Of course we all love the official red carpet snaps from award shows, but this year I think all the fun is going to happened on Instagram as this past year actresses and actors really have got on board and embraced the picture sharing site, I am obsessed with following Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson. It was so fun to see A-list celebs sharing all the behind-the-scenes gossip from the Golden Globes – from the make-up chair, inside the limo, on the red carpet, during the award show and of course those boozy after parties. So I thought I would share a few of my favourites so you could add them you following list ahead of the next award show. Are you following your favourite A-listers on Instagram?
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 a 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.
What do you think – were you blown away by Diane Kruger’s look?
I don’t think it is a secret that Diane Kruger is one of my favourite style icons, whether it is red carpet or street style, she always seems to nail it, well the gorgeous actress has joined forces with online boutique MyTheresa to share her style secrets as well as her autumn/winter picks.
Diane is the 7th star of MyTheresa.com women series, following the likes of Alexa Chung, Clémence Poésy, and Atlanta De Cadenet, and the stylish star chats about why she likes to hit the red carpet without the help of a stylist, apparently she started picking her own clothes as she “didn’t want to look like everybody else”, her love of make-up, her friendship with Karl Lagerfeld and why you won’t see her joining Twitter.
The actress also gives clues on to how to dress a la Kruger – it is all about forgetting men!
“I think most women dress for other women,” she explains in the video. “It’s easy to please a man, the shorter the skirt and the sexier the dress, they will most likely approve of your outfit.”
Check out the actresses full shoot with MyTheresa – it is basically everything you need to emulate her style. I think first on my wishlist has to be that Valentino embroidered cape and monochrome Stella McCartney jumper dress – tres chic!!!

Who: Diane Kruger
Where: At the 4th annual Critics’ Choice Television Awards in California
Wearing: A floral print silk chiffon strapless Elie Saab gown, embroidered with sequins and featuring a structured bodice from the Haute Couture spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with a gold clutch
Verdict: Dark and romantic all at the same time, I love this cinched-in floral Elie Saab dress, it really does exude drama and elegance and is perfect for an award ceremony.
What I love about this look on Diane are the dramatic lines of the silhouette, from the structured straight-across neckline, to the pleated skirt, and the exaggerated hip detail that really does make Diane’s tiny waist look even tinier.
I am not sure many people could have pulled off this silhouette, but Diane really does look gorgeous, and I love that once again she pulled off a fashion risk.
