I found the photograph below of Victoria Beckham and was struck by the gorgeous dress she was wearing. Her own design of course. I'm a great admirer of Victoria and I love her fashion style. And it's all style; so chic, sleek and classic. Victoria's dress in this instance is brilliant. Seemingly separate longitudinal sections of fabric are joined together to just below the knee with a fringe like effect to finish. A gorgeous dress for a beautiful and talented lady.

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS was introduced by Coco Chanel in the 1920's and it was a revolution for ladies back then because it gave them an easier time getting dressed due to it's relaxed design and it took them to any occasion:

Ah, Coco, an icon of style and chic. My great interest in the LBD are those which were worn by ladies from the '60's. I've noticed that black was usually reserved for evenings in the '60's and rarely seen used for day wear. It's true that an LBD can take you from morning to night seamlessly. It's all about changing one's accessories!
Couldn't not post a photo of Audrey Hepburn in her iconic gown which was designed by Hubert de Givenchy.
It was 1961 when the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's showcased this stunning gown to the delight of movie goers and the fashion industry at large. There is a wonderful article about the impact that Givenchy, Audrey and her dress had on '60's style below:
