The French Vogue Tenue de Soirée shoot showcases the pureness and flexibility of a simple black dress. By using black and white photography, Claudia Knoepfel and Stefan Indlekofer created a classic 60s feeling for the editorial that emphasizes the elegance of this closet staple.

In 1926, Vogue first introduced the LBD with a simple, long-sleeved design by Coco Chanel, which changed the fashion world’s view on black dresses entirely. Prior to that moment, black was only worn to funerals or during mourning. It took until 1961, when Audrey Hepburn started the true LBD craze as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, for the little black dress to get all the credit it deserves.
