Since Coco Chanel introduced the “little black dress” in 1926, it has become the epitome of chic. Her first LBD was a slash-necked, short silk dress with only diagonal pin-tucks as decoration. American Vogue called it the “Ford.” Like Henry Ford’s Model-T car. Today, as was true over 80 years ago, the LBD is synonymous with elegant simplicity. It is my go to staple that can be dressed up or down to match any ocassion.
When Audrey Hepburn wore a Givenchy designed long sheath dress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s it created an unforgettable image in our minds that is still thought of as the classic little black dress moment.
Recently, I even had a little black dress moment of my own!
|Thanks, Coco! (and my husband for the perfect Chanel accessory!)|
