It's officially party season, which means cocktail dresses are more decorative, festive and fun this time of year. From playful embellishments and rich fabrics to flirty details and sexy silhouettes, the hottest frocks exude excitement and creative styling. 

Take Stella McCartney's knee-length halter dress with swingy fringe detailing, seen in both yellow and black. This show-stopping number has showed up on a number of stylish celebs throughout the season and you better believe we're taking notes! 

Anne Hathaway first donned the flirty fringed design in New York for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman this summer and wowed us with her unexpectedly edgy vibe. Months later we spotted Salma Hayek in an identical look at the British Fashion Awards in London to toast the award-winning designer.

The following day Kylie Minogue was all smiles in her sunny yellow version of the dress (which features a rich brocade fabrication) while promoting her new fashion book, Kylie/Fashion; which immediately reminded us of Kerry Washington's vibrant look earlier this month at the American Music Awards.

Yes indeed, it's all from the same resort 2013 collection! Only this time, the star opted for a a more demure frock with a lovely long-sleeved lace overlay in the same radiant shade and paired it with glossy coral platform pumps. By far, our favorite among the four. 

One thing's for sure: fringe is in full effect!
