New Year's Outfit Inspiration from Four Iconic Style Stars

Whether it's a major blowout or some quaint cocktailing for six, the fashion stakes for new year's eve are always high. So high, we racked our brains for new ways to shake up the annual witching hour, and turn a typical party outfit into something to really mark the year. And in perusing some classic snaps of our favorite classic inspirations--from Bianca to Kate--we scored four ball-dropping looks we can all try at home. Faux fur, cascading sequins, patent, and bowler hats...this party is just beginning.
