10 Gorgeous LBDs Under Rs 1,000 (Yes, We’re Serious!)

While the LBD fever started decades ago, the outfit has now become a wardrobe staple, courtesy Gabrielle Chanel. In the ’50s, it was worn by Hollywood femme fatales inspired by Dior’s ‘New Look’  that associated black with mystery and danger. The LBD, however, got immensely popular after Audrey Hepburn’s cult film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which featured a black sheath dress by Givenchy.

A must-have piece in every girl’s closet, it can instantly spruce up your look. But you don’t need to go the Chanel or Dior way to get yourself a glamorous LBD. We list 10 gorgeous LBDs that will not cost you more than Rs 1,000.
