    Weddings get a pretty good rap. We'd argue against the idea that the big day is "the best you'll ever look," but between the explosion of flowers, perfectly coiffed updo, and your love on your arm, it practically takes the fondant-slathered cake. While a ring, gown, and a dozen deposits are basically required for that big day, we think toasting to the future at the turn of every year is a pretty big deal, too. You're surrounded by all of your friends, wearing your biggest baubles, and the champagne-clinking possibilities down the road are equally endless. So, why not get all gussied up?

    That's why, thanks to the stylish crew over at Rent The Runway, you can win everything you need to have the most glamorous holiday season, ever. With a $1,000 shopping spree on its frock-filled site and a fresh pair of Louboutins and Dannijo gems to complete the look, the only thing missing is that VIP invite to whatever fiesta Beyonce and Jay-Z are bound to throw. (Though, if you're sparkling from head to toe with looks from Helmut Lang, Opening Ceremony or Elizabeth and James, you just might be able to sneak in on your own accord.)

    This giveaway is massive: We're giving you all the props necessary to rock it out big time when the ball drops at midnight — but enough to ensure you'll be perfectly styled for all of the weeks beforehand, too. Want to don a killer Nanette Lepore number to your office party? Consider it done. A patterned Proenza Schouler stunner to that Christmas party with an unidentified dress code? Easy as pumpkin pie. And the oh-so-perfect dress to wear back home when you know you'll bump into your high-school ex? They've got plenty of those, too.

    Whatever you choose — and with this pile of goodies valued at $2,500, you can choose a ton — be perfectly outfitted to look your best, all winter long. Just enter our giveaway, take a look at our four hand-picked party looks, and prepare for your friends and family to fawn over your new jaw-dropping look.

3 DIY Lunches That Are Better Than Anything You Can Order In

On the totem pole of nighttime rituals, planning our lunches ranks on the low end. Just making a homemade dinner can be a feat in itself, so prepping another meal after that is asking a whole lot. But, come 1 p.m. the next day — as we're scrolling Seamless yet again — we suddenly wish we'd put in the effort after all. read

Meet The Actress You'll Be Watching All Fall

Hollywood isn't easy to break into. Most actors wait for decades to have that right-place-right-time moment, and it never comes. Which is exactly what makes Karla Souza so unique. After moving from Mexico City to Los Angeles a few months ago, it took her a matter of weeks to book a major role on a pilot. And, this wasn't read
