New Year’s Eve Inspiration: What The Celebs Did In 2016

Have you finalised your plans for New Year’s Eve or do you need a little more inspiration? There can be so much pressure at this time of year to have the perfect night. Do you go to a bar? A club? A pub? Do you know anyone who is throwing a house party or are would you host one yourself? There are just so many options to welcome in the new year.

If we want a New Year’s Eve party that will make everyone jealous on Instagram, then we need to look at what the celebs did last year. They were all over social media last New Year’s Eve night, showing off the cool things they were doing and making it known that they were having fun.

Let’s have a recap for some last-minute NYE inspiration:

Jourdan Dunn

Wow! This picture makes everyone jealous! New Year’s Eve is the perfect excuse to combine partying with a holiday like Jourdan did. Whether you go away for one night, for three or for a week, it’s good to have some time to clear your head so you can start 2017 on a fresh night. Imagine lying on a beach in your bikini to ease the new year hangover – bliss!

Suki Waterhouse and Cara Delevingne

The girls also had a holiday over New Year’s Eve, spending 5 nights in Barbados and having crazy parties every day. Their break was a wild one rather than a reflective one but they let out all their steam so they could focus on work in 2017.

Demi Lovato

Every major city usually hosts public events with fireworks and live music, giving people the chance to come together for a happy reason. Demi performed at the event in Times Square, New York, while braving the chill in a gorgeous black faux fur jacket. She looked and sounded amazing!

Perri Edwards

She may have spent the previous New Year’s with her fiancé Zayn Malik, but after becoming single in 2015, Perri welcomed in 2016 with her closest girlfriends. And her friends went for a fancy dress theme, which Perri got fully involved in. Who needs men when you can dress as a pirate and be silly?

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

As they were about to become parents in 2016, Chrissy and John opted for a romantic holiday to Morocco where they dressed up for each other and saw in New Year’s Eve lit by candles. It’s not always about the size of your party if you spend the night with the one person you care about more than anyone else in the world. New Year’s Eve can be very special if you share it with your love.

Alexa Chung

Alexa was a glamorous cowboy at a dinner party, combining a dazzling white top with a trilby hat.  A dinner party is such a civilised way to welcome in the new year. Treating your body to luxury food and tasty drinks on the first day of a new year sets a precedent that you will do something to treat yourself in the coming weeks and months.  Also, if you have food with your drinks, you’re less likely to get a stinking hangover.

Whatever you do on New Year’s Eve, have a good one. Happy New Year!
