is meant to be revealing, you’ll want to avoid over exposure by pairing a revealing neckline with a pair of crisp, tailored pants and pointy-toe pumps— leave the shorts and mini skirts at home ladies.  Also, the jacket should be well-cut and fitted throughout, so as to ward off any possible nip-slip situations.  Remember, nobody likes a wardrobe malfunction, except maybe the cameras.

The look is modern, sexy and the only look we want to rock come time for the annual ball drop.  So long bras, it was nice knowing ya!

Look of the Week: Elle Macpherson Stays Chic (and Warm) in Aspen!

Our pick for Look of the Week today goes to supermodel Elle Macpherson! Wearing an oversized furry trapper’s hat with snow boots to match, Elle is ready for après ski as she struts her long legs in Aspen this week. No winter chic outfit would be complete without a cream colored Christmas sweater, and we’re loving Elle’s festive take on the trend with reindeers and just a hint of flannel peaking out. Our hats go off to Elle for staying stylish AND warm as she hits the slopes!

Rebecca Minkoff and Hilary Rhoda Team Up With the Rockettes for One Hilarious Holiday Video!

Watching the world-famous Radio City Rockettes perform their annual Christmas Spectacular is one of New York City’s most beloved holiday traditions, and while we’re generally not ones to mess with tradition, we’re all for it when it involves Rebecca Minkoff and her cast of hilarious fashion friends!

Returning this year with another side-splitting holiday video, the New York designer and pals Hilary Rhoda, John Jannuzzi of Lucky Magazine, Hannah Bronfman, Annie Georgia Greenberg of Refinery29, Jamie Chung, DJ Cassidy and Jane Keltner de Valle of Teen Vogue, put their high-kicking skills to the test in an audition to become the next Rockette dancers.  Filmed at Radio City, the cheeky holiday video sees Team Minkoff put through the ringer with two real life Rockettes, as they set out to realize their dreams of becoming high-kicking, Christmas dancing machines.  For her part, Hilary shines (literally) in the eyes of the Rockettes, and seems to hold her own in the group’s final performance, which we’ll admit, looks pretty difficult.  As John Jannuzzi explains it, “There’s all of these spins, steps and turns, and then you have to get sassy with things.”

We dare you not to crack a smile watching these sassy “Rockettes in Training” below!
