Victoria Beckham dices with death putting the fairy on the top of her tree last year

Victoria Beckham dices with death putting the fairy on the top of her tree last year

1. Manolo Blahnik

Ain’t nothing wrong with matching your shoes to your tree. We’re rather taken with those red and white striped baubles, too.

2. Alber Elbaz

We SO wish we had a tree decoration in our likeness. Although we’re not as cool as Alber, so maybe it’s for the best…

3. Jeremy Scott

Moschino’s Jeremy Scott ditched the actual Christmas tree this year and went for an illustration instead. Saves on the Hoovering…

4. Matthew Williamson

Fir trees just aren’t very Matthew Williamson, so the designer strung his fairy lights on a palm tree instead. SO much more fitting.

5. Henry Holland

What’s more exciting about InStyle’s resident columnist’s tree – the decorations or the piles and piles of pressies underneath?

6. Roberto Cavalli

The age-old problem of not having the floor-space for a tree (move the sofa? Squeeze the tree next to the telly?) solved by genius Mr Cavalli – put it on the ceiling instead. Turns out this is a trend (see Victoria Beckham)

7. Jean Paul Gaultier

Lost the fairy for the top of the tree? Take inspiration from Monsieur Gaultier and recycle your JPG perfume tin (or a baked beans can if you don’t have one) into a star ornament.

8. Jonathan Saunders

Guys, no-one’s going to take any notice of your tree if you pop a bauble on your dog’s collar – Jonathan Saunders’ Staffie-whippet cross Amber looks totally adorable in her festive attire.

9. Katie Hillier

We love how busy this tree is, proving that when it comes to Christmas, and if in doubt, over-decorate!

10. Diane Von Furstenberg

There’s nothing like a themed tree, and who knew red leopard print could be so festive?

11. Roksanda Ilincic

Another designer keen on saving trees (see Jeremy Scott), Roksanda’s cotton reel tree makes a pretty picture – love the bow on the top.

12. Gareth Pugh

Would you expect anything less from Gareth Pugh than an edgy, angular, futuristic tree?

13. Victoria Beckham

Well, there’s no point decorating your tree if it’s upside down is there? The baubles would all fall off! We’re a bit worried about where VB’s going to put her gifts though…

14. Sophia Webster

Who says Christmas has to be all red and green and gold sparkles? #pink
