While we're still in the midst of Halloween  costume dilemmas (Bella or Big Bird . . .), we did a mental fast-forward to the December holiday party circuit when we saw Kate Bosworth 's glittering strapless at her skin care launch in Sydney last night. We know it's a wee bit early, but we couldn't help it — this sparkling confection would be just the thing for Christmas cocktails and even better as the ultimate New Year's Eve dress. We love that the glitz is tempered with a minimalist strapless silhouette and a below-the-knee hemline, making it a much more elegant play on sequins. Kate also played the finishes just right with a fresh face, natural waves, and a touch of metallic accessories. Take note: if you're going for a dress with the same wow factor, keep your beauty routine just as simple and let your dress do the talking. If you're feeling inspired, we're kicking off the holiday dress shopping with a few Kate-esque options below.
