WHY: Let me start off by saying that I don't usually like these kind of straps on gowns. It is Elie Saab though, and it is the gorgeous Diane Kruger who is wearing the gown, so the chance of the two coming together and ever going wrong is close to zilch! The tulle and subtle sequins on the dress (catch a close-up here) are simply breathtaking, and she lets her dress stand out with barely-there makeup and accessories. When I first saw Elie Saab's couture line for fall, I did think the colors would make a lot of people look washed-out, but Diane is beautiful, despite sticking to the same color palette for the rest of her look. I don't know how she does it!
Apart from the dress, my other favorite part about her look is her slightly messy and wavy hair. I'm so glad that she didn't go for an updo. Her long, flowing tresses make her look absolutely divine.
Do you like her here or do you prefer her in a more glamorous avatar like this one? Would love to hear what you think!
