In case you've ever wondered, "Approximately how much fur, sparkles, and sequins can I pile on my body this New Year's Eve?" these celebrities already did the crucial math for you. Spoiler alert: so much. Ahead, the most sparkly, shiny, and celebratory outfits famous people have ever worn to ring in the New Year (the only thing missing is a glass of champagne).
We start off this journey here at the beginning of the millennium with Carmen Electra in 2000: Sparkly crop top, red furry coat, and a dangling icy necklace with the letter "D" on it. Peak New Year's, but there's so much more to come.
A very familiar pose for anyone who's ever tried to take a good group photo in a bathroom on NYE: Kim, Khloe, and Kardashian finding the right light in 2009.
Here, 2005 is all flapper feathers and a babydoll dress, because *The Zombies voice* "it's the time of the seeeason."
In 2010, don't even bother showing up to NYE unless you're wearing a gold encrusted mini-dress with a full-length train.
A #throwback photo of me looking effortless stylish and having the time of my life (actually a photo of Chloë Sevigny at a 2008 NYE party, alas).
The Abominable Snowman only wished he looked this chic.
Sequins? Check. Mini dress? Check. The most accessible look on this entire list? Also check.
Simply put, "YES." *puts a Mongolian lambswool vest on this year's wish list*
Like cracking open a geode, in dress form.
See every "Lady Gaga at New Year's" look ever for your eternal style inspiration.
Gold-embellished braids and shiny bodycon, lest you forgot it was NYE.
Pat McGrath would be *very* proud of this sparkly eyeshadow look. Slay on, Nicki.
Sequined nude bodysuit and fur? Honestly, same. Here, Lopez performing at NYE 2010 in Times Square.
Red carpet or no, Fergie will dress for one. Here, she poses for New Year's Eve 2016 in a sheer sequined gown with a red lip.
Wearing the classic New Yorker uniform—all black and desperately avoiding puffer jackets—here's Demi Lovato performing in Times Square.
"What, like it's cold outside?"
Milian performing at Pitbull's NYE party in 2016 wearing a bodysuit with a black cumberbund and knee-length boots with cutouts. Who needs pants when you're this fabulous?
We're guessing this dress RiRi wore back in 2006 was inspired by the NYE crystal ball in Times Square. "Shine bright like a diamond," indeed.
Keeping the pantsuit going strong even at the tail end of 2016, Underwood wore one in jewel tones—for that holiday feel—in Times Square.
In which Kris Jenner is twinning with a sparkly penguin clutch (see what she did there?) back in 2011.
Waaaay back in 2010, Kim wore the most classic NYE outfit of all time: a low-cut sequined dress, a pair of shiny pumps, and a feathery "Happy New Year" hat. Prepare the selfie cam.
The most early aughts New Year's dress that ever was: A sequined mini dress she wore in 2007 that simply says, "I ❤️ Paris." Keep living your best life, Paris.
It's holiday season for Mariah Carey year-round, and here she is blessing us with this ornamental sequined mini-dress in 2010.
In case you need further proof, here she is even further back in 2005 attending her own New Year's party in all white, floor-length fur, and body bling. So yes, every other New Year's look was cancelled that year.
You're in the presence of greatness, and please don't forget it.
Thought candy canes were over past Christmas? *Raises eyebrows* 2010 Rihanna says otherwise.
Here, archival footage of the Old Taylor: sparkly waistcoat, a cropped top, and high waisted pants. R.I.P.
Lady Gaga, just doing Lady Gaga.
Mixed media—jewel tones, fur, *and* sequins—when you want to cover all your bases.
A gentle reminder that jewel tones are a perfect middle ground for those who hate wearing black but also despise sparkles.
