We’ve been hearing little whispers here and there as the party season approaches about a new, fresh alternative to the trusty LBD (little black dress) that we all rifle out as the party invitations and events begin to mount up – the little white dress. With images of footballers wives and Essex nights out in our minds, we were unconvinced until today, when we saw the pictures of Natalie Portman in New York wearing a white mini-dress from Christian Dior, and frankly looking better than we ever have in our LBDs. So we’ve had to reconsider.
And it’s not just Miss Portman that has traded black for white – the colour was all the rage at the various fashion weeks that have just been and gone, sported by the likes of Diane Kruger and Leigh Lezark. It’s favoured too by modern icon Alexa Chung, who recently wore a very ruffled and feminine LWD (little white dress) out to the GQ Men of the Year awards. If Miss Chung is wearing it, then you know you’re probably on to a good thing.
