Not far from my apartment, along the busy avenue de New York, is a little gem of a place called the Mona Bismarck American Center for Art and Culture. I visited it once before to see an exhibit of sketches by Mary Cassatt. Recently it was the venue for a delightful exhibition called Little Black Dress, organized by the Savannah College of Art and Design and curated by Vogue Contributing Editor Andre Leon Talley. The exhibit is over, but I know that many of my fashion followers will enjoy the photographs of these amazing dresses, most of which were on loan from designers or were donated by very well-heeled and well-dressed women. The dresses ranged in age from the early 1900’s to the present, and all were stunning.
Which was your favorite little black dress?

Great blog 🙂 Keep up doing so !
Don’t mind checking out mine for italian fashion!
I would love that long black leather dress!!!
If only I had the body and chutzpah to wear some of those- such as the long sleeve with the peekaboo slits!
Love them all. Though there’s nothing little about some of them, my favorite is the formal halter one with the train, the appliques on the back skirt, and the bare back with ropey things on it. Either that or the one with the tummy cut out. My white, flabby belly would look awesome in it.
DIVINE!! OMG………… thank you Only in Paris:)
