Oh, the good old little black dress — a no-fail wardrobe staple that you can always turn to when you're not quite sure what to wear. Have a birthday party you're attending? Go with the classic LBD that's hanging in your closet and dress it up with some glitzy jewels and a smoky eye. Take that same frock out on a busy, errand-filled Sunday by styling it with sneakers, a fanny pack, and a swipe of lip gloss. The ever-versatile nature of a little black dress, like the one Jaime King just wore, is simply undeniable. And if you don't yet own one, the actor's perfect take is going to have you running to scoop one up ASAP.
There certainly hasn't been any shortage of outfit inspiration this week, and that all thanks to the gatherings that have cropped up on the calendar. There were the 2019 Teen Choice Awards, which boasted a colorful red carpet and bold fashion moments that shined. Beautycon L.A. saw some pretty major makeup moments, including Priyanka Chopra's neon-pink eyes. And now, there's the Magic Las Vegas trade show event, which took place from Aug. 12 to Aug. 14, that was a true treasure trove of style genius.
The two-day affair — which showcases the latest in trends and spotlights the most-wanted brands and emerging designers — was attended by a slew of A-listers, including the always-impeccably dressed King. She stunned in a black, floor-length gown by Self-Portrait, complete with an off-the-shoulder neckline, puff sleeves, subtle ruching at the waist, and a gorgeous, lace-y hem.
Considering the dress' standout detailing, it was a smart move to keep the rest of the accessories fairly low-key. King grounded the look with a pair of Dior Mary Jane pumps (an Emma Roberts favorite), large, pale-blue hoops, and a couple of diamond rings.
Her blonde bob was perfectly texturized, with effortless, combed-out waves, while her makeup was all about a powerful red lip and glowing skin.
As you gear up for fall fashion, make sure to incorporate at least one LBD into the mix. King's feels especially great for the chillier season, because of the maxi length and edgy lace accent.
