It’s time to roll out the red carpet as we toast the best dresses in the business for the Little Black Dress Oscars! Just like the stars taking to Tinseltown this weekend for the 88th
Academy Awards, in these fabulous frocks anyone can be an LBD VIP.
So without further ado, allow us to present the winners for our ten-standout categories:
Who else but timeless beauty Audrey Hepburn herself to inspire what has become our best-selling LBD of all time? The sartorial Gods wouldn’t have it any other way. The simple yet impeccable cut of this elegant cocktail dress with soft-touch crepe material is wonderfully classic and will ensure you look picture perfect from all angles, especially with an opulent ostrich feather trim adding a final finishing touch.
Those on a budget can still find the perfect dress for their special event thanks to this season’s must-have dress from Goddiva. In summer’s pretty pink colour palette, this dress has a couture-worthy shape, and beautiful design features that are far beyond its modest price tag.
It’s the first thing we get excited to buy every summer, so naturally we fell in love when this effortlessly elegant, perfect holiday number from Forever Unique landed on site. The floaty maxi skirt is perfect for the warmer weather abroad and the off-the-shoulder design will bare just the right amount of flesh to show off your tan.
With an elegant silhouette and a bardot neckline, this stunning evening gown oozes elegance and sophisticated charm making it the perfect option for formal black tie events. Look and feel like a modern day screen siren with a subtle fishtail hem and a sleek design which perfectly highlights your curves.
Nothing says spring is in the air like a pretty floral dress. With a nipped in waist and flared, box pleated skater skirt, this dress gives you the perfect hourglass figure you’ve been hiding all winter with a pretty print that's sure to put a spring in your step.
One of SS16's sweetest colours, this refreshing pistachio shade was a favourite on the catwalks of Burberry Prorsum and Rochas, and beautifully suits this flawless lace design by Forever Unique. Sheer look lace, quirky lattice detailing and a timeless shape makes this the dress of the season and still a popular choice for years to come.
Look like an A-List celebrity in this heavenly evening dress, the elegant silhouette combined with the sparkling sequins evoke an iconic old Hollywood feel. This glamorous maxi dress is sequin gilded from head-to-toe and would leave no head unturned at your evening event. Beautifully classic, with shimmering black beads that reflects the light for a true red carpet finish, this is a timeless design created for ultimate glamour.
For glamour from another era, look no further than this beautiful 1920s style flapper dress. This opulently beaded dress is worthy of an invitation from the Great Gatsby himself, in a dropped waist design reminiscent of the decadent flapper era, it gives you plenty of room to Charleston your way through the night.
Channeling actress and style icon Kristen Stewart’s most striking red-carpet moments, this stunning evening maxi gown in a soft blush pink is the perfect prom update to a traditional ball gown. Lavished with sequins across a deep v-neckline and featuring a low plunging open back, this dress will create a sexy A-list look that’s fresh for summer.
Turn up the heat in this sensually draped party dress, with a seductive wrap-style halter neck, this subtle but very sexy dress is sure to turn heads.
