As you know I was unmoved by Diane Kruger’s previous look, but this is the Diane I know and love.

The German actress joined a host of stars including boyfriend Joshua Jackson, Coco Rocha and Adrien Brody on Friday evening at the Salle Empire, Hotel de Paris in Monaco for an intimate and exclusive gala presented by Jacob Arabo of Jacob & Co. to support two wonderful charities: the Princess Charlene Foundation (supported by Princess Charlene of Monaco) and the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy (supported by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco).

Diane looked stunning wearing a Marchesa Resort 2013 gown, our first look at this collection since it was recently presented.

Never one to play by the ‘rules’, she opted to mix her metals teaming dazzling silver Jacob & Co. pieces with her white gown enriched with gold embellishments.

The gown has a lot going on with the flock of feathers on the sleeves and empire waist. Some may have been overwhelmed by such a striking, show-stopping gown, but Diane carries it off with great aplomb.

I would place this over the Alaia in BDOTW poll.

Do you agree?
