There was a time in history when it was standard to get dressed for dinner. As day faded into night, dresses would be pulled from their closets, ready to sparkle in the dinner table’s candlelight.

Though the daily ritual of changing for dinner and making it an affair of its own has long since passed, there are still those special occasions that call for black-tie attire. For a woman, that often means the fanciest of dresses. However, Ralph Lauren reimagined “the elegance of black-tie dressing as a powerful expression of modern femininity” in his Fall 2019 collection. Though dresses remained an option, suits were at the forefront.

For the modern woman ready to exhibit her beauty and strength without the confines of expectations or stereotypes, Ralph offered a range of black-tie ready options. Set in Ralph’s Club, the locale was transformed into an old Hollywood supper club with jet black decor, dazzling accents and tinkling jazz music.
