Every fashion-savvy diva knows that the little black dress is not only the center of her wardrobe, but her best friend and secret weapon! See the LBD come to life in Savannah College of Art and Design and MAC Cosmetics exhibition, “Little Black Dress,” now open to the public at the Mona Bismarck Center for Art & Culture in Paris, France. This collection of approximately 50 extravagant dresses includes designs by Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Tom Ford, Oscar de la Renta, and many more, as well as pieces previously worn by style icons such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Sex and the City’s Sarah Jessica Parker.

The exhibition is curated by Numéro Russia editor at large and Vogue contributing editor André Léon Talley, who also serves as a mentor at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Talley’s gallery dedicated to couture at the college’s art museum is the only one of its kind in the southern United States.

This is the first time Little Black Dress appears in France, and its trip to the world’s fashion capital is an absolute don’t-miss!
