New Year's Eve might be over, but we're still not quite over Taylor Swift's red-hot outfit. The country star took to the stage during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest to perform two songs off of her hit new album, Red. Dressed accordingly, the singer added in the perfect dose of festive shine with a red sequined Iro jacket, a favorite moto jacket of ours, and played off the edgy accents by pairing it with tough leather pants. Click on to hear more about Taylor's bright NYE getup. On Allison McNamara: Greylin top, Vita Fede necklace and ring.
New Year's Eve is one of those holidays where the pressure to do something fun is really on. Thankfully, there are apps to help ensure a great time. It doesn't matter if you have plans for a big night out in the city or are staying put on the couch; these apps will have you seeing fireworks and counting down for a guaranteed memorable night.
There are party dresses of the usual sort — LBDs, fit-and-flare confections, maybe something in lace — but on NYE, don't reach for the usual suspects; instead, let Camilla Belle inspire you to reach for something sequined and totally glamorous. Sequins might seem like a forgone conclusion on New Year's, but that's just because nothing feels quite so festive — and there's nothing wrong with that. So we're taking cues straight from Miss Belle and embracing the high-wattage shine on a silvery, stem-baring minidress. The best way to complement a mini like this isn't with added glitz, but with a few well-placed jewels and a metallic clutch in hand to play off (but not upstage) the glitter. And the ultimate secret-weapon finisher? A pair of sky-high nude pumps (with a comfy platform!) that make your legs look even longer. All you have to do is shop to get the look just in time to make a jaw-dropping arrival at any of your NYE soirees.
TGIF! Before heading out to a bar, party, or friend's house, test your knowledge of the calorie counts in popular cocktails so you don't end up drinking more than expected. Think you know which drinks have more then 200 calories?
Remember, drinking responsibly is more than just a calorie count. If you're drinking, don't drive.

If there's ever a time to bring out the sparkly, the glitz, and the glam, it's New Year's Eve. So release your inner magpie with shiny soiree décor as you toast to 2011!
Keep track of the time with a chic clock like George Nelson's Sunflower Clock ($1,085) and be sure to have plenty of party-friendly accouterments like mini sparklers ($16 for four), a Crystal Pinata ($140), and confetti poppers ($12.50 each). Pour your bubbly into dainty saucers ($75 for four) and dress your table with Bling Placecard Holders ($13 for four), Sequin Flower Napkin Rings ($25), and a flower-filled Futura Asterisk Vase ($125).

Happy New Year! Here's a resolution idea with some pretty nice returns, inspired by a pal in NYC who did something similar for her dog's birthday a few years back. Since a fresh calendar page is a good time to start something cool, I plan on turning 2010 into the year of the picture. After all, North is pretty darn photogenic (if I do say so myself).
Yes, I know there are 365 days in a year and I know myself well enough to realize I won't always be around or remembering to snap a picture of my pup. That's OK, I'll try to stay on task and end up with over 300 pictures, even if it means "cheating" and snapping two shots on one day.

Happy New Year! We hope that you're enjoying a great start to 2010 and not nursing a hangover from all the champagne you drank.

But that's beside the point: I want to know how many glasses you drank while ringing in the New Year?
