Berlin Film Festival: Diane Kruger In Elie Saab


Who: Diane Kruger

Where: Attending the ‘The Better Angels’ premiere at the 64th Berlin International Film Festival

Wearing: A white long-sleeve crew-neck Elie Saab gown, featuring a sheer skirt and teamed with a skinny leather belt all from the pre-autumn/winter 2014 collection

Verdict: Normally when writing about Diane Kruger’s red carpet looks I am writing about her effortless styling, the bold prints, or the show-stopping factor of her edgy choice, well a first for me I am gushing over how much I love her minimalist look in this gorgeous Elie Saab gown.

Not only is this look not the norm for Diane it has to be said that this isn’t the usual Elie Saab gown that you see on the red carpet, usually it is embroidered with sparkles, but I love this change of pace with a gown that is both ethereal and sexy, plus it shows that white can be worn on the red carpet without it looking too bridal.

Iif it wasn’t for the long-sleeves I am not sure this look would have had as much impact with me but I love how covering up the top half of the gown balances out the sheer panels of the skirt.

As well as loving the gown, I have to say I love her vibrant red lippy and her hair sweeped to the side – simply chic – I love it!!!

What are your thoughts on Diane’s winter white look?

Berlin Film Festival: Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Haute Couture


Who: Tilda Swinton

Where: At the opening ceremony of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival for her new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wearing: A black wool tuxedo, paired with white silk chiffon ruffles and a white matte silk charmeuse man’s shirt all from the Schiaparelli Haute Couture spring 2014 collection, teamed with a striking gold cocktail ring and the Schiaparelli feathered sandal flip flops as seen on the runway.

Verdict: I love, love, love Tilda Swinton, not only is she a woman who totally knows how to work a suit, but I adore how she really does beat to her own drum by wearing the most amazing and daring fashion on the red carpet.

What I love the most about this look is how she really compliments the mannish tailoring with her slouchy posture and those regal ruffles on the blouse – it makes it chic, sophisticated, and edgy all at the same time – everything you expect from Tilda.

As well as being a fan of her masculine red carpet look, I love how she softens the impact with the styling of the striking cocktail ring and her fun barrel-curl hair-do and bright red lippy and nails, it really works to tie in the whole look.

The only thing I am not so sure about has to be those feathered flip-flops, I get that they were part of the runway look, but other than the fact her feet must have been freezing – it is winter in Berlin, the quirky footwear doesn’t add anything to this look for me. But on the other-hand I so appreciate that they are so Tilda, come on only she could pull of these sandals.

What are your thoughts on this quirky and daring red carpet look?
