Whether it's for a birthday dinner or a formal ball, Eleanor Lam loves any excuse to dress up. And the young fashionista isn't afraid to take risks on the red carpet—you never know if she'll turn up in something bright and extravagant or simple and classy.
One thing's for certain: Eleanor always stands out from the crowd. Check out five of our favourite looks by November's cover star and learn how to recreate them.
Patterned Mix-Up in Burberry
Buckled snakeskin boots, a floral-embroidered dress and a chain-link studded purse—this combination isn't for the faint of heart, but Elly makes it work by using similar colour palettes and pulling it all together with a military-inspired jacket.
Old Hollywood Glamour in Alice McCall
When in doubt, draw inspiration from the classics. At the APA Ball, Elly stunned in a floral lace dress with a fur stole and just enough glittery jewellery to match. Add a red lip and side-swept curls for a timeless red carpet look.
Simple Statement in Louis Vuitton
This dress with the scarf print skirt makes for the perfect understated look, and Elly toughens up the outfit with a pair of Doc Martens. Her colour-matching is on point too, from the skirt's blue tones to her statement earrings to the navy hue of the boots.
The Right Layers in Fendi
Don't be afraid to play with textures as well as different silhouettes, like Elly has done here with a burnished gold dress gathered at the waist. Also, never underestimate the power of a good shoe to tie an outfit together—the forest green hue of these open-toe heels coordinates perfectly with her striped sleeves.
Sophisticated Charm in Moiselle
Here, Elly strikes the perfect mix between jazzy and demure, and it's all down to the details. The strappy sandals coordinate with the embroidered design of the bodice, while the contrast of the boxy clutch with the tutu-like dress keeps this outfit from looking boring.
