I haven't seen the movie, but the trailer image of Angelina Jolie is all I need to draw comparison between the Disney character 'Maleficent' and the new trend of dark, sultry attire.
Christmas wear is getting a little more lustful in two ways; firstly, we want to get our mits on this fashion (like NOW), and secondly, some mystery and suggestiveness through style is never a bad thing.
And fabrics are getting luxurious with textures like velvet and thick satins, with decadent features like gold embellishment.
Walking into the Christmas party in one of the above styles is all you need to create impact. Wear a strong red lip, pop on the highest heels you have and style yourself up with a full or mid length gown. Ta-dah, Angelina will be jealous of you!
And perhaps the strongest selling point of the Maleficent look is how timeless it is. The shapes, fit and textures are classic and promise not date in any way. So these investments are prudent, I tell you, prudent!
So tell us, do you like the sultry look? Which piece in our edit is your favourite? And are we allowed to talk about Christmas party attire yet?
