The dancing starlet, who arrived in a Santa hat, looked stunning in Versace shoes and a Dennis Bassco for QVC white faux fur jacket as she sipped on hot chocolate and danced with candy cane stilt walkers and toy soldiers.

After stopping to roast chestnuts with The Palazzo’s chef “Sammy D” of FIRST Food & Bar, Smirnoff checked out the Strip’s only ice skating rink situated atop The Venetian’s outdoor canals. She gazed at the disco ball above and raved, “You can even go skating under your very own mirror ball trophy!”
