Black magic women

More little black dresses will be bought over the next few weeks than at any other time of the year. We've decided to take a look at some of the drop-dead gorgeous LBDs which have been worn by some of our favourite celebrities throughout the year.

If you need even more ideas on styles and what's on trend for this coming party season, we have a list of shops where you're guaranteed to find a dazzling black dress to make you a party queen.

Disney star Demi Lovato had the wow factor in this knock-out LBD at the HTC Status Social launch event at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. The actress and singer had taken a little time off from her entertainment career, yet this year released her comeback single Skyscraper.

Jennifer Aniston is rocking her 40s! The 42-year-old actress stole the show in a thigh-skimming black leather dress by Celine at the London press conference for her comedy, Horrible Bosses.

Nicole Richie's asymetrical hemline looked great matched with leopard-print boots at the QVC Shoes On Sale event at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. The 30-year-old fashionista attended the event to shop for designer shoes in aid of breast cancer research.

Rose Byrne took a risk by arriving at Chanel's Tribeca Film Festival party in a LBD featuring embroidery and embellishment from none other than the A-lister's first call for eveningwear -- Chanel. The Bridesmaids' star looks fabulous.

Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr donned a knockout little black dress for a Super Star launch in Seoul, South Korea.

Her impeccable fashion taste and her picture-perfect post-baby body were undisputable in this figure- hugging Roland Mouret cocktail dress.
