It’s the Little Black Dresses world and we’re just living in it. Will there be anything more effortlessly stylish than an LBD? I don’t think so.

This sartorial staple is the wardrobe addition you’ll return to again and again (and again). Whether you’re stuck with what to wear to any event, that at last isn’t on Zoom, or you’re in need of something to ramp your confidence to level 100, a little black dress has you covered.

We were recently treated to Lady Gaga gracing us with a beautiful tulle sleeve LBD straight from Christian Siriano’s Pre-Fall 22’ collection, as always transforming the classics to a full fashion moment. Would we expect anything less?

Back in December, Hailey Bieber stepped out in a black, long sleeve, square neckline, micro-mini dress by Acne Studios, reminding us exactly why we love black tights. Úrsula Corberó also appeared last year in an Alexandre Vauthier take on the classic black dress, one that came covered in shimmering black sequins and floor length tassels.

Things may have come a long way since the original silhouette of Coco Chanel’s 1920s black midi dress or Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but the LBD is still as alluring as ever.

At the recent couture shows, black dresses stole the show left, right and centre. Schiaparelli’s collection saw black dresses which mesmerised, with cascading 3D ribbons of gold that erupted from the neckline, tulle LBDs that swept up into enormous hats and conical bodices which put Madonna’s cone bra to shame.

Supermodel Kristen Menamy opened Valentino's Haute Couture show in a cut-out velvet mini black dress and stockings that I’m predicting will steal many an upcoming red-carpet moment. Over at Chanel, the maison's sheer black dress iteration came adorned with feathers and beads and ribbons (oh my!).

Over on TV screens, the little black dress is capturing the hearts of Gen Z, one Euphoria episode at a time. Series 2 of the HBO show saw everyone’s favourite, Maddy, don the cut out LBD of dreams causing internet searches for this outfit to soar. It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

A personal little-black-dress (of sorts) highlight of mine was Maude Apatow in Saint Laurent at the Euphoria premier, completely updating the simple black dress to an absolute show stopper of a look, crystals and all.
