When Audrey Hepburn accepted the lead role in Breakfast at Tiffany's in 1961, you can bet she did not know then she would be setting a fashion trend that would play a major influence forty years later. She may have rejuvenated its fame but let us not forget who the true credit goes to.
Fashion Designer, Coco Chanel, created the alluring, chic style in 1926. It was originally named the "Ford" dress by American Vogue because it mimicked Henry Ford's Model T … it was an instant craze, widely available and, only available in black. During the twenties, black was synonymous with mourning. As the new Jazz age took center stage, Chanel's black dress with its seductive sleekness took on a different role for women … that of liberation and independence.
To this very day women have an unexplainable adoration for the simple design which magically flatters body types of every variation. It does not matter if you pay thirty dollars or, three hundred for it because the little black dress has a way of making you look and feel like a million dollar baby. All you have to do is add a simple pair of faux or, real pearls, custom jewelry and let us not forget, the perfect black pump or, stiletto heels … whichever you prefer.
And why, you ask? Because the little black dress is magical enough to suit any need.
