It’s the holiday season. The season between elegant black and over the top, red-carpet wear – where you sport tailored suits and fitted gowns. Rather than sporting platform stripper heels under a too long dress that’s sagging at the tatas. It’s your time, to truly shine. This week, I chose these looks for that reason.

The monetary value achieved from these shots may not be as fruitful as making next season’s best dressed list, but it gives us the opportunity to see what these designers and stylists are able to create. From Alan showing us suits don’t need to be black to be chic, to Caplan’s houndstooth on patchwork ensemble to H.S.H. giving us a Suzanne Sugarbaker throwback, to Bendet… well, Bendet’s David Choe watercolor collection dress with that fur coat had me wishing I never gave away my fur years ago. It’s those little accents that make everything memorable, fashion forward and, I hate to say it because Tyra killed it for me, fierce!

And don’t think I forgot Naomi. Madame Campbell’s style is innate. One nary a caption for her.
