Also, while it's true that the first thing that comes in mind for the dress is the one worn by Creator/AudreyHepburn in ''Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys'' (as the page image above), [[FandomBerserkButton do]] '''[[FandomBerserkButton NOT]]''' mention it as a Chanel creation made in 1926, like most fashion articles do; it was created by Hubert de Givenchy in 1961.

* Blue/Green (the girl) from ''Manga/PokemonSpecial''.''Manga/PokemonAdventures'' wore one, combined with white gloves, until the ''[=FireRed=] and [=LeafGreen=]'' arcs, when she was given a new outfit to match her game counterpart. She was based on an unused female protagonist for ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'', who ended up being revamped for the remake games. Blue is a bit flirty but is a toned down variant due to her young age.



* Mio from ''Manga/{{K On}}''.
** Which is funny, seeing as in the fandom she's a "[[LauncherOfAThousandShips little black dress]]"...

This dress was created during TheRoaringTwenties, when fashion was in a big upheaval compared with the decades before. Creator/CocoChanel came up with a dress that would work in any evening or formal occasion, and blend in through any decade since. An anecdote on where did Chanel found inspiration on the dress is that while she looking at [[FrenchMaid her maid]], she observed upon the simplicity of the uniform and tweaked it by removing the apron and the lace trimmings, leaving only the black part of the dress.

* ''Film/DearDiary'': Annie uses this exact phrase when seeing a black dress in a fashion store. At the end when her husband gets a look at it, it helps revive their stagnant sex life.
