Is it just us, or did the Holiday season seem eternal this year? Do you even remember a time when Christmas carols weren't the bane of your existence? Well, guess what, now it's finally, really, over. Yep, it's back to reality, folks. But before we return to regular work hours and a minimal party schedule, we figure we'd get nostalgic for just a minute, and reminisce about all the fab parties from the month gone by. So as a final salute to the holidays, here are our picks for the top ten looks from parties around the globe.

In our eyes this girl can do no wrong. Somehow she's always able to mix things that you'd never think to put together, and then make them look like they couldn't have been worn any other way. How about them bracelets!?

Tallulah Morton at Club 77, Sydney, via The Cobra Snake:
Really, who else can make a corseted leather dress, plastic bracelets, and multi-colored nails look fabulous? If we saw any of the above no someone else, we might be tempted to scowl, but in this case, it's all oohs and ahhs.

Lou Doillon at Vogue China's Big Prize event:
Ok, thanks to a genetic predisposition to be style-inclined, it's practically impossible for this chick to not look amazing - but that doesn't mean we can't give her props for this funky dress that only she can pull off. Also, who else can still wear a headband and not look over-styled?

Insane Brisbane Party, Brisbane, via The Cobra Snake:
So we already new those Aussie girls could dress, but we just about died when we saw this amazing tie dye jumper—have you checked out the back? Seriously, we want it, now.

Jenna Lyons at Tenth Annual Winter Wonderland Ball:
Isn't this so classic Hollywood, with a modern twist? We mean, really, who doesn't love winter white, and how about them lips? The ultimate take on a classic look that never, ever, goes out of style.

Laeticia Crahay at Vogue China's Big Prize Event:
At once gothic and dramatic, yet also subtle and elegant, this get-up is the ultimate red carpet glam. The headband help to make it all a bit more casual, and Olivier Theyskens might be the best accessory ever.

Olivia Palermo at The Third Annual Benefit For Charity: Water,via Style.com:
The monochrome tights/shoes look, paired with this super-charged, volume-heavy get-up is the perfect downtown glitz. Not to mention, how amazing does this shade of peach look with her coloring? All about knowing your colors, people.

Byrdie Bell at The Third Annual Benefit For Charity: Water, via Style.com:
It was all about fringe this year and this outfit so captures the '20's inspired simplicity of the flapper dress—and for once, it's not black, just super simple and chic.

Iris and Carl Apfel at Art Basel, Miami, via Style.com:
If you try to tell us you don't want to look like this when you're in your eighties, we're calling you a flat-out liar. She's sublime, he might need a new suit.

Coco Rocha and Ingrid Schram at the Tenth Annual Winter Wonderland Ball, via Style.com: There's something classic and crazy feminine about a white poof dress in the middle of winter. So girly, so pretty, so dead-on.
