#TipTuesday: Little Black Dress

#TipTuesday is a series Max Agency — a successful model and talent management agency in Canada  — will be doing every week where we share helpful tips for the industry! This could be tips on auditions, bookings, and more!

This week’s tip is: “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.” —Karl Lagerfeld

The “little black dress” is legendary in the fashion industry. Known for it’s classic and simple look, the LBD actually has quite the history.

1920’s

Coco Chanel was the first designer to bring the little black dress to light in an issue of the American Vogue. This action changed the idea of black solely being worn for mourning purposes and reinvented it as a more chic option for women.

1930’s

The little black dress grew in popularity with the help of Hollywood and movies. Many actresses were featured wearing the garments as wearing black looked better on screen for black and white films.

1950’s

The notion of the LBD turned into one that was more risque. Women who wore them were seen as less innocent and wholesome. At the same time, they become more common and affordable due to the different materials they were being made from.

1960’s

Black dresses got smaller as the younger generations wanted to wear shorter and more revealing clothes. The dresses became more revealing in other ways as well, with additions of slits in the skirts and sheerer fabrics.

1980’s

The funkiness of the 80’s transferred to the new styles of little black dresses. The designs became a little less simple and began incorporating other dress styles that were popular at that time.

1990’s

While little black dresses remained a popular choice for evening wear, colour returned as a trend in fashion.  The LBD returned to simpler ways once again, some long and some short.

2000’s

With body insecurity becoming so common, the little black dress has truly made it’s return as black is found to be the most flattering colour. The trend of simplicity has also made it’s return, making the LBD a go to option for all special events.
