Chloe Fox
Authors:
Chloe Fox

Ninety years after Vogue dubbed Coco Chanel's simple short black 'Ford' dress 'the frock that all the world will wear', the perfect Little Black Dress continues to be every woman's most sought after fashion essential. At its classic best, the LBD doesn't just make its wearer look beautiful and stylish; it empowers her too. Dress it up, pare it down, wear it forever - the Little Black Dress is a fashion essential. From the bold, dramatic designs of Zandra Rhodes to the eye-catching LBDs by Vivienne Westwood, from Elizabeth Hurley's iconic safety pin Versace number to the tight off-the-shoulder Christina Stambolian dress worn by Princess Diana, Vogue Essentials: Little Black Dress celebrates the very best of the LBD.'One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress'Karl Lagerfeld

Vogue Essentials: Handbags

Carolyn Asome
Authors:
Carolyn Asome

Since its inception more than a century ago, Vogue has been fascinated by the infinite incarnations of the handbag. From the myriad surrealist creations of Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel to Prada's democratic nylon backpack, from the exclusive Hermés Birkin bag to individual vintage gems, the handbag is fashion's most inventive accessory. No shock, then, that the handbag market today is worth more than a hundred billion dollars. From each season's must-have to five-figure rarities, the handbag symbolizes the inexplicable power of fashion desire. Vogue Essentials: Handbags explores all the greatest hits in a collection that any fashion devotee will covet.'Any woman can wear shoes and handbags: it's not a question of how tall you are, how skinny you are, how blonde or blue-eyed or tanned or whatever.' Marc Jacobs
