We know that leather is officially back for fall 2012, but wow, it’s really come back in a major, major way.

The black leather dress is turning out to be one of, if not, THE hottest dress trend of the season. Thanks mostly in part to these Hollywood celebrities who were spotted in the LBLD (Little Black Leather Dress) one after the other!

The statuesque Iman might’ve started it all when she got everyone’s attention in this bondage-inspired black leather dress she wore to the launch party of her Destination IMAN website. Iman not only proved that she’s still got it but also that age is nothing but a number:

Up next, Kardashian sisters Kim and Khloe were seen lounging in leather. Both Kim and Khloe prefer their LBLDs with leather bodices and flowing skirts:

Kristin Cavallari, who just gave birth, and Malin Akerman, who just recently announced she’s pregnant, both chose black leather dresses for their most recent red carpet appearances. Kristin chose a leather-paneled body-con dress while Malin went for full leather:
