You might want to sit down for this. It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for since series one of Sex and the City.

Sarah Jessica Parker is launching a dress collection – and it’s dedicated entirely to the little black dress. 

While SJP already has a successful shoe line that pays homage to her on-screen character, Carrie Bradshaw, as well as two fragrances, a fashion collection is a first for the star.

The LBD is the ultimate fashion staple- ideal for those last-minute work events, engagement parties or any event that basically doesn’t involve wearing jeans and a t-shirt. Worn most iconically by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, countless women have some form of LBD in their wardrobe.

The actor announced the news via an Instagram video in which she is spinning around a revolving door and twirling. The caption announces the launch of “a new collection of Little Black Dresses designed by me, all made proudly in the USA. Our first silhouette (a surprise!) will launch this October exclusively @bloomingdales, with more designs to follow soon thereafter. Including this one, which I've been practically living in.”

While rather a more demure collection than we’d expect from SJP, whose sartorial prowess is known for its outlandishness, we have a feeling this collection is going to be a hit.

SJP’s new HBO show, Divorce, debuts next month – so perhaps it’s fitting.
