The little black dress is a staple in many closets. Simple, timeless and always chic, there are ways to give it a modern makeover. Even so, keeping it classic always makes an impact, too.
The actresses were on media tours promoting their latest films — Rose in “The Meg” and Dobrev in “Dog Days.”
While making her way to “Live With Kelly and Ryan,” Rose took a fashion-forward approach with her LBD by teaming it with sexy-meets-sporty pumps.
The Australian stunner wore a sleeveless black shift dress by Veronica Beard that incorporated a round collar and white stitching. On her feet she rocked gold Fendi pumps featuring a pointy white cap-toe, mesh panels near the toebed and chunky, athletic-looking straps around the midfoot and counter on a 4-inch heel. The luxury fashion house’s pumps come in a variety of colors and retail for $850.
Meanwhile, Dobrev took a traditional approach to the LBD — sensuality not spared. The former “Vampire Diaries” star sizzled in a black curve-hugging velvet Christopher Kane minidress that boasted a square neckline and mid-length sleeves. Rather than a pump, she lengthened the appearance of her legs with Stuart Weitzman’s Nudist sandal.
Weitzman’s Nudist sandal is detailed by delicate straps on a 4.5-inch stiletto heel. The shoes create the illusion of length because it doesn’t cut the body off at the feet; they call attention to the flattering lines of the foot and have a barely-there appearance. The sandals are a celeb-favorite and are available in several colors for around $400.
