From Kate Hudson to Lily James - See the celebrity looks we're loving this week...

The A-List were out in force last night and they didn't disappoint on the red carpet.

From Claridges' glittering party in London to celebrate Christopher Bailey’s Burberry umbrella-inspired Christmas Tree, to a whole host of star-studded premieres and parties in New York, there were plenty of impressive sartorial choices on display. We’ve rounded up a few of our favourites.

First up: Kate Hudson. As ever, the ultra-fit 36-year-old looked unbelievably chic on the red carpet - or in this case, red Campari carpet. Yes, Kate dazzled in red sequins for a night out in New York, proving that the glitzy jumpsuit can still be stylish. Top tips to take from this standout look? Keep your hair and make-up low-key to really offset the bold red shade, and go for a wide-leg trouser to keep the outfit looking elegant. Not quite as body confident as Miss Hudson - or don't want to brave the cold? Go for a long-sleeved style that’s nipped in at the waist and opt for an equally chic navy shade. Bravo, Kate.

Lily James is no stranger to a new fashion trend and last night she showcased her sartorial skills in this sheer Burberry creation. Extra points go to Lily for the slight ruffle detailing at the neckline. Not only is this look incredibly demure, but we reckon the sheer midi (when teamed with some suitable underwear) is a perfect evening look too.

Chloe Sevigny regularly tops the best-dressed lists, and it’s not hard to see why. Chloe’s daring choices and accessorising skills gives even the simplest of dresses an effortless cool factor - and this look is no exception. The look is instantly brought to life with those statement earrings, that bold red lip and those achingly cool platform heels.

Jennifer Lawrence has been running a style marathon lately and her latest red carpet outfit could well be her best yet. There’s no doubt about it, this look is a showstopper. The tousled hair, subtle sheer detailing and dark red lip make this classic black look feel fresh and relevant. J-Law, you've wowed us again.

The drop-hem maxi dress is a look we’ve long been loving, and we’re always pleased to see this elegant silhouette on the red carpet. We reckon Olivia Wilde has totally nailed the look. The style-savvy 31-year-old made the brave decision to slip into this top-to-toe white look, pairing this high-neck number with matching heeled sandals, and cleverly managed to avoid looking too bridal. Wearing her long brunette locks pulled neatly into a low bun, she polished off the look with a slick of red lipstick.
