Sequined, crystallized, laced, or otherwise embellished by any means - the item that any woman should not be without takes an eye-catching plunge into the spotlight. One that mind require sunglasses in some cases. At thigh grazing lengths and finished off with bold cut-outs, the dull and boring thought off your basic old black is no more. Simplicity may be able to go a long way, but there is no shame in a little fashion pick-me-up ever now and again.
The little black dress, the lovely black dress, or merely the LBD, what ever you may call it, one thing that is for certain is that it isn't your mothers basic yet beautiful dress. With Louis Vuitton's introduction of the "Spicy" sandal, the question of "do you need to spice up your life?" has officially been raised.
Though with Christophe Decarnin's revival of Balmain, the little black dress has been given a new life long before Spring 2015. To some, hearing the words short, tight, and studded all together used to describe a dress may seem cringe worthy. But to anyone with eyes, there is no denying the instant success of Decarnin's magical way with a little black dress. With Peter Dundas's fresh start a Emilio Pucci, the designer takes the house noted for it's many eye-cathing prints and patterns, and finds a new way to drive the Pucci faithful wild. Which so happens to include me
How They Styled It:
1.) Making her round promoting her new movie, "Star Trek", Zoe Saldana left a path of fashion followers pleasantly stunned with mouth watering as took to the red carpet in her many amazing ensembles. One being an Emilio Pucci Fall 2015 dress fresh off of the runway. Which she paired with her Brian Atwood heels. The long sleeved sequined mini alone reminds me why Peter Dundas is one of my most beloved designers.
2.) Though she may be a teen idol and not yet the epitome of style, Taylor Swift proves to many teens alike that being on trend while still age-apporiate is all too possible. As shown her when the songstress wore a Collette Dinnigan Spring 2015 LBD with silver sequin embellishments.
3.) With Balmain currently ruling over the lives of the edgier crowd, well at least myself, a match made in heaven was witnessed when Selita Ebanks opted not to wear a Valentino creation to the "Valentino: The Last Emperor" New York Premire. Instead choosing a mind boggling Balmain Fall 2008 dress with cut-outs that were replaced with lace, then adorned with zippers and crystals. Can anything be more beautiful?
