Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Why did many actresses wear black dresses to the 75th Golden Globe Awards ceremony in 2018?

Answer: In protest against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry

The 75th Golden Globes ceremony took place seven days after the founding of the Time's Up Movement on January 1, 2018. The movement formed part of a wider campaign against the sexual harassment and assault of women in the movie industry at the hands of some of its most powerful male figures.

Famous faces who turned up on the red carpet wearing a range of glamorous, but black, dresses included Dakota Johnson in a Gucci design, Nicole Kidman wearing Givenchy and Angelina Jolie in an Atelier Versace designed gown.

2. What did the Press dub the stunning black dress worn to a 'Vanity Fair' function by Princess Diana in June 1994, on the night Prince Charles' tell-all interview appeared on television?

Answer: The Revenge Dress

When Princess Diana stepped out of the car as an official guest at the Vanity Fair party, photographers had a field day. She was clad in a form-hugging, off the shoulder black silk dress, certainly not the demure look expected of royalty. That same evening, Charles appeared on an internationally televised program, speaking about their failed marriage, and effectively confessing to having been unfaithful.
In fact the controversial dress had been made for Diana by Christina Stambolian three years before, and had not been worn because Diana thought it was too revealing. She had been planning to wear a Valentino dress that night, but protocol was broken and the Press was told ahead of time what she would be wearing, so she made the last minute switch to the Stambolian dress. It certainly caused a stir.

3. In 1926 Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue. It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. What was it dubbed?

Answer: Little Black Dress

The Little Black Dress was credited as one of the liberating factors of the time by freeing women from the constraints of the "corseted silhouette" in the post World War I environment. It created a casual chic as the feminine standard of style in the 1920s and 30s. The Little Black Dress had another surge of popularity in the 1960s and never seems to have faded into the background since.
Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel was born on 19th August in about 1883. She founded the Chanel brand. The brand goes beyond couture clothing to include jewellery, handbags, and fragrances. Coco's signature scent, Chanel No. 5, is an iconic product.

4. Edith Piaf, the French folk icon, performed in a black sheath dress throughout her career: for this habit she was nicknamed what?

Answer: Little Black Sparrow

Despite the rumors that Edith was born in the gutter, she was actually born in a hospital with the name Édith Giovanna Gassion. She came from a family of entertainers. As Edith was only 142 centimetres (4 ft 8 in) tall and she was nicknamed "Piaf" which means little sparrow in French. Edith Piaf learned the basics of stage presence and found audiences would focus more on her singing and less on her appearance if she wore a black dress, which became her trademark apparel. This is why she was called "Little Black Sparrow".

5. If I have a pair of black patent leather shoes, what do I have?

Answer: Leather shoes with a glossy finish

Patent leather, typically used to make formal shoes, have glossy finish to them. Originally the coated finish was made from linseed oil, but today plastic is much more common. Patent leather is known for its glossy sheen and is shinier than simply polished leather. It has a tendency to look rubbery in texture. Patent leather shoes are considered extremely formal nowadays.

6. In an iconic ad, a young model in a long black dress walked on a wet street in New York and stunned (mostly male) spectators. For which perfume was this ad made in 2016?

Answer: "Good Girl" by Caroline Herrera

In the ad we saw Katie Kloss dressed in a long black dress with long sleeves and some sparkly appliques, on black shoes with high heels. Close-ups during the ad revealed that Katie wore no necklace nor eardrops: her only jewelry were two large golden bracelets. Walking very confidently on the street, she made heads turn - leading up to a head-tail collision by a car and a cab. The brand was only revealed at the very end, when she met a desirable man in his hotel room: it was an advertisement for Caroline Herrera's perfume "Good Girl", and the slogan used was "It's Good ... To Be Bad".

7. Natalie Portman's wore a stunning black tutu in which 2010 film, with a storyline based around the ballet production "Swan Lake"?

Answer: Black Swan

"Black Swan" follows Nina (Natalie Portman) as she struggles with her dark side when competing for a part in the New York City Ballet Company's production of "Swan Lake".

The iconic tutu Portman wears in the film was designed by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, although controversy reared its head as the duo were not part of the Costume Designers Guild and therefore were not eligible for an Oscar for their work on the film's costumes. A moot point in the end, as the costume work was not nominated for an award.

8. What kind of attire would be appropriate for a man at a "black tie" event?

Answer: Tuxedo

Black Tie is the second most formal kind of evening dress and the most common style of formal wear. Men wear a dinner jacket or tuxedo in either black, midnight blue or white along with a white dress shirt and the black bow tie giving the style its name. Women wear an evening gown, although typically not a full-length one. That, along with the men's tailcoat, is reserved for the even more formal "white tie" style.

9. To which event did Elizabeth Hurley wear a risque black Versace dress that later came to be known as "THAT Dress"?

Answer: Premiere of "Four Weddings and a Funeral"

Elizabeth Hurley was dating British actor Hugh Grant at the time and accompanied him to the premier of his film "Four Weddings and a Funeral". Designed by Donatella Versace, the dress caused a stir in the media and is often credited with making Liz, then a relatively unknown actress, a recognizable name. With a thigh high slit and a plunging neckline, the black dress was cut-away along the sides of the body as well, held together by large gold safety pins - and a lot of willpower! Such is the enduring popularity of the dress, that it even has its own Wikipedia page.

10. Audrey Hepburn wore a famous "little black dress" designed by Hubert de Givenchy in which 1961 film in which she plays Holly Golightly, an eccentric socialite in New York?

Answer: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Audrey Hepburn and the French designer Hubert de Givenchy first met when she was looking for clothes to wear in her 1954 film "Sabrina", including a beautiful white embroidered dress that she wore in one of her scenes with William Holden. It was the beginning of a friendship that would span more than 25 years. The long, sleeveless black sheath dress he designed for her opening scene in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is considered one of Hollywood's iconic dresses. Paramount, which produced the film, thought the dress showed "too much leg" and had the lower half of the dress redesigned by Edith Head.
