Diane Kruger In Jason Wu – Haiti Carnival Benefit

Diane Kruger attended the Haiti Carnival benefit for the J/P HRO, Artists For Peace and Justice & Happy Hearts Fund hosted by Armani this evening during Cannes Film Festival.

The German actress gives us our first look at the Jason Wu Resort 2013 collection, which is yet to be presented.

It’s not unusual for the Diane to have first dibs on any Jason Wu collection, but this is fast even by her standards.

Her navy asymmetrical draped chiffon gown with an embroidered Chantilly lace tromp l’oeil slip underlay and an embellished collar was teamed with simple black sandals.

The rest of her accessories included diamond encrusted earrings and a black diamante Judith Leiber embellished clutch.

Diane completed her look with slick back hair and flawless makeup.

One of the best of today? Or have you seen better?

    I think this is great, but not the best of today nor BDOTW or BDOTY.

    This is gorgeous for Krugelz (my nickname for her) but with this busy day and week not a showstoppher.

      +1, she still looks marvelous but I am just a little underwhelmed, considering what she gave us in the last few days!

    If I could have anyone’s closet / fashion connections (and innate understanding of fashion and style), it would be hers. She is a beautiful woman.

    • Jones19 May 19, 2012 at 01:25 #

      Beautifully put. I feel the same way. I just can’t get over how flawless her makeup looks here.

  3. Yeliz May 18, 2012 at 22:41 #

    One of the best for me. I love everything about this sophisticated look and am thanks to Diane very curious about Jason Wu Resort 2013.

  4. Rita May 18, 2012 at 22:41 #

    LOVE IT. I love Jason Wu and this dress made me so more exited about this collection!

  5. Emily May 18, 2012 at 22:43 #

    She looks beautiful, but it reminds me of Karlie Kloss’ Met Gala dress.

    • Dhppy May 18, 2012 at 23:52 #

      Yes, that’s why I’m surprised this is a first look. I saw it and immediately thought is must be Jason Wu due to Karlie Kloss at the Met Gala.

    • bm May 19, 2012 at 02:18 #

      Yeah, Agree. The difference is only in the color. Karlie’s pink and black, diane’s black and blue.
      So, technically Karlie is the first person to wear Jason Wu resort 2013.

    It didn’t wow me at first sight, but the more I look at it, the more I love it. It engenders a sense of understated elegance. Would you please put it in the poll? :D

  7. Nat39 May 18, 2012 at 22:44 #

    It´s a well done look but I don´t really like it- the collar and asymmetrical draping don´t work together for me.
    On the side note, as the other images show, I think admmgz was right, the red accent on the clutch is once again is just a reflection.

  8. EmmaWoodhouse May 18, 2012 at 22:45 #

    I don’t like the dress at all, but she is gorgeous as always.

  9. noo May 18, 2012 at 22:47 #

    this dress is something that i truly don’t like/get.
    but diane’s hair, make up and accessories are just sensational!

  10. Christine May 18, 2012 at 22:49 #

    Kudos to her getting first dibs!It’s great gown no less but not the best of the bunch.

  11. Brooke May 18, 2012 at 22:52 #

    Glorious. I’d vote this in the daily poll.

  12. Rebecca Z May 18, 2012 at 22:54 #

    I don’t really like this dress, but I have to say she still looks smashing.

  13. hannah May 18, 2012 at 22:55 #

    I adore this dres,s I really do, and her presentation of it is beyond fantastic, but I am reay irritated by how similar, or how much it reminds me of the Erdem dress with the lace & teh sheer overlay & teh slight asymmetry.

  14. fromchi-town May 18, 2012 at 22:58 #

    She looks beautiful. I love the dress… There is an understated elegance. Her make up and hair are perfect. That being said, its not the best of today.

  15. justme May 18, 2012 at 23:02 #

    This is her first Cannes 2012 look I’ve loved from head to toe.
    That is a beautiful dress.

  16. robbie May 18, 2012 at 23:14 #

    from the neck up she looks like a goddess, but that dress looks like something from project runway, the chiffon looks so pointless.

  17. Rashmi May 18, 2012 at 23:15 #

    Is the top half of the dress not lined or my eyes seeing too much!
    Makeup is perfection…

  18. Nicky May 18, 2012 at 23:23 #

    Absolutely stunning from head to toe.

  19. nina May 18, 2012 at 23:23 #

    Love hair and make up, but dress not so much.Still she look good.

  20. Luiza May 18, 2012 at 23:25 #

    I’m not a fan of sheer and lace but her hair and make up are FLAWLESS.

  21. Annel May 18, 2012 at 23:36 #

    Flawless makeup and hair. But the dress seems way to sombre – even for a night outing – at Cannes.

  22. Dhppy May 18, 2012 at 23:58 #

    Just as with Karlie at the Met gala, I don’t quite understand how Wu is getting away with draping a layer of fabric around a lace dress and calling it a completed look, but it still has something going for it. Her styling, however, leaves no questions; it’s flawless.

  23. Mol May 19, 2012 at 00:06 #

    I love Diane in this dress, it’s moody, sexy and prim at the same time, elegant and perfectly presented. I sure hope it makes todays poll….

  24. Tati M May 19, 2012 at 00:41 #

    Diane knows how to carry a clutch correctly. She’s awesome

  25. Ramsay May 19, 2012 at 01:17 #

    Was busy today to comment but as I was going through the various looks we had I have to say what a tremendous day of fashion! So much couture! So much embroidery! This has to be my favorite look probably because it is the most unusual and that make-up is spellbinding – once again I end up voting Diane- she just seem to always hit the right balance of glamour and novelty

  26. pipsqueak May 19, 2012 at 03:09 #

    I really love how clean and simple she looked. This dress is very seductive, though the color combo lacks a “wow” factor. I also like Diane doesn’t smile when posing on the red carpet. The Lea Michele’s big teeth grin is just cheesy. Diane is so elegant.

  27. mandy May 19, 2012 at 03:16 #

    Yes she looks stunning. But it seems like some wardrobe malfunction is going on on the other side….

  28. MR May 19, 2012 at 05:22 #

    i think the pink-lacey gown Karlie Kloss wore to the Met Gala was the first look from Jason Wu Resort 2013

  29. A. May 19, 2012 at 05:44 #

    Dont know about the dress. But she looks avant grade. Super beautiful!

  30. Incroyable May 19, 2012 at 05:54 #

    If this is a peek at Jason Wu’s Resort 2013 collection, the rest is better left unseen.

    This just looks like many garments crashed unto one poor starlet.

  31. Alina May 19, 2012 at 06:22 #

    I really like this.

  32. Mahin May 19, 2012 at 07:56 #

    The blue in the dress is perfect for her eyes!!

  33. Terry May 19, 2012 at 12:36 #

    She carried a side-lock clutch by Judith Leiber.

    • Fashion Critic May 19, 2012 at 16:22 #

      thank you

  34. Jess2 May 19, 2012 at 13:13 #

    I LOVE this look, in incorporates many of my loves, blue, lace and Diane hehe and her hair and makeup is perfection. She is just such a beautiful woman, it is so unfair hehe

  35. Emi May 19, 2012 at 13:44 #

    I love it, as usual when it comes to Diane’s looks. FC, I saw other photos of her with J. Jackson and Virginie Ledoyen, do you know whose her white dress was? I have a slow connection, so I didn’t read all the posts… And thanks for all these great posts… God bless Cannes Film Festival :-)

    • Fashion Critic May 19, 2012 at 16:32 #

      I just found out it was Armani

      • Emi May 21, 2012 at 06:29 #

        Thanks, I think that dress is very classy, Virginie looked amazing.

  36. Riley F May 19, 2012 at 13:45 #

    My two favourite things, Diane Kruger and Jason Wu, how could I not love…

  37. J2 May 19, 2012 at 13:57 #

    Don’t care for this dress. I could also live without seeing her boob.

  38. Ritika May 19, 2012 at 19:22 #

    She can do better but this is great nevertheless. Just look at her face, how perfect is she looking. I want those earrings!
