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.
Ruby Rose and Nina Dobrev mastered the art of executing the look in both ways on Wednesday.
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.
