Celebrities wearing Little Black Dresses

The little black dress is a wardrobe staple that will never let you down, and particularly perfect for New Year’s Eve. Timeless, versatile and universally flattering, the humble LBD has a lot going for it.

When it comes to working the holiday party circuit, we can’t think of anything in our closets that’s as versatile as a little black dress. Year after year, the LBD has helped us go from the office potluck to our family dinner party to our bestie’s annual bash — all with a little accessorizing.

This year, we’re turning to our favourite trendsetters for the best little black dress styling tips. Whether you’re going for minimalist chic or bold and beautiful, these top celebrity photos are about to help you re-imagine your favourite LBD.

Whether you’re giving it a quirky twist à la Alexa Chung, or sexy simplicity is more your deal (Kate Moss, we’re looking at you), this gallery is sure to get you excited about reimagining your favourite little black number this weekend.

Jennifer Hawkins turned out to Derby Day in Sydney wearing a leather incarnation of the LBD. We particularly love the edgy mix of high-shine and matte leather.
