But first we'll discuss the Minnie Mouse thing. It's not as bizarre as you might think, as Lydia was actually attending a Disney Party in London last night (3 November) and naturally couldn't resist embracing the theme with a cute pair of pom-poms!
Headwear aside, it was Lydia's Lavish Alice frock that caught our eye thanks to the chic design and stylish feather trim. You can never go wrong with a LBD, the classic look is always in style, universally flattering and it can handle all the accessories you want to throw at it.
There is a downside to the simplistic design however, it can start to feel and look a bit repetitive after a few wears, but that needn't require abandoning the wardrobe staple entirely. Simply add feathers! Or pick up a pre-feathered design if you're not hot with the whole sewing thing.
Lydia's statement trim elevated her frock and added a chic festive feel without going down the OTT glitter route. Not always easy to strike the balance when it comes to party dress hunting, but this is one reality star who always picks out sophisticated styles.
Festive trims aren't just for sleeves though, Boohoo has an alternative design featuring a fun feather hem. We love how this eye-catching detail transforms the otherwise plain shift dress, and this is a winner for any clumsy eaters out there - compared to Lydia's look there's a far lower risk of dragging your feathers through the soup starter. Win.
Embracing the feathers? We love this look, and we're guessing someone else did too...
