Looks like LBDs have the summer off, as scores of actresses and socials alike have eschewed Holly Golightly’s iconic staple in favor of a lighter version. The LWD — little white dress — has been seen in the front row of the Christian Dior couture show in Paris (on Blake Lively), the German premiere of “Knight and Day” in Munich (Cameron Diaz), the “Mad Men” season premiere in New York (January Jones) and a fete for “Twilight: Eclipse” also in New York (an expectant Georgina Chapman). Certainly, the LWD appears to have the same benefits as its raven relative — understated, elegant and easy to accessorize. Just don’t get it anywhere near the rosé.
