The Holidays Were Made For Going Baroque — Here's the Proof

A glimpse of both Jennifer Hudson and Amanda Seyfried's respective looks last night proved that the baroque trend we saw all over the Fall '12 runways never looked better — or was more appropriate — than right now. If the gilded details seemed like a stretch a couple of short months ago, the holidays are shaping up to be just the right time to embrace that opulence. While Amanda's black-and-gold McQueen gown from the other night may be best reserved for big film premieres, like the Les Misérables red carpet where we spotted her, her latest black-and-gold Michael Kors minidress is the perfect iteration to borrow for your own Holiday cocktail parties. Jennifer Hudson, too, embraced the trend with a black lace and gold-trimmed mini on stage at the Nobel Peace Prize concert, giving us another styling rendition to put to good use over the Holidays, and even New Year's. Though each of the actresses took a different approach — Amanda kept her look understated, with minimal jewels, bare legs, and classic heels, while Jennifer gave the dress a wintry complement with sheer black tights and platform heels — the results are both resoundingly glam. In each look, the dresses' gold accents take the focus, giving the traditional LBD a high-wattage twist. To channel the same chic play on festive cocktail wear, just shop our editors' picks below.
