Holiday Party Perfect: Chanel Iman’s Valentino Was The Style Moment Of The Season

Last night, we braved the cold to toast the launch of Bluefly's new flash-sale site, Bell & Clive (billed as "highly-curated private sales at members-only prices") at Union Square's Double Cross Lounge, but the attention was (unsurprisingly) on host, Chanel Iman, who stunted on all of the other fashionable editors with a sheer-pointelle-chiffon-and-leather Valentino number for the ages. Demure, yet seductive, refined, yet funky— the dress is literally everything. If we could just borrow that beaded collar (we're naming it festive accessory numero uno), just that cool lacy-bra bit, just the leather skirt part, we'd be set for the night season. Put it all together with a classic pair of Loubs, some understated pearl earrings, and natural makeup, and Chanel's got herself a memorable look for literally every holiday occasion imaginable. What do you think— great or really great? Tell us what you think in the comments below, but our mind is pretty much set on the latter.
