    The Bourne Dara Dress in Black is perfect for ladies who prefer a more covered-up look come Christmas party season. With long sleeves and a slight peplum detail to the waist this LBD is a real figure-flatterer. That doesn't take away from the sexiness of this dress, though, as the sultry satin sheen and subtle body-conscious fabric alludes to a svelte and sexy body shape. Team LBD recommend adding a splash of cool colour with bright blue accessories -for our video we used Bourne's Natalia Shoe in Blue, a great way to brighten up any little black dress.

Made by top designers at evening wear specialists Elliot Claire, this gorgeous long dress will make you stand out for all the right reasons. As if the front of this long black dress isn't beautiful enough, the embroidered back detail which reveals just a glimpse of flesh is the icing on this perfectly decorated cake.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
