From the most anticipated holiday fashion collaboration to this colorized remake of a TV Christmas classic, December never looked so merry and bright. Read on for the details on these and seven more events that will make the most wonderful time of year even more special.
Anthropologie Shoe Collab2 of 10
Shoe designer Matt Bernson has teamed with Grace Atwood (the blogger behind Stripes and Sequins) to create a capsule shoe collection that arrived at Anthropologie this month. Needless to say, any excuse to wear ballet flats in lieu of heels to those holiday parties has us completely on board.

Glo's New Book3 of 10
OK, guilty—this is a shameless plug, but one that we think you'll be excited about: Glo's e-book, Pretty Women: True Stories of Obsession, Aging and Acceptance, is now available! The book features some of our favorite female writers talking about food addiction, cosmetic surgery, Kim Kardashian and more.
SHOP NOW: Pretty Women, $1.99, amazon.com
"Christmas, With Love"4 of 10
Leona Lewis—the British singer and X Factor winner—adds her voice to the holiday tunes mix with the debut of her album Christmas, With Love. Enjoy her soulful versions of the classics ("Winter Wonderland" and "O Holy Night") as well as her original "One More Sleep" that just might start a dance party in your living room.
L'Wren Scott Holiday Collection5 of 10
Finally—we get to experience what Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Sarah Jessica Parker have long known: the incredible fit of L'Wren Scott's designs. The Banana Republic L'Wren Scott Holiday Collection launched Dec. 5, which features tailored metallic dresses, sequined sweaters and cute PJs we wouldn't mind being photographed in come Christmas morning.
SHOP NOW: L'Wren Scott Collection, bananarepublic.com
"American Hustle"6 of 10
A reckless FBI agent, a cunning con man, his seductive partner and a volatile politician are just a few of the characters that make up this twisting plot fused with deception, corruption and passion. If that's not enough to pique your interest, the talents of Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams and Christian Bale together in one film should do the trick.
"The Voice" Finale7 of 10
Now that Team CeeLo is out (moment of silence for Caroline Pennell), will it be someone from Team Adam, Team Christina or Team Blake? Find out at 8/9c on NBC, when the winner will be announced. And if you can spare an extra night of TV (Don't you have some gifts to wrap anyway?), watch on the 16th at 8/7c when the artists give their final performance in hopes of earning your vote.
"I Love Lucy" Christmas Special8 of 10
As part of the countdown to Christmas, CBS will air two newly colorized episodes of I Love Lucy: the rarely seen "Christmas Episode" and the memorable grape-stomping one. If there's one person capable of giving you the ultimate dose of holiday cheer, it's Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred (especially with all of them dressed as Santa). Catch it on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
"French Women Don't Get Facelifts"9 of 10
From the writer of French Women Don't Get Fat comes the next installment of no-nonsense advice about how to age with style and confidence, all without going under the knife. Amidst the spate of self-improvement tomes and diet guides released in December, the book offers a refreshing, c'est-la-vie perspective.
SHOP NOW: French Women Don't Get Facelifts, $16, amazon.com
"August: Osage County"10 of 10
If you thought your family had issues, just wait. The film August: Osage County, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, opens in select theaters today. The story focuses on the dark, yet comical relationship shared between the women of the Weston family (played by Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis and Julianne Nicholson) and the dysfunctional woman (Meryl Streep) who raised them.
