We asked celebrity guest editor Olivia Palermo for her very own glam New Year's "wrap up." Here's what she'll be wearing and wishing for when the frock strikes midnight...
…And now it’s time to address the most pressing decision of the year: what kind of cookies will you leave for Santa and his reindeer? Will they be homemade or store bought? Gluten-free? Sprinkles or no sprinkles? And will all that chocolate stain his snow white beard? Inside sources at the North Pole tell us this is what the big guy loves most:

Metallic pieces are always holiday party perfect… here’s a ready-to-rock roundup of celeb-stylist Rachel Zoe’s faves.
"There is no better moment to bust out some shine quite like New Year’s Eve. With just a little more than a week ‘til the holiday, the countdown truly begins now—the countdown to find a major look, that is. Keeping in mind that sequins are a pre-requisite to any NYE ensemble, I picked out my favorite metallic pieces to create a party-ready look. What better way to mark the start of 2012 than with a little bit—make that a lot—of glam?"
New Year's Eve:
Trina Turk Magnolia One Shoulder Dress: “I die for a one-shoulder moment. Pair this dress with a big cocktail ring or glam earrings, but skip the statement necklace so that it doesn’t distract from the silhouette.”
Kelsi Dagger Linzy Pump: “Since most NYE ensembles already have a lot going on, I recommend keeping your footwear simple with an understated pair of closed-toe pumps.”
Tinley Road Cluster Stud Earring: “Add a subtle but totally glamorous touch of sparkle to any party look with these crystal studs.”
MICHAEL Michael Kors Military Zip Pocket Jacket: “This sheeny jacket is a perfect piece to dress up an office party look.”
Rachel Bootcut Jean by Rachel Zoe: “If you’re in need of a last-minute holiday look, grab flared black jeans from your closet and glam them up with a sequin top or bold jewelry. They’re a totally appropriate option for a festive evening out.”
Sabine Three Circle Pendant Necklace: “Love myself a pendant necklace! Wear this one night or day, office to out...there are no rules.”
Splendid V-Neck Tee: “A soft layering tee is everything—wear it with a chic jacket and flared jeans, then throw on some pumps and jewels, and head out the door.”
Milly Kerstin Party Dress: “This metallic cocktail dress was made to party. I dare you to put it on and not have a good time.”
Steve Madden Dynemite Platform Sandal: “Add a few mandatory inches to your holiday look with these great suede sandals. Don’t be afraid to throw on tights if it’s chilly out!”
Philosopher's Stone Ring by Gretchen Jones for Piperlime: “Never underestimate the power of a major statement ring.”
