|More like MBBD’s — Major Ball Black Dresses.|
You must not miss the Little Black Dress exhibition at the Mona Bismarck American Center for Art and Culture.*
I’ve been intending to write about this extraordinary show for several days, but have been in Paris non-stop attending to all the details and chores I must accomplish before I leave for the States next month. So, if you are alreadyau courantplease forgive me.
It really is not necessary for me search for the perfect prose in praise of the LBD. We all know everything has been said and we know it’s all true.

Organized by the Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art and curated by American Vogue contributing editor, the brilliant Andé Leon Talley, the LBD traces the historical and contemporary impact and influence of fashion’s most singular sartorial statement.
As the catalog says: “The exhibition highlights the strength of individualism, charting the evolution of the little black dress from its native definition of invariable propriety, to new and distinctly contemporary explorations of texture, tone and silhouette.”
