Look ravishing in red like Lucy in Greta Constantine

Now that we're approaching party season, it's time to start looking to celebrities for some style inspiration.

It can be all too easy to opt for the classic little black dress, but here at Fashion Finder HQ, we think that injecting some colour into your occasionwear wardrobe is a total must during the festive period.

What better colour is there than red to celebrate the season? And with some fancy frills, you can really feel the festive vibes.

We are obsessed with Lucy Liu's Greta Constantine number, and think that styled with some gold accessories, it will ensure that all eyes are on you at any gathering, whether it's the work Christmas party or a New Year's Eve event.
