The little black dress. It's something almost every woman has in her closet. It can be worn to work, to a funeral or to a formal ball.
And it's something Vogue contributing editor and Savannah College of Art and Design trustee Andrè Leon Talley has turned into an art show.
Talley has curated an exhibit aptly named "Little Black Dress," focusing on the dress in the 20th and 21st centuries.
"Little Black Dress" features about 80 garments, including the work of fashion designers
Marc Jacobs, Miuccia Prada, Tom Ford, Prabal Gurung, Nile Cmylo, Stella McCartney, Chanel, L'Wren Scott, Givenchy, Cushnie et Ochs, Yves Saint Laurent and Isabel Toledo. Some of those dresses have been worn by Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mariah Carey and Rihanna.
The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 27 at the SCAD Museum of Art. After that, it will be shown in select cities worldwide.
