Putting together the perfect outfit can be tough, especially for a party. One of the best ways to seek style inspiration is to look to trend setting celebs.
Though we might not all have the luxury of wearing Louis Vuitton with Louboutins, we can still look to the overall ensemble to channel our favourite starlets.
We're just as bored as you are seeing celebs on stage, at big media events or on the red carpet. Most of us won't ever make it up there, so really, we don't care what the best Oscars outfit is, or what we should wear to the Cannes Film Festival.
So here it is ladies and gents, the real deal. A few images for your perusing pleasure, to inspire, to captivate and ultimately, to sheerly entertain you.
