Black never goes out of style, but this week a few stars showed us why we still love to love fashion’s favorite shade.

IT’S THE ULTIMATE FASHION STATEMENT

The LBD never gets old as Angelina Jolie continues to prove time and time again. At the “Maleficent” premiere in Japan on Monday, she stunned in a gorgeous ebony strapless velvet number by Atelier Versace that hugged every curve to perfection.

LOOKS GREAT ON BLONDES… & COUPLES

Jennifer Aniston’s famous mane looked even shiner and brighter popping against the black shirtdress she wore to the premiere of fiancé Justin Theroux’s “The Leftovers” in New York. They make one dapper couple. Black also shows off Jen’s signature tan!

IT HELPS YOU LOOK SLENDER

Kim Kardashian’s all-black ensemble has a super slimming effect. The fitted moto jacket, slightly longer sheer tee and skinny jeans are flattering for her shape and her nude heels elongate her legs and make her look super-model tall. When you’ve indulged a little too much, black is a savior in that it helps camouflage any trouble areas.

BLACK IS CLASSIC

No need for lots of style bells and whistles when you go with black. Jennifer Garner’s jumpsuit is simple, but the epitome of chic. She keeps everything from her jewelry to hair and makeup understated and that’s the great thing about black, it does all the work for you, so it doesn’t take much to look fabulous.

BLACK IS EDGY TOO

Demi Lovato’s black dress is on-trend with its different textures and sheer panels that show just enough skin without revealing too much. Goes perfectly with her purple ombre hair, matching nails and funky jewelry for a youthful, fun look.
