Marcia Cross and Christina Ricci may have stolen the show as they went head to head in a battle of the LBDs at the Disney Summer Press Tour event but giving our flair for sniffing out style, we couldn't help but also notice Elisha Cuthbert's, Ã la mode ensemble. Elisha who? Yes, we had to ask ourselves the same question but it's not the Canadian actress' fame (or lack of) that we are intrigued by; it's her micro-mini velvet LBD. Velvet is set to take the industry by storm this up coming season and if this sassy number is a sneak preview of things to come, then bring it on! Not only is this deluxe material plush and on-trend, it is also extremely wearable and warm marrying style and practicality in a heavenly fusion that will bring your LBD wardrobe up to date and keep you snug now that the temperature has started to drop. Contrasted with delicate lace, the heavy duty fabric sculpts an enviable physique whilst remaining feminine and elegant. Regrettably, we don't know the brains behind this particular velvet vestment but whether it be crushed, cut or twisted this luxurious fabric has featured on an incalculable number of runways recently. Alexander McQueen and Michael Kors are among the myriad of design houses that have indulged in the prevailing textile direction and we definitely haven't seen the last of it yet. If you too want to wrap up in style this Autumn and Winter, then look no further as, we have gathered our favourite velvet vices to tempt you with. Although we're loving Elisha's style, her rosy cheeks and soft blonde waves are not strong enough for this look- make sure you vamp up your velvet the high fashion way, with a slick of crimson lipstick and a sleek, scraped back hairdo. Velvet is coming in all shapes and sizes this season - giving you free reign to experiment with textural shoes, bags and accents. Get on this A/W trend early with LBD's collection of delectable velvet McQueen clutches.
