Vogue World 2024 went off with a bang yesterday, with plenty of standout fashion and beauty moments to admire. But there is one outfit we really can't stop thinking about - Eva Longoria's stunning black maxi dress.

Hosted in Paris, this year's Vogue World was a true celebration of all things fashion with A-listers including Naomi Campbell and Serena Williams in attendance. There's no greater place to see the 2024 spring/summer fashion trends in action, so we're taking plenty of style tips from the guests.

Although there were countless attention-grabbing looks at play, Eva Longoria's timelessly sophisticated dress goes to show how breathtaking even minimalist looks can be. A perfect choice for the occasion, the actress wore a beautiful Alexandre Vauthier gown in a figure-hugging cut with glittering, embellished straps to add a sparkly edge.

If you're just as inspired by Eva's look as we are, there are plenty of similar silhouettes on the market. Endlessly versatile for year-round wear, each of these pieces will be a centrepiece of your capsule wardrobe.

The 2024 Vogue World show was designed to be a look back on the last century of French fashion, so it's only natural to opt for a timelessly chic gown. Eva chose to keep things very toned down on the accessories front, which couldn't have been a better fit for her ensemble.

A dress this good needs to be the focal point of the look, and any statement jewellery or a bold handbag could have detracted from the incredible silhouette and luxurious embellishments.

The beauty of an understated black dress is that it works just as well in a summer capsule wardrobe as it will layered up in the autumn, so it's an investment you can reply on. After seeing how good it looks on Eva, we're convinced we need a similarly versatile piece in our arsenal.
