On September 20th, Swarovski is fighting cancer – one custom couture dress at a time. Teaming up with 22 high-end designers, including Givenchy, Catherine Malandrino, and Fendi, Swarovski will auction off each black dress (like the ones pictured above by Alexis Mabille and Valentino, respectively) with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Contre le cancer in France. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
And just in case you don’t have an extra $7,000 lying around, check out these better-than-basic little black dresses:
A long sleeved mini dress is a great staple for fall and winter. This Veronica M Sequin Waves Dress ($98) has the right amount of sequins to attract just enough attention.
If you’re more into the classic LBD, then look no further than this Theory Neptune Stretch Jersey Dress ($325). With a long necklace and platforms, you can go anywhere.
This Riller & Fount Siren Open Back Dress ($168) is a total show-stopper. The super-flattering ruching will define your hourglass shape (or enhance what you already have).
