Too many Christmas Eve parties to attend? We’ve got you covered. Our pick of party-ready dresses, from names such as Platinoir and Saint Laurent, will ensure you’re the belle of the ball. Think lace, ruffles and tassels.

Strawberries and cream
Make a statement in this gown from Alexander McQueen. The cream silk dress comes with contrasting red embroidery for a stripe effect, which ends with matching fringes on the shoulders and hem. A high neck and box-pleated skirt finish the look. Rs.2,12,985

On the fringe
Go a bit edgy with this dress by Urbane. The green tassels run along the length of the maxi dress, which also has an asymmetrical sheer black panel and shorter black dress made from stretchable fabric. Rs.15,600

Bow wow
This piece from Johanna Ortiz is the type of dress that’s best paired with a champagne flute in one hand and a glittering black clutch in the other. Made from silk faille, it has a bow-shaped bodice and voluminous ruffles on one shoulder. Rs.1,30,790 approximately

Smooth criminal
Striking and sexy, this mini dress from Saint Laurent is crafted from velvet and lined with silk. Featuring a deep V-Neck and gathers at the waist, this is best worn with metallic pumps. Rs.97,060 approximately

Tier into
The emerald green one-shoulder dress from Self Portrait allows you to embrace your feminine side. Crafted from lace, the couturier’s expertise is reflected in the gentle folds of the fabric on the neckline and the skillfully created ruffles. Rs.22,700 approximately

Sage advice
Platinoir’s sage green dress has pearl and bugle bead embellishments in floral and geometric patterns. Made with a tulle base, the back features cut-out detailing. We love the sage and rose gold colour scheme. Rs.32,000

Stripe out
