The sad news that Whitney Houston had passed away this weekend has rocked not just fans of her music, but also those who grew up being inspired by her voice, her wardrobe and her love of life. Team LBD would like to pay tribute to a woman who knew how to work a little black dress...

From Egyptian headdresses for elaborate pop videos and haute couture heels for countless award ceremonies and charity balls to sequin clad shoulder pad jackets circa 1980 and skin-tight leather skirts Whitney Houston has kept the world in style and in love with her fashion-forward frocks as well as the woman in them since she first graced our screens all those years ago. A truly talented and stylish lady, who will be sorely missed.
