Jessica Alba, Spike TV video game awards, December 2012
Much has been written about the Little Black Dress. A lot of it by me, a person prone to spilling things down my front and a preference for clothes that are trusty and reliable. As we're smack bang in the middle of party season and the canapes are flying thick and fast this is certainly not to be sneezed. But sometimes the LBD just needs a little more, well, oomph. It needs to be sexed up a little or have something about it that is clever and unique. As Jessica Alba demonstrates, it is difficult to go past a leather trim. Alba's LBD goes from nice and all to phoar and all that. Paired with the strappy heels and red pout it's an undone, louche kind of sexiness.
