As seen on a few brave souls, sequins complement black and steal the show when used as a supplemental condiment to a largely black ensemble. Martin Beruc's sequin blazer by UK brand Unconditional comes from L.E.S. boutique Any Old Iron. Albert's shiny skull necklace adds a swanky touch to his black and white skull patterned shirt.

Two things I notice tonight--some of the best things in life come in pairs (i.e. gloves, earrings, shoes, to name a few) and wearing something pretty always draws a crowd. When haute handbags, expensive watches and diamond rings disappoint, why not wear a hot or high profile human on your arm as an accessory? Alex McCord's black leather outfit couldn't look better with a stylish Simon van Kempen on her arm!
