Vanessa Paradis joined Diane Kruger on the red carpet at the Sidaction Gala dinner in Paris, France yesterday evening.

She was of course wearing a Chanel look.

This fully embellished Chanel Fall 2011 Couture tea-length dress was paired with mumsy plain pumps but the sexy open-back counteracts that.

The French actress is one of the few stars who can, and often does, hit the red carpet without much makeup, but on this occasion she was smouldering with smoky eyes and a shimmering copper lip colour.

A gold necklace, a red quilted Chanel clutch and a cocktail ring completed her look.
