Apple Martin Just Wore an Updated Version of the Classic LBD

A handful of wardrobe staples never go out of style, but our favorite is definitely the little black dress. Recently, 19-year-old Apple Martin demonstrated how this iconic wardrobe workhorse can look fresh and modern while being the perfect thing to wear for almost any occasion. 

Martin joined her mother, Gwyneth Paltrow, to celebrate Goop's new beauty launch and Gucci's gorgeous summer collection at her grandmother's Amagansett home on Long Island, New York. Fashionable guests filled the lush green gardens wearing an array of summer soirée-worthy attire. But it was Martin who captured our attention with her sleek, simple strapless G.Label by Goop minidress, hoop earrings, and a Barbie-pink Gucci shoulder bag. When it comes to exquisite style, the "apple" doesn't fall far from the tree. 

Not sure what to wear to your next big event? Whether it's a special celebration with loved ones or something slightly more formal, Martin's 2023 interpretation of the little black dress is an easy and elegant option to have on hand. Ahead, shop nine versions of the updated little black dress, with a few variations mixed in. The accessories are entirely up to you.
