We don't get shocked easily here at Littleblackdress.co.uk but when we saw these pictures of Courtney Love looking beautiful in a lace maxi dress we had to do a double take. The rocker isn't known for her love of glamourous evening wear but she stunned onlookers last night at the Metropolitan Opera season opening night of L'Elisir D'Amore in New York with her choice of black dress. Swapping her usual grungy hair, lacklustre complexion and less than flattering attire, she rocked up with glowing skin and a sophisticated up-do in a gorgeous full-length gown. Her many tattoos were covered up by a sleek lace sleeve, turning the one-time hell raiser into a gothic princess. Finally, Courtney's favourite look is on trend! Lace was all over the A/W12 catwalks and her sheer sleeves with classic detailing are great if you want to cover up your arms. This Peridot London Dress is perfect if you don’t want to wear a maxi but like the lace sleeve detail. Or if you would prefer to cover your arms completely the Reiss Rubik Dress is stunning. The lace pattern and bodycon fit keep the look sexy without showing any skin. However if you want to try full on gothic glamour then look no further than this lace maxi from Z-Mode. Lace details are the easiest way to look on trend this winter so keep checking Littleblackdress.co.uk for the latest lace dresses.
