If you only buy one thing for the party season this year make it a killer cocktail dress. We're talking show-stopping ruffle details, sexy ruching or crazy print numbers, the more theatrical the better! Modelled so well by Grazia favourite Leighton Meester, decked out in Prabal Gurung this week, the key to pulling one of these babies off? Sleek, sophisticated accessories in non distracting black with simple hair and make-up, go for a statement lip colour too... go on we dare you! Not sure where to start? Check out our top picks, all but a click away. Happy shopping!
