We all have one or two or twenty in our closets. (if you don't, we're no longer friends)
It's hard to fuck up a black dress but I've seen it happen a few times.
Take for instance the amfAR event in Milan Italy today during Milan Fashion Week.
We have examples of how to do it and how not to do it.
Here we have (ridiculously) gorgeous yet a little trashy Nina Senicar in a low back/high-neck variation:
I guess after modeling glittery monokinis and other bad swimwear, girl needs to wash up a bit.
This variation in a black dress is probably the best, ever. Très sexy.
Then we have how not to wear a black dress, courtesy of Sharon Stone:
Pictured here with Roberto Cavalli (they share the same love of tacky blacky and cosmetic surgery) in what would be a fashion 'Do' if she weren't spilling out of it.
You see, that's the thing about the black dress; you don't need to show too much tit - you're already sexy enough just showing up in a black dress.
Poor thing. After 100 years in the red carpet business, this is still a mystery to her.
Her face (54 yrs old) is holding up well though, non? I've always loved her brows - they're very underrated.
I'm sure she's had a ton of 'work' but she's not too plasticy yet.
