The little black dress, affectionately called the LBD, is the one item that you can rely on when you have a prior engagement or just don’t know what to wear. 

And we’ve all been there with piles of clothing resting at our feet! The LBD is a must-have for any season because it never goes out of style and we can trust it to diminishing our “problem” areas with ease. 

That’s why when the tough gets going, celebs swear like Holly Robinson-Peete, Mariah Carey, and many others pair their LBDs with skyscraper Louboutin heels, blinging accessories, and flawless makeup as they gracefully step up for their photo ops. 

Here are today’s sexy ladies in their favorite LBDs without a style care in the world!
