The LBD trend never really goes away, getting reincarnated into modern iterations that keep the little black dress in style, year after year, season after season. And while it's never "out," it can have periods of heavy rotation, such as it has (so far) this year. On the cusp of crisp fall days, we present you with celebrity LBD lovers, some of whom are such fans of the LBD we had to include more than one of their looks.
The Great Kate is always a source of inspiration. Her simple color scheme of black, gray and white has taken her through decades of pure chicness. Of course, we can't discount a figure that goes in and out at all the right places. Sheer panels look naughtier than they are on the sides.

You cannot underestimate a simple mini with pointed-toe pumps. If you don't have one, get one asap. And feel free to style it just as Kate has here. She's not the only model whose used a belt low on the hips to create a sexy focal point that emphasizes the female form.

Kate Bosworth shows us here that a LBD doesn't have to be short and ultra tight to be little. This form-fitting number has a demure cut and length, but with sheer accents it's no less sexy than the littlest black dress you can find.
This dress is classy because it doesn't show an inch of skin it doesn't have to, but looks sophisticated and sexy because of its fit and material. Crocodiles are cunning predators, and any woman who gets her hands on this no doubt has a few tricks up her sleeves too.
Emma knows how to toe the line between sweet, age appropriate, and coy. This look does it beautifully. Pair a simple white tee with any one of your strapless fit-and-flare cocktail numbers. Adorable and flirtatious.

Selena, my you're growing up fast! Like so many pop teens before her, Selena's going seductive and sexy to shed that kiddie image. She did it with this LBD, for sure. Can't go wrong with lace accents.

Again with the sheer sides and cut-outs. You'd think it would get old, but designers certainly know how to make the trend their own. An otherwise sweet dress becomes suggestive and sensual.
This is just perfection from beginning to end. This Chanel couture dress is as delicately feminine as it is risque.

The tuxedo jacket over the LBD is a rather new development that we fully approve of. Love the leopard sheer inset, too.

Had to slip this in here. Here's ScarJo again, this time on the set of a Martin Scorsese film. Another day, another LBD. Life could be worse.
Sandra (or her stylist) was obsessed with cool, slightly edgy looks on her most recent promotional tour. The laser cut-outs on this dress are provocative without being overkill.
