You heard it here first: Lily-Rose Depp is the Next Big Thing. We spoke to the 17-year-old about family (Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp), fame (movies, a new Chanel campaign) and how she's finding life in the spotlight. Spoiler: surprisingly comfortable.

Then it's straight into party season style. We haven't held back on the shine or the colour: look to our fashion spreads for fantastical inspiration, our style pages for the key pieces to buy to get the look (brooches and bejewelled clutches), and our beauty pages for the most modern way to wear glitter. We've also profiled four stylish and successful Malaysian women and asked them: What's the perfect party outfit?

If gifting is on your mind, as it should be, we've got an incredible guide to what you should buy for the most stylish people in your life (that is, yourself). Also, the nine most covetable beauty gift sets this season, and the greatest gift of all: Mariah Carey's new makeup collection with M.A.C. And our present to you: two pages of Jon Hamm (in which he tells us he doesn't think he's that handsome).

More, more, more: 48 hours in Vegas, a behind-the-scenes look at the most stylish dinner party ever, cocktail and canapé recipes and, for balance, a sobering look at what drinking is doing to your skin. Happy holidays!
