The little black dress is an evening staple.Â It’s the perfect attire for everything from a summer dinner party to a night out at the club. But sometimes that little black dress can get a little bit boring.Â That’s why we need our celeb fashionistas out there to show us how to revamp it! There are tons of new ways to wear the little black dress. Let our style stars show you how it’s done!
Nicole Richie: Cardigan
Nicole Richie doesn’t follow the pack.Â While other celebutantes head to major events in strapless LBDs and funky black frocks, she likes stand out from the crowd by throwing on a cardigan to oomph up her look. At a Mid City event in Sydney, Australia this month, Nicole added a sparkly cardigan to her bedhead locks, boho clogs, and little black dress.
Whether it’s a summery cardigan in an easy, bright color, a cropped leather jacket or a sharp-shouldered blazer,Â you too can kick it up a notch by wearing a jacket to rev up your beautiful black attire.Â
Ease up your sharp black minidress with an asymmetrical cardi from the label led by the queen of boho chic.
Katherine Heigl: Conservative
You don’t have to bare it down to there to get noticed.Â Take a style cue from Katherine Heigl and rock a conservative LBD that doesn’t cut in all the wrong places. Katherine’s bouffant wasn’t the only thing that got the crowd buzzing at the recent London premiere of her new film. They were also whispering in wonder about her sleek conservative sheath made by none other than Victoria Beckham. While the dress was structured and chic, it still had a well-placed slit in front that left it all up to the imagination.Â
Covered up can be cool, too especially when it’s a short-sleeve wool-blend dress by the beautiful Bottega Veneta.Â
Victoria Beckham: Futuristic
The future is now! Metallics, sparkles, and shine are all the rage and it doesn’t stop where the LBD is concerned. Just take a look at Victoria Beckham’s cinched Giles corset minidress at a party to celebrate designer Diane von Furstenberg.Â She’s telling us all it’s time to give that typical little black dress a big old boost into the 21st century.
You too can rock a space-age look in a little black dress, but you don’t have to limit yourself to corsets and metals. Luscious leather is just as lavish, mod, and fresh. The shiny fabrics adds a cool vibe to the futuristic fashion forecast.Â

Kate Bosworth: Peekaboo
Dare to try this at home? Kate Bosworth doesn’t mind! If you can pull it off, the peekaboo dress is the perfect way to rock a funky black frock.Â Kate’s peekaboo Preen was the hit of the True Blood premiere and we’d like to think it was because she knows how to work her whimsical LBD in a whole new way!
She’s not the only one. Zoe Saldana, Whitney Port, and Christina Aguilera have all tried it out, though some are so much more daring then others.Â Zoe had a see-through lace collar on hers, while Whitney whipped up a backless bod with her long-sleeve LBD. Christina Aguilera, often the most daring of the bunch, didn’t disappoint with a studded peekaboo dress and purple pumps!
If you got the guts, then you got the glamour! Herve Leger revamps his modern bandage dress with sexy, sleek cutouts. Just add sassy heels and some bold gold jewelry.Â
