Buying an LBD (Little Black Dress) is not as simple as it seems. While they’re all black, what’s key is how it looks on you – the cut, the sleeve length, the dress length even – all of it matters. The LBD is not a trend that can come and go, it’s rather a style statement. A statement that will stay with you, and how! You need to see the LBD as an investment, not just a mere fashion choice you made.
“Everything I learned I learned from the movies,” said Audrey Hepburn once. It’s important to note that a lot many things that we (as a race) know about fashion, we know from her movies. Even though the LBD came into the picture in 1926, introduced to us by Coco Chanel, it was Hepburn’s films that made this little black dress into a style statement that we so often talk about today.
And so, we looked back at re-creating one of our favorite LBD looks from recent times – Deepika Padukone at the trailer launch of her film, Chhapaak (styled by Shaleena Nathani). For the launch event, Padukone wore a full sleeves black dress from New Zealand based Emilia Wickstead and heels from Italian brand Giuseppe Zanotti. The actress opted for diamond earrings, heavy eye makeup and her signature sleek hairdo to go with the look, and nothing about this appearance was a miss. It was a perfect ten on ten and so we looked up websites and brought the dress for you! We also have heels from the same brand and earrings to go with your look. You can push your hair behind like Padukone or get a blow dry and let your hair loose, the choice is yours.
