It's certainly true to say that while 2016 has been a year of ups and downs, it has been packed full of spectacular parties.
Just as we're winding down on a dazzling twelve months though, we're beginning to set our sights on all of the great opportunities to bring the black tie frocks out of hibernation again in 2017.
And February 13, 2017 will undoubtedly be a night to blow all of the other fashion parties out of the water as we once again host the ELLE Style Awards in association with H&M.
Keep your eyes peeled for coverage here on ELLEUK.com, as we showcase all of the best dressed stars, record the pithiest acceptance speeches and chronicle the hilarious after party happenings.
Fancy feeling like you're right there with us?
