The LBD just got a super sexy update.
There's no denying leather adds an instant edge to classic Little Black Dress shapes. Ladylike dresses like the cap sleeve Hugo Boss one Gwyneth Paltrow wore to a perfume launch in Madrid, or the flouncy frock Selita Ebanks donned for a cocktail reception in New York, remain sweet while gaining a little bit of spice, thanks to the addition of leather. Likewise, Kim Kardashian could have risked looking a bit matronly in Miami in her sheath dress with its below-the-knee hemline had she not opted for a sleek skin version.
Of course, for extra va-va-voom, leather can take an already sexy shape like Kate Walsh's The Row long-sleeved mini to sultry new heights. Kristen Stewart, who has adopted a more provocative style lately, also flaunted her curves in a similar dress by A.L.C. at an On the Road screening in New York.
Tell us what you think of this trend! Would you invest in a leather LBD?
