Translation: A little black dress
with a deliciously modern twist—like an off-the-shoulder neckline, shorter
length. "I can take classic black from day to night," says New York publicist
Desiree Gruber. Of her husband, actor Kyle MacLachlan she says, "He likes sexy—I
like a little black dress, he likes the littler black dress."
black reads as more formal than navy or camel, it's the best base if you're
coming from work.
AKA: "Fun cocktail attire," "simply fabulous,"
"gorgeous garb," "dress to kill."
