Ponte Ruffle Dress

Ponte Ruffle Dress

Turning 88 this Year, the iconic little black dress is one of the most timeless classics the fashion world has ever produced. Even after several decades, this style still remains evergreen and the most covetable of all. No wonder, the term “little black dress” has found itself a place in the New Oxford Dictionary!

Here are some interesting facts you didn’t know about the LBD -

  • A simple pen and ink drawing of the LBD by fashion’s forward thinker Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel first appeared in the Vogue magazine in May 1926. The editors called it “Chanel’s Ford”, because they thought it can be compared to the affordable yet classy black Ford Model T automobile.
  • Max Fleischer’s Betty Boop, the popular squeaky-voiced cartoon character of the early 1930s, often wore LBDs.
  • The first LBDs were long-sleeved and had calf-length skirts!
  • The LBD worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” sold for 607,300 euros ($807,616) at a recent auction in London. It was designed by Hubert de Givenchy.
  • Though a bevy of celebs steal the show with impressive versions of the LBD quite often, one of the most popular and daring versions was donned by the British beauty Elizabeth Hurley! A dozen oversized gold safety pins held her Black Versace dress together when she attended the premiere of “Four Weddings and a Funeral” in 1994. Since then, it’s called “That dress”!
