Whether they were celebrating at home or performing to millions in NYC, the A-listers pulled out all the stops to bid 2023 farewell.
Naturally, New Year’s Eve celebrations are an ideal occasion for wearing your glitziest outfit, and celebs didn’t disappoint in the sparkle department. Whether they were performing in Times Square or watching the ball drop at home in some subtle shimmer, the rich and famous were dressed to impress as they ushered in 2024. (Did you watch the ball drop in sweats and two-day old hair? Same.)
Check out our round-up of celebs on New Year’s Eve 2024 and see how they spent their countdowns to midnight — and what they wore — below.
Megan Thee Stallion
To take the stage during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve celebration in NYC, Megan Thee Stallion wore a purple custom two-piece set by Nike and House of JMC. When sharing photos of the performance look, which included custom sneakers with “Hottie” written on the sole, the rapper also teased an upcoming collab between her and the sportswear brand.
Meg later slipped into a post-performance ensemble consisting of a glamorous floor-length, gemstone-encrusted gown also by House of JMC. She completed the look with a matching choker, sleek hair and a makeup look by Revlon.
To close out one of the biggest years of her career, Taylor Swift spent NYE supporting her boyfriend Travis Kelce by attending the December 31 Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium. In her usual game day style, Swift sported a Chiefs letterman jacket (that happened to match the one Kelce wore just the week before) with her signature red lip.
Later in the evening, Swift rang in 2024 in a bejewelled minidress and a festive updo decorated with Jennifer Behr barrettes at a party with Kelce, fellow Chiefs’ player Patrick Mahomes, his wife Brittany Mahomes and more.
While performing her hit song “Feather” in Times Square, Sabrina Carpenter showcased her signature girly style in an all-white corset look that was giving vintage Madonna. After removing the fluffy shrug she began the performance in, the singer danced onstage in a mini-dress, white lace opera gloves and sky-high platform boots.
In a series of photos shared on January 1, Beyoncé gave us a glimpse into her holiday celebrations. The carousel featured Queen Bey in a preppy tweed jacket and skirt set which she wore over a white corset top. Although the look was surprisingly absent of metallics (a 2023 trend that she played a major role in popularizing thanks to her Renaissance Tour), Beyoncé devoted one photo to showcasing a large diamond raindrop necklace. Casual!
No one vacationed quite like Dua Lipa in 2023 and the singer kept her endless summer vacation going well into winter with an NYE trip to Jaipur, India. While celebrating alongside family and friends, Dua donned a dark brown halterneck gown by Tom Ford.
While other celebs were out partying on New Year’s Eve, Blake Lively kept her festivities low-key, celebrating at home (relatable!). In an Instagram Story, Lively shared that her evening was filled with smeared lipstick, martini earrings, sparkly Pat McGrath eyeshadow and a sweater that she didn’t realize she was wearing inside out (also relatable!).
Nicki Minaj welcomed 2024 dressed as a self-proclaimed “Alaïa Barbie,” wearing extra-long crimped blonde hair, an Alaïa off-the-shoulder crochet bodysuit and shiny Alaïa ankle booties. The crowd went crazy as Minaj performed her iconic songs at E11EVEN Miami — but just don’t ask her to perform “Starships.”
Victoria and David Beckham
The Beckhams were dressed to the nines while celebrating the 2024 at home with their children. Ever the pros at wearing subtly matching outfits, Victoria opted for an elegant emerald green, long-sleeve gown, while David donned a rich navy blue suit and spiffy brown dress shoes that complemented the jewel tone of his wife’s dress.
To celebrate alongside countless other celebs at E11EVEN Miami’s New Year’s Eve party, Julia Fox took the metallics trend into 2024 with a gunmetal grey, star-adorned cut-out dress, platform heels and a very NYE shiny top hat.
In an Instagram post with a hilariously Mariah Carey caption, the queen of Christmas poked fun at herself, saying she was taking a picture from her “bad side,” as she posed in a sparkly dress with her curly hair pinned in a half-up-half-down style. May we all feel as confident to step out of our comfort zones in 2024 as Ms. Mariah did for this photo.
