Who: Diane Kruger
Where: At the Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2014 in West Hollywood, California
Wearing: A sheer lace Valentino Couture gown featuring cape detailing and three-quarter sleeves from the spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with black heels, a black beaded clutch and her Jaeger-LeCoultre watch
Verdict: It is Diane Kruger’s ability to bring something different to the red carpet that I missed her from the main event. The actress is like a chameleon she never really goes for the same thing twice and really takes fashion risks that nearly always come off.
This gorgeous Valentino Couture was a look that wowed me and really shows that the Vanity Fair party does bring out the best fashion on the night, the stars can be a little more edgy and sexy and this dress has that and more going for it.
There aren’t many actresses that could pull off this vampy elegant look, I think this is where her model body really works well as she can take something from the runway to the red carpet with ease. I know some people won’t like this look, which makes me go why the hell not, because I absolutely love the decadence and texture of the gown and styling.
As well as wearing a fab dress, the actress went for an intricate braided look done by hairstylist Kylee Heath using Morroccanoil products, which was easily one of the best hairdo’s of the night. It is sweet, charming, while still complimenting the edgy, sexy sheer dress.
I know I am bias, I am a little obsessed with Diane Kruger, but this is one flawless look.

Who: Diane Kruger
Where: At the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner celebrating its 180th anniversary at Teatro La Fenice during the 70th Venice Film Festival
Wearing: A purple, three quarter sleeved Alberta Ferretti crushed velvet gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with a box clutch, H. Stern diamond drop earrings, a cocktail ring, and a Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Etrier watch
Verdict: There is something about velvet, I think that Diane Kruger’s latest red carpet look will split opinions, for some velvet is a little old-fashioned and conservative, however for me I love the luxe feel of the textured fabric and Diane looks uber-glamorous in this gorgeous-yet-simple Alberta Ferretti gown.
I think if this dress had been in a deep red or black I wouldn’t have like it as much – I just think the purple seems more modern and I love that she matched her plum manicure to the dress.
As well as loving the dress, I also adored Diane’s jewellery – from her elegant Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to her statement cocktail ring, and those gorgeous diamond star-shaped drop earrings – each piece is exquisite.

Who: Diane Kruger
Where: At the launch of her short film, Reinvent Yourself with Jaeger-LeCoultre in New York
Wearing: A black fitted Alessandra Rich crepe gown with dramatic fringe detailing to the side, teamed with a skinny white belt, white Christian Louboutin heels, a checked clutch, chunky bracelets and of course a dainty Jaeger-LeCoultre watch
Verdict: Only Diane could get away with wearing this fringed beauty during the day and what a beauty it is, I love how she has styled it with white accessories making it so on trend, as monochrome styles are everywhere.
What I love most about this look has to be how immaculate she looks – her body looks incredible in the fitted dress, her belt shows off her tiny waist, and her natural, barely there make-up and sleek hair is just the topping on the cake really. I know that I gush a lot about Diane, but come on this is why, she is stunning.
So why was Diane sporting a gorgeous fringed dress during the day in New York? I would like to answer that why not, but actually the actress was launching the new short film she stars in for Jaeger-LeCoultre called ‘Reinvent Yourself’.
The beautiful film, directed by Fabienne Berthaud and set to the Shirley Bassey ‘(Where Do I Begin) Love Story’ song, basically pays tribute to the her unique personality and successful career – following her from a young ballerina to a successful fashion model and now an actress.
Watch the film below – it really captures Diane’s beauty perfectly, and she even cries pretty!!!
