Black doesn’t fit for everybody, this is a great myth. Only Winter seasonal color women can wear it without looking washed out and maybe Clear Springs (Spring-Winter).
So if you have a Spring, Summer or Autumn seasonal palette you shouldn’t wear black close to your face -you can wear it as accessories or skirts/pants.
Although many #celebrity wear black dresses I suggest don’t follow them. If you are a Summer seasonal color women you can replace black with pretty dark grey, if you are a Spring women you should choose the awesome midnight blue shade and if you are an Autumn women you can also wear midnight blue or dark chocolate brown instead of black.
First, here are my top five.
As I mentioned in my last post, I think Barbara Palvin is a Cool Summer (Summer-Winter) but this low neckline detailed and sheer dress looks great on her.
Blake Lively is a Light Spring (Spring-Summer) so she shouldn’t wear black but in this black and white Gucci gown she was flawless. This #outfit was one of my ultimate favourite -so elegant, so classic, so breathtaking 🙂
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a Soft Autumn (Autumn-Summer) but I am not 100% sure. So she should also choose another color but this dress also had a big décolletage so black isn’t too close to her face.
I think Paz Vega and Dita Von Teese are both Winters.

Lovely Jennifer Lawrence is a Clear Spring (Spring-Winter). Sophia Lauren is an Autumn and I think Cheryl Cole also. Ex-first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy seems to be a Summer but they both looked awesome.

I think the following celebrities are Winters so they can easily wear black and monochrome dresses. I loved all their look.
