l b d : the little black dress

Audrey Hepburn a la Breakfast at Tiffany's
The little black dress 
has been a go-to item in women's closets for  decades.

With the holidays approaching,
make sure you have one in your closet.  
It can be accessorized in infinite ways
and is always a classic.

Anne Hathaway dresses hers up with a gorgeous red peep-toe.

Vogue magazine said that
the LBD
would become
"a sort of uniform for all women of taste."

Wallace Simpson, the Duchess of Windsor
was quoted as saying,
"When a little black dress is right,

there is nothing else to wear in it's place."

Innovator Coco Chanel

Look at that figure on Natalie Wood!

"Black outfits are being paired with
 a single embellishment such as
the fabulous little black dress
with a pearl detail at the neck -very Audrey Hepburn." 
--Betsy Thompson 

There she is!

P.S. Even Elaine sported an LBD
 in this famous dance scene!

You amassed a lovely collection of LBDs on some really fabulous women. Hard to pick a favorite but I think I have to go with vintage Liz Taylor and the awesome Natalie Wood. Today's contemporaries will go down in the history books eventually! Mostly I just love that young and old women are dressing really, really well. I can't think how much fun it is to be rich, with a great figure and be able to buy fab, exceptionally-sewn clothes with sumptuous fabrics. It's wearable art.
