When summer gets swinging, our eyes seem to collectively be drawn to bright, printed dresses that practically scream for sandals and frosty drinks. It seemed like a whole host of Hollywood ladies had little black dresses on the brain this weekend, though, and I was struck by how sharp they looked.
Fox threw a party on Sunday for its TV stars, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Melissa Fumero looked sweet in this flirty number that had a both a plunging neckline and a high lace one. Love the play on sexy and sweet.
Jessica Lucas was also at the Fox party in head-to-toe noir. The actress looked amazing in this corset-style top and sheer pencil skirt.
Lea Michele was near perfect in this simple, classic Preen dress at a film festival in Italy. The straps are set as far off the shoulder as possible, making for a super-flattering fit.
I know, I know—not an LBD, but Diane Kruger looked too stunning in this jumpsuit to not include (and, hey, it’s black!). It’s by Marios Schwab, and it’s got all kinds of cool details: the lace cutout, the one sleeve, the wide legs. It’s so fabulous.
The lesson? If you’re struggling over what to wear on your next date or to a pal’s wedding, at least pull the LBD out of the closet and give it a thought.
