Happy new year! While you’re waking up to watch the ball drop or struggle to toss your drink back at your local dive bar, celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Selena Gomez are slammed into Aspen. We were celebrating the beginning of 2023 in gorgeous locations from to Cabo. Of course, up to nine on that occasion.
Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Cardi B were among the stars who took the stage in the final moments of 2022, wowing crowds with looks like flashy mini dresses and bold gowns.
Below, see the best celebrity outfits from countdown to midnight.
The pop star’s “Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party” special was predictably fashion-packed, with Cyrus showing off some great vintage styles from Versace, Bob Mackie, Yves Saint Laurent and Gucci. She and her co-host Dolly Parton even had a moment to match in bold leopard print looks.
The heiress paid tribute to her iconic 21st birthday dress during her performance of “Stars Are Blind” in Cyrus’ special, in an updated version of her sexy chainmail style by Laurel DeWitt. Dazzling.
Taking a page out of Hilton’s style playbook, the model hit the beach in a saucy, crystal-encrusted Clio Pepiatto Chainmail Dress ($1,537).
Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz
The best friends, who recently debuted matching “angel” tattoos, spotted a silver sequined Valentino mini dress and a transparent platform while vacationing in Los Cabos, Mexico with Pertz’s husband, Brooklyn Beckham. I adjusted the costume for the New Year’s countdown with glittering heels.
The makeup mogul marked the start of 2023 with a sexy style, wearing a sheer, open-knit Alaïa catsuit ($3,180).
The “WAP” rapper performed with her husband Offset in Miami on New Year’s Eve in a bright red halter gown with glittery accents by Valdrin Sahiti.
The “One Kiss” singer ushered in a full Y2K in 2023, playing peek-a-boo in a crystal mesh Ludovic de Saint Sernin dress with a very low back and Lipa’s white thong.
Like Ripa, Bieber opted for a “whale tail” at NYE, opting for a Mugler LBD ($1,370) with cutouts like exposed G-strings.
The “Mary Me” star sipped champagne in a plunging color-blocked Gucci gown adorned with a festive red and green crystal brooch.
The Desperate Housewives star looked desperate in a sheer halter dress with a hip-high slit.
