The Little Black Dress Turns 86: The Best Throughout History

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld once said, "one is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a little black dress."

In honor of the 86th anniversary of the little black dress, we've rounded up the biggest LBD highlights throughout history. Let us know which one is your favorite.
