Little Giant

Just one hundred years ago, the black dress was dark and depressing. It was only the traditional attire of mourning for widows in mourning to ensure that their dead husbands not come knocking late at night. Fortunately, the great Coco Chanel had a vision, and in 1926, she rescued the lone black dress morbid reputation. It has since been reinvented in the LBD, little black dress. The rest, you might say, is fashion history. Here's a look at the 10 most memorable LBDS all time.

10. At first glance, it seemed like no more than a piece of black fabric held together by a giant safety pins. That's Versace dress Elizabeth Hurley in the 1994 premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral. That was literally little black dress, and although he was severely criticized at the time, was certainly memorable. It paved the way for the short and the now extinct giant safety pin trend (does anyone even remember that?).

9. It's hard to put a list together without Kirsten Dunst makes an appearance. In this case, who can forget the number Rodarte oh so feminine wearing Spider-Man 3's 2007 opening in London? It was almost eerie how the LBD in contrast with her pale skin, of course, completing a look that was romantic, ethereal, and incredibly fresh.

8. Even before became the Halle Berry, Halle Berry already had his own style. She turned her head back in the 1992 Soap Opera Digest Awards when she was dancing right in getting one strapless, poufy, LBD full skirt that looked suspiciously like Karl Lagerfield creation of a. She could have been almost unknown then, but his press coding for the photos!

7. Very few people can make a dress that looks like something the fish catch, but did Gwyneth Paltrow at the premiere of 2008 Iron Man in Rome. Gwyneth stunned onlookers when he reached the red carpet wearing a misleading peculiar creation of Jean Paul Gaultier. At first glance, seemed outrageously transparent – a surprise, considering that is always restrained Ms. Paltrow.

6. If a person who is easily found in black dresses in abundance, is Reese Witherspoon. Viewed in promoting its movie version in the Toronto Film Festival in a form-fitting strapless Jean Paul Gaultier creation, Reese seemed fabulously elegant and seductive. With plenty of diamond accessories, Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps and squeeze, Jake Gyllenhaal's look is nothing less than historical.

5. Of course, who can forget the black lace cocktail dress immortalized by Julia Roberts in the fairy tale to end all fairy tales, Pretty Woman? It's a classic. Enough said.

4. Who would have though a star would be caught dead wearing something that was originally intended for recycling? Good, looks like it could happen, like the black bandage dress Cindy Crawford was the 100th anniversary of Vogue magazine in 1993. Since it was created by Herve Leger in 1985, the clothing has made numerous returns.

3. Devilish – that's what Nicole Kidman wore LBD for the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. With a simple blouse, beautiful diamond studded straps, and a rear that mocks the creation of Jean Paul Gaultier is nothing less than impressive!

2. Of course, you can not have a list without Victoria LBDS Beckham in it. Spice Girls of their day to its reputation of Mrs. Beckham, Posh seems to not be seen without one for long. Who can lose be-dress with ribbons Giambattista Valli leading to the TomKat wedding in 2006? Even Philip Treacy hat is unforgettable.

1. And finally, who can forget Audrey Hepburn the legendary black suit, 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany's? Sold for  £ 410,000 at auction in 2006, Givenchy LBD is undoubtedly a star in her own right!

Undoubtedly, LBDS are forever. And we owe it all to a woman named Coco.
