Nary is there a better excuse to dress to the nines than New Year's Eve. It’s the last night of the old year and were it a good or bad one, it should be sent off in style. What better way to do so than by focusing on the linchpin of any great outfit- shoes. This year, forgo the gold lamé and sequins for the classic, little black dress and pair of shoes that are sleek, sexy and sky high.
Since not all of us have have the pocketbooks for a pair of Louboutin’s or Anastase’s, we can turn our attention to these equally sexy and much more affordable styles.
Picking the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve can be stressful. Finding that perfect dress to pair with those perfect accessories on top of that perfect hairstyle to wear with those perfect shoes… so many questions, so little time. Luckily, we’ve been able to cross dress, makeup and nail polish choices off your NYE fashion checklist. When it comes to the shoes, here are some options that should make that LBD of yours pop and almost all under $100!
NYE party plans? Check. LBD? Check. Bedazzling eyes? Check - once you've watched Youtube sensation and beauty guru Michelle Phan's tutorial below, that is. In this episode, she dishes out her recipe for a gaze so glamorous that once you've locked eyes with that dreamboat across the bar, he won't be able to look away.
Sounds great, right? And it's super-easy, too. Phan always makes her various guises look like effortless (how does she do it without a mirror?!), but this look really is rather simple and only requires a few key products beyond what you most likely already have.
New Year's Eve night is still a few months away, so you may have time to save for a New Year's ensemble. But with all the holiday shopping you have to do, are you really going to be able to stash some cash away for yourself? Don't fret, my dear. Your good, ol' LBD comes to the rescue once again, but with plenty of options to make it look fabulously fresh just in time for when the ball drops. New Years is a time for sparkle and glam, and NYE2011 has Forever 21 to thank for a plethora of glitzy accessories to compliment your old standard. Mix up your LBD with cocktail rings, cuff bracelets, multi-chain necklaces, sparkly purses and belts and dramatic hairpieces. With accessories priced around $5-15, you can use whatever money you have left over to treat your and your friends to a New Years toast!
There's been a lot of buzz around town about the film that has been labeled "the movie that defines the decade." The Social Network got my wheels turning about the future of media, where we stand now as an industry, and, moving forward, what my responsibility as editor is to you. As we move forward into the most important season in nightlife, I want you to know that I have heard your collective voice and I promise to deliver to you the stories of the people who make our world what it is. You have told me through your interest in our interviews with notables in the nightlife community that you want to hear personal accounts from the mouths of the people who open the velvet rope for you every night of the week here in New York. So, look forward to some witty remarks, inside stories, and an exclusive look at the elite in the nightlife community.

The summer won't officially be over for another week when we all have to stop wearing white in fear the fashion fairy will fall out of the sky and turn us into a knockoff Chanel handbag (gasp). And, speaking of Chanel, it wouldn't be the start of the fall season without the rumor mill of New York Fashion Week whirling up and down 5th Avenue. I'm hopeful for many things, as I always am as fashion week nears. I expect to see color blocking in its best, PR companies scrambling to douse the thirst of their celebrity clients and, of course, Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour glaring at the models as they come down the runway. I also hope that the bedbugs that are plaguing New York City stay away from Lincoln Center. It would be a dreadful sight to see the girls bit up and itching as they model next season's collections.
Joonbug will be promoting the New Year’s Eve 2011 celebration at Forum New York nightclub. Forum New York is one of New York’s hottest clubs and this New Year’s Eve party promises to be fit for an Emperor and Empress.
