The music industry saluted its talents twice this month: Once at MTV's European Music Awards (EMAs) and second, at the American Music Awards (AMAs). What it really means though, is twice the red carpet sartorial inspiration. Just in time for the holidays, stand out from the crowd by emulating EMAs' Best Female, Lady Gaga, in a sleek, all-white pantsuit for black-tie soirées, or, turn up the wattage — without looking like a christmas bauble — à la model Winnie Harlow.

Have house parties on your cards instead? While Sienna Miller's tried-and-tested gilded lace frock is sure to work wonders, it's Chelsea Leyland's effortless denim and bomber combi that'll set you apart as a rule breaker. Just remember: Tap on your festive side by jazzing it up with velvet — the season's It-fabric that comes with oodles of texture but just the right amount of shine.
