PARIS: Little Black Dress

Ah, those three special words: Little Black Dress. The LBD can always be counted upon to provide instant class, and the variations are endless. These days, according to Vogue’s André Leon Talley, it need not even be little. The influential editor and Savannah College of Art & Design trustee curated a darkly inspirational exhibit at the SCAD Museum of Art this past fall, and now it’s on the move, gracing Paris’ Mona Bismarck American Center from July to September. “Little Black Dress” brings together 80 stunning pieces from the likes of Balenciaga, Pierre Cardin, Proenza Schouler, Tom Ford, Madame Grès, Zac Posen, L’wren Scott, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Dianne Von Furstenberg, Prada, and of course, Chanel. So if you’re in Paris this summer, be sure to check out this breathtaking collection of some of the world’s best Little (and not so little) Black Dresses. —Ashley Churchill
