THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS


You would think I'm only interested by books and movies but that's not entirely true. I also have an obsession with stunning dresses, the one you only wear on the red carpet or to visit the Queen. Basically, the kind of dresses every girls dreams of, including me, but never wear, because we are not all Beyonce. For all the womens out there who slaver over pictures in the magazines, don't worry, there's always a solution to look like a Star day and night.
Let me tell you about the french icon of fashion, Coco Chanel, who back in 1926, had the idea to create a simple but classy black dress that she called « La petite robe noire ». Because wearing black is not only for funeral, the little black dress quickly become indispensable in every wardrobes, a basic for every women, a must have that stay through the ages. 
In all its forms, the little black dress is the star of fashion, the only clothing I recommend every women to own, from Haute Couture to most affordable brands, you can found the perfect dress for you everywhere. 

Some of the most beautiful actresses wore the little black dress in movies that become classic and inspired thousands of womens after them, from Jeanne Moreau to Marilyn Monroe and the iconic Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy for the timeless « Breakfast at Tiffany's », being elegant in the simpliest dresses is easy. 


Fashion is changing all the time, evolving, but the little black dress is not, still very present on the red carpet and in every wardrobes. Even the french perfumes designer Guerlain, released in 2012 « La petite robe noire », sexy but always smart, in tribute to Coco Chanel's most iconic creation. 




From the British fashion icon Kate Moss wearing Stella Mccartney, to the french top model and actress Laetitia Casta in Lanvin and most rencently the famous Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, nobody is looking bad wearing black.


So, if tonight you have a date in a fancy restaurant in Notting Hill or just a reunion with some girlfriends in a Central London Pub, or even just an evening at the Theater on the West End and you don't know what to wear, the answer is pretty clear.
Look in your dressing, the little black dress hanging there is the best choice.
