Recessionista: Back in Black


Everyone was laughing this week at the parade of leather dresses on the red carpet Well, hello! It's a trend. But it's also a fall trend and celebrities must be the first to break that news or they will be seen wearing clothes that someone's worn before or something dated.

The prices of Angelina Jolie's Michael Kors dress and the Rag & Bone on Rihanna are waaaaay out of most price ranges but lo and behold, here comes Forever 21 with their version of what you would probably want anyway — a faux leather strapless little black dress. It zips up the back, come only in black and is sized S-M-L. $24.80 to boot.

Check out Angelina Jolie in leather!
