We won't lie; finding the perfect little black dress is a challenge. It may be the style staple you can rely on, but there are still several factors you need to consider before committing to the one you love. There's the style, the cut, the embellishment; the list is endless...
We've been following Holland & Barrett's campaign focussing on feeling fantastic in your little black dress for the perfect night out this season - and to help you make the right LBD choices, we're putting our favourite style-savvy celebs under the spotlight.
If anybody knows how to look fabulous in a little black dress, it's the rich and famous.
Looking for LBD inspiration? Here are the best little black dresses of 2013.
A testament to classic elegance, Kate Middleton looked stunning in her lace Alice Temperley dress. Making an appearance at the recent SportsAid Charity Dinner; the 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge stood out for all the right reasons.
Its design was simple, yet stylish. Sporting a fitted knee-length number with lace detailing across the arms and skirt, the Duchess proved that less is more. Rather than opting for excessive lavish embellishments, she found an LBD that showcased her natural beauty. Her only accessories were a statement red clutch, Jimmy Choo pumps and her gorgeous pins.
Modern-day style icon Alexa Chung is a strong advocate of the little black dress. She's often snapped by the paparazzi in minimalist LBDs, dressed up with a trench coat and coloured bag.
The latest LBD choice of Chung's to catch our eye was that worn at the ‘Alexa for Eyeko collaboration' launch. Donning a suitably glamorous girly-girl Carven design, we loved her sophisticated style.
Its delicate basket-weave design made a statement without being too over the top. And her decision to shy away from conventional coloured heels in favour of pretty ballet-flats was a stroke of fashion genius.
A lady who's never too far away from the fashion headlines, it's no surprise that Victoria Beckham has made it into our top LBDs of 2013. Sporting one of her own designs at the recent film premiere of Class of 92, her outfit screamed Hollywood glamour.
In typical Beckham fashion, Victoria's LBD was cool, chic and effortless. Complementing her LBD with a pair of Casadei heels and gold clutch bag, she took influences from her AW13 collection and rocked the red carpet with aplomb.
Showing just a hint of colour in the entire ensemble, Beckham appreciates the beauty of the little black dress.
