Emma Milner (Deputy Fashion Editor)

What sort of a party is it?

A Winter Woods-themed cocktail party.

Where is it taking place?

Inside a big, empty room which has been decorated with snow-topped trees, fairy lights, holly, ivy, twigs and other festive sylvan features. If an ice bar and pine cone fire don’t suffice, then a projection of the Planet Earth episode Seasonal Forests would be playing to really make sure everyone realised it was set in the woods.

Who would you invite, and why?

David Attenborough. Obviously. Giles Deacon for his Bambi dress, Muicia Prada for her ‘fruity, floral and woody’ perfumes, Alexander McQueen for his numerous enchanted woodland runway shows. Friends and family and the usual woodland folk.

What would you wear as the host?

A silver lame maxi dress (pretty icy looking eh) with an ivy headdress.

What are you serving?

Christmas log! Hog roast, game pie, woodland mushroom risotto, pigs in blankets, roast chestnuts and black forest gateau. Winter pimms, mulled cider and wine.

What’s on your Christmas wishlist?

Getting my camera fixed.

Laura Butterfield (Deputy Editor)

What sort of a party is it?

On first impression it would look like a classy affair, the kind of event with cheese on sticks, countered by copious amounts of free alcohol and descending into Oxford’s finest Friday night establishment on a Friday night, by name and by nature – Wahoo.

Where is it taking place?

I’m going to say New York, the Upper East Side obviously. All the prestige and drama of a Gossip Girl party. Nothing says festive spirit like a bitch fight and a love triangle.

Who would you invite and why?

Karl Lagerfeld for a dash of the inspirational bizarre, Oscar Wilde for witty banter and general debauchery, Nigella Lawson because she is a goddess and One Direction because it’s my party and I can have whoever I want. Even if it’s wrong.

What would you wear as the host?

Oooh at the moment, probably something floor length and sparkly by Elie Saab – my favourite from the couture offerings for A/W 2010.

What are you serving?

Cheese. As the main ingredient to everything.

What’s on your Christmas wishlist?

Lady GaGa’s wardrobe – just for jokes and bop costumes. Honest.
