Runway To “Inglourious Basterds” London Premiere – Diane Kruger In Balmain

It had quieten down for a while, but it looks like Balamainia is far from over.

Diane Kruger walked the red carpet tonight wearing a strapless sweetheart neckline Balmain Fall 2009 trademark mini dress with a cute ruffled skirt, for the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere in London’s Leicester Square.

It’s been a miserable day in London today with on and off rain, but that didn’t stop the German actress from wearing this short sassy black suede number.

I love the thinner bejeweled belt, the way the dress sits higher on her than the model, and her sexy slick backed hair.

She really got into the spirit of the sexy rock chic glamour which each Christophe Decarnin piece oozes.

Regular readers will also recognise the Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps Diane’s wearing, as I featured them on my blog a week ago.

I wondered who would be the first to wear what could be the new celebrity “IT” shoe.

Your guesses ranged from Rihanna, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce, but Diane trumped them all.

Before you ask she’s definitely up for Best Dressed this week, and Brad and Angelina don’t appear to be at this premiere.

    Amazing. She can make a trash look good. Case in point.

    i remember you saying that rihanna will wear first this Christian Louboutin heels ) . Diane wins because she was well dressed. But the hair was horribleeee if she had done sth at hair she would have been more than wonderful.But, nobody is perfect!

    I think she looks great. I always look forward to an event where Diane is in attendance, as, like Thandie Newton, she never lets us down, even when off-duty or trying something new. I am slightly getting a bit bored of Balmain, but you can’t deny they make the wearer look fabulous, and they’re not nearly as trashy and beloved of B-listers as Herve Leger. Neve Campbell looked great at this premiere too, in a really lovely multicoloured sheer top.

      I agree about Diane & Thandie giving us perfection 99.9999% of the time

    oh no, her hair destroys this look for me, sorry but the slicked back hair doesnt fit her at all, dont know how else to describe it other than it makes her face look weird lol
    love th shoes though.

    it’s not a WOW moment, but it is quite sweet, i wish she had just done her hair differently though..

  7. Tia July 24, 2009 at 00:08 #

    Fab, love the shoes especially.

  8. Alexandra July 24, 2009 at 00:07 #

    Balmain or not, I adore this skirt, it looks like heaven on Diane. And these heels are just perfect… I love them since I saw them recently on your blog. If I only could afford them, they would alreay be mine!

  11. zoe July 23, 2009 at 22:55 #

    diane looks so amazing and that school marm hairstyle is still nowhere to be seen. <3

  12. LL July 23, 2009 at 22:29 #

    great, but the model has better shoes!!

  13. Alicia July 23, 2009 at 22:22 #

    She looks like sexy rock chick Barbie, and in this case, it’s a good thing.

  14. Methedrine July 23, 2009 at 21:57 #

    Its good to see that Diane is always there to wow us! She’s stunning!

  15. Sally July 23, 2009 at 21:32 #

    No, no, no, no.
    I’ve been dying for some Diane for weeks now and she turns up in Balmain?
    I really thought Diane was above this.
    Balmain is such an easy option, it’s the new Herve Leger.
    So disappointed.

  16. boogie July 23, 2009 at 21:27 #

    she looks amazing!!!

  17. T July 23, 2009 at 21:25 #

    I always find Blamain either boring or tacky, so I am totally immune to this look. I have high hopes for Diane usually, but she has been disappointing me lately.

  18. Candy Factory July 23, 2009 at 21:24 #

    I love Diane and i love her in the shoes!

    Btw, I love your website, it’s perfect! xx

    • Fashion Critic July 23, 2009 at 22:07 #

      thanks Candy x

  19. Tania July 23, 2009 at 21:23 #

    Diane, gets my vote for best dress just because of the shoes. I need to own them.

  20. LolaSvelt July 23, 2009 at 21:18 #

    I don’t live too far from central London, was the weather really that miserable? Where I live, the weather was quite good!

    Anyway, I find this look boring for Diane Kruger. She could do so much better. Maybe I am just bored of seeing this collection on the red carpet all the time.

    • Fashion Critic July 23, 2009 at 22:08 #

      We had torrential rain at one point.

  21. Gaber July 23, 2009 at 20:46 #

    I, on the other hand, LOVE how the dress sits lower on the model. It most definitely adds to it’s appeal.
    I am guessing the problem is Diane’s height, so that this was the only way that she could pull it off.

    • Justme July 23, 2009 at 22:14 #

      ITA, the dress looks better on the model. The ruffles seem to be bigger on the model, they stand out more.
      I’m also not sure those Louboutins go with that dress.

  22. Camilla July 23, 2009 at 20:36 #

    She’s standing in a really odd way that makes the dress look funny. I’m sure it’s lovely from a better angle, but I don’t like the shoes with the dress as the details are too small and the outfit needed something more dynamic, perhaps.

    • LolaSvelt July 23, 2009 at 21:20 #

      That’s the Diane poses. I personally love her pose. I love it when celebrities pose in their own way and not with their hand on their hip.

  23. robbie July 23, 2009 at 19:41 #

    HELL YEAH!!!!! i am glad someone with class wore those shoes first. dress is gorgeous and her hair is pretty nice.
