Get gorgeous this holiday season with our Top 5 Party Dresses of 2012. Whether you're looking for the perfect little black dress, going for a rock star sequined look, or looking as pretty as a holiday present, we've got the styles you're looking for...

#5 Pretty as a present

This champagne pink sequined bow trimmed dress from Forever 21 is the antidote to the little black dress and ho-ho-ho red everyone else will be wearing this year. We love the little black bow at the waist, because the best things come wrapped in a little black bow!

#4 Lovely in red lace

Think Back to September when Taylor Swift rocked this dress. Perky, sweet and retro, this red lace number is perfect for a holiday gathering whether you're celebrating the ho-ho-holidays with family or out on the town. The Fit and Flare Iris dress is one celebrity outfit you can actually own (for a mere $198 from French Connection).

#3 Silver belle

Silver dresses should stay in your closet until holiday season... unless, of course you're a hot celeb like iCarly's Miranda Cosgrove. She totally rocked this cute little silver dress at the 2012 Nick Teen Choice awards and you can rock it at your next holiday party, too!

#2 LBD

Three cheers for the Little Black Dress (LBD) in all of its beautiful forms! This one's just different enough that you won't fade into the background at any party. We love it for its asymmetry (one sleeve long, one sleeve gone) and its draped dramatic shoulder. ($79 from Newly Maid.)

#1 Not-so-heavy metal

This metallic tube LBD (little black dress) is tops on our chart this year. Coming to you from price-friendly Forever 21, this jacquard metallic-blend tube dress features a sweetheart bodice with front and back boning for shape and structure. It comes with adjustable elastic spaghetti straps, in case you need the extra support. Our favorite feature: the pleated and slanted pockets in the front.  It sells for $32.80 on their website and in stores.

Im sorry that you has such friends that seems to enjoy entertaining themselves by being mean to you.  They is just people that you hangs out with cos you says you hasnt anyone else to hang out with.... not friends.  I doesnt think you should think of them as friends either and then its gonna be easier to move on. Is there any way you can hang out with other people by eg [what other posters said] taking up the new activities? And you has friends on KW :) :D

If they call you fat and stupid, they are not your friends. Your so called 'friends' are just using you. You need to find your truest friends. Clearly, they are not your truest friends.

Society will not be soft to you always, just because YOU are soft. You must have a strong background. Also they are not your friends. You know what they are doing to you?They are packing a gift box looking all attractive (friendship) and filled with hurt ...like Pandora's box.  Just move on. Be alone n discover more of the world. Or just make new friends.I was in a state like you some months back. Now I moved on n I have 3 best friends. That time I thought too that they r my only friends. You will not find the world until you set out for the world.

They are not your friends, really. You should leave them and move on. This might sound difficult, but being alone is better than being with an untrue friend. You'll make better friends soon, anyway. Plus, WE are here for you! :D
