10 Stunning New Year's Eve Cocktail Dresses
There’s no denying that the cocktail dress is a power player when it comes to a woman’s wardrobe. ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ just wouldn’t have been the same without Audrey Hepburn’s famous little black dress, and let’s not pretend like Vivian won over Edward in ‘Pretty Woman’ without the aid of that stunning red off-the-shoulder number. Needless to say, give a girl the right cocktail dress, and she can conquer the world (and Hollywood as we know it).
When heading into the New Year, we think it’s only good karma to start things off on a stylish note, starting with your New Year’s Eve outfit.
