Look of the Week: Night at the Nutcracker

Chances are, you're dying to go to the ballet after seeing Natalie Portman's staggering performance in Black Swan. If you haven't already seen Aronofsky's latest flick, go see it immediately and then get back to this post.

Fortunately, the SF Ballet's gorgeous production of the Nutcracker has taken residence at the War Memorial Opera House through Dec. 27, which brings us to the inevitable question of what to wear to the occasion.

Well, we think this glamorous gold-flecked LBD with a ballet-inspired neckline, accessorized with a plumed clutch (a nod to the dancers' elaborate costumes), luxe red lipstick and sky-high platforms will definitely steal the spotlight.
