Versatile, dependable and affordable, the Little Black Dress, or "LBD," has become the fashion equivalent of a Model T Ford. Historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., explores the history of this fashion icon. Learn how Chanel helped dissociate black from mourning, how Audrey Hepburn helped establish the LBD and how it has been reinvented by everyone from Betty Boop to Prada.
