Haven't settled on your midnight attire yet? Don't stress — our Countdown to NYE series continues with a look inspired by Ava Gardner's old-Hollywood charm. Her glamorous combination of soiree-perfect statement pieces, including a black sweetheart tulle dress, chunky diamond earring studs, and a string of pearl bracelets, creates a sexy yet subtle silhouette. To add a dash of New Year's sparkle to the ensemble, throw on a pair of slick metallic pumps, tote a sequined envelope clutch, and rock a fierce berry red lip color. Ready to turn heads?
