We’ve learned a few important lessons from the red carpet this year. You can never go wrong with metallics. Statement outerwear can make or break any outfit. Sometimes — usually — it’s better to go bold, both in colors and textures. And most importantly, always go for velvet. As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to start thinking about your winter party wardrobe, and there’s no better inspiration than our favorite red carpet looks of the fall. Whatever festive activities you have planned, let Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Bella Hadid, and more of the red carpet’s best-dressed stars be your guides, because no one knows how to layer a slip dress like an It girl.
