Who Wore Chanel Better? Diane Kruger or Shantel VanSanten

It’s not easy following in Diane Kruger’s footsteps, but actress Shantel VanSanten was brave enough to when she walked the red carpet at “The Final Destination” LA premiere last week.

Shantel wore the same – but shortened – Chanel dress which Diane had worn the previous week when promoting “Inglourious Basterds” on “The Late Show With David Letterman”.

The black dress with the black sheer yoke and sleeves is embellished with ivory pearls plus gold paillettes decorated the shoulders.

Diane opted to wear her dress with pointy pumps, whereas Shantel opted for Nicholas Kirkwood pearl detail sandals.

Last week I loved Shantel’s shorter version and immediately wondered why Diane – who loves a short hemline – didn’t opt for the shorter version, but I guess that was because she making a TV appearance and not walking the red carpet.

Now seeing them side by side I appreciated the sophistication of the longer version more so Diane wins for me.

    I think both look amazing, but I like it on Shantel better. The dress is sophisticated she shortened it to make it more youthful. Her sassy shoes completed her outfit.

    I voted for Shantel… I really dislike Diane’s shoes… She looks older!!

    I agree about the sophistication of the longer dress, Dianne just looks like she’s all class, which I think is the point of the dress

      I agree. Shortening seemed like a great idea at first, but it failed against the longer version

    I don’t think that Diane necessarily looks older in her version. But I’m thinking that she does look much classier and refined.
