Who: Diane Kruger
Where: At the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California
Wearing: A silver Emilia Wickstead tailored gown with sweeping train, teamed with an Emm Kuo clutch and Kwiat jewellery
Verdict: Diane Kruger has a great sense of style and I have to own up to having a total girl crush on her, so, of course, I was blown away by this gorgeous, elegant look, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off how it was tailored to perfection, the shimmer-effect fabric literally followed the contours of her incredible figure.
I love it when British designers get recognition on the red carpet and this no doubt will help put Emilia Wickstead on the map in Hollywood, but I wonder if it wasn’t for the fact Diane is a style icon on the red carpet would this gown be getting as much attention? I think it would have been liked but wouldn’t have wowed in quite the same way.
There is something about how Diane puts looks together, with the styling of the mother-of-pearl clutch, the statement pieces of jewellery and Old Hollywood waves that really pulls this look together to make it a knockout.
When there are so many gowns adorned with embellishments or featuring sexy cut-outs I find it refreshing that a minimal gown like this can bring its own sex appeal to the party with the help of a blonde bombshell like Diane Kruger and some exquisite tailoring.
