The LBD for NYE!
Sometimes there really is no choice but to go for the LBD. It’s your best friend, always there for you in your hour of need.
Dressed up or down, sparkly or plain, fitted or flowing – it’s tried and tested……it’s our secret weapon!
Personally what I find so appealing is that you can just see how your mood takes you on the night.
I will have a choice of three numbers lined up for the celebrations night. Possibly one very fitted number (but that will all depend on my tummy size!) One short(ish) number to wear with opaques if I’m feeling cold and last and by no means least a sparkly one if I’m going to party and not too exhausted from the Christmas festivities by then!
There is no denying that we all like to look svelte and black always does the trick. Celebs everywhere all favour black, particularly on the red carpet: Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie, Charlie Theron to name a few.
I would recommend wearing glossy expensive tights with your LBD either the natural golden tones or nearly black giving a glossy polished finish to your look.
Keep you accessories to a minimum – unless of course it is a rather plain dress and you want to make a statement but don’t forget Coco Chanel’s advice ”When putting on accessories, take off the last thing you’ve put on”
Add a little sparkle either in your hairspray or eye shadow gives you that little extra special celebratory vibe.
And ladies if you can take the pain theirs is nothing like the stiletto court to elongate your legs!
But always remember "Elegance is the only beauty that never fades." As Audrey Hepburn once said.
So go out holding your head high and feeling beautiful but most of all enjoy yourself!!.................... After all a happy person is a beautiful one!
