Alessandra Ambrosio by Giampaolo Sgura for Vogue Nippon (December 2010)

The holiday season is approaching and it's time to step up the glitter and gold. No one wants to ring in the New Year wearing something boring. But the truth is, every outfit without accessories is a little bit boring. We truly stand by this theory at Sophie's Closet.

The pages of December issues were covered in sexy metallics and sparkly jewels, so we were inspired to do some "dressing up" ourselves. We grabbed some of our favourite cocktail dresses and killer heels from Net-a-Porter and paired them with our accessories. Our muse? Alessandra Ambrosio in this stunning photo from Japanese Vogue. Sticking with metallics and blacks, we created three looks: Flirty Art Deco, Modern Goddess and Rock Chic.


from Net-a-Porter: MILLY dress; JIMMY CHOO shoes; JUDITH LEIBER clutch;
from Sophie's Closet: CC SKYE "Power" ring (AED 880); RACHEL LEIGH bangles (AED 640 each) and earrings (AED 290)

This look is defined by geometric lines and patterns (think 1920s architecture). We love the contrast of the soft lace dress with hard edge lines of the Judith Leiber clutch, CC Skye's ring and Rachel Leigh's chandelier earrings.


from Net-a-Porter: ALEXANDER WANG dress; ROBERTO CAVALLI shoes; LANVIN clutch;
from Sophie's Closet: MELINDA MARIA "Mademoiselle" ring (AED 530); MELINDA MARIA bracelets (AED 450 each); SIMAN TU earrings (AED 1400)

Every woman is attracted to soft draped garments. They have that Greek goddess feel, especially when it's off one shoulder. Goddesses are a little over the top so we decided to add some feathers, pearls and gold to the mix. One of the biggest misconceptions is that all jewelry has to match all the time. It's definitely not true. We love mixing stones, metals and styles. It makes the outfit more unexpected and edgy.


from Net-a-Porter: SASS & BIDE dress; ALEXANDER WANG shoes; ANYA HINDMARCH clutch;
from Sophie's Closet: BOUNKIT earrings (AED 1640); CC Skye "Angel Wing" ring (AED 570); Joomi Lim spiked bangles (AED 470); Jeniffer Behr leather headband (AED 990)

Nothing is sexier than a little rock chic. This peek-a-boo dress by Sass & Bide is the embodiment of it without being trashy. With an amazing long front zipper, sequins and fine mesh, all detailed with gold, this dress was screaming for gold overload. We added winged Alexander McQueen booties and our matching CC Skye wing ring. No rock look is complete without some spikes and studs so, of course, we used Joomi Lim and Jennifer Behr. And to soften it back up: some glamorous jewels by Bounkit. The rock lady is still a lady after all.
