Diane Kruger In Chanel – Chanel’s Fine Jewelry 80th Anniversary Celebration

The first name on any Chanel event guest list, I’m sure, is Diane Kruger.

She joined Blake Lively on the red carpet at the celebration of Chanel Fine Jewelry’s 80th anniversary of the ‘Bijoux De Diamants’ collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in New York City yesterday evening.

Not surprisingly, she had first dibs on the Chanel Spring 2013 collection, as she often does, but I can’t say I’m particularly enamoured by this look.

Firstly the dress appears to be a tad too tight, squishing her twins. Secondly the strapless blue-and-black knee-length dress isn’t that exciting, or interesting.

But that may be down to Diane’s styling, because for once the model outdoes her on that score.

Diane selected a yellow satin clutch and black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

Does this look work for you?

    I actually like this look. I would only change the size of the dress and the shoes, as they are quite boring.

    Well, to her credit, NOBODY looked that great at this event. It just tells me that Chanel is no longer suitable for any woman that is not 5’10 and
    -100 lbs. This dress does NOTHING for her.

    Nope-it just looks like a glitzy bath towel!

    This is a first, I like the model’s look a lot better.

    The dress was gonna be a lose-lose situations either way, have it this tight – too much cleavage, wear ti looser – it falls down.
    Her clutch is Chanel, I believe resort 2012.

    Everyone looked bad this night!
    Chanel Fail

    I am usually a huge fan of Diane. Not so much on this occasion. I like that she went for a yellow clutch, but sadly that’s the only thing I like about this look. The dress is ugly, and the fit is even worse. And don’t even get me started on the shoes.. She can do so much better than this…

  8. Nat39 October 10, 2012 at 18:05 #

    Bad fit and even worse styling. Big fail in my book.

  9. Noemi October 10, 2012 at 17:52 #

    Without praise or blame, for me. But… if Diane Kruger, the Queen of style doesn’t look amazing at a Chanel event… who can? Rose Byrne was definitely the best. Maybe this dress could be great with better accessories.

    If only she had pulled it up–could have worked. I like the concept of the dress, but it just doesn’t quite work.

    I Love It, she looks AMAZING. I think the dress is interesting enough; is not a typical/classic chanel dress and I love the styling too. It’s modern, fresh and not predictable. FABOULOUS as always… PERFECTION

  12. Christine October 10, 2012 at 14:49 #

    Not a great look.

  13. Lily October 10, 2012 at 14:43 #

    Something is wrong with this look.
    He needs more interesting shoes,or another clutch.Or both.
    she definitely had to wear a necklace

  14. Amy October 10, 2012 at 14:21 #

    I LOVE the fabric but the shape makes it look like she is wrapped in a towel.Anyway still love Diane

  15. rebecca o October 10, 2012 at 14:11 #

    It looks like she’s wearing bathroom tiles.

  16. Sonya October 10, 2012 at 14:02 #

    Is it not, essentially, the mosaic tiles of a bathroom stuck to a towel that has then been wrapped around the lass?

  17. dee October 10, 2012 at 14:01 #

    The dress is terrible to begin with. I like her hair, makeup and clutch.

  18. Connie October 10, 2012 at 13:34 #

    I think this needs a necklace and better shoes. But does anyone else think this is going to ignite those pregnancy rumors.

    • Fashion Critic October 10, 2012 at 13:51 #

      I think she looks pregnant, I’m glad someone else said it first

    • Hannah October 10, 2012 at 21:43 #

      ITA. I thoght it a bit with her last look, but definitely with this one. Especially the photos that are a bit to the side.

  19. Beta October 10, 2012 at 13:33 #

    I’m officially over Chanel. I don’t remember the last runway I enjoyed. I feel Karl, or his ghost designer team, just make overly fussy, unflattering clothes. Some pieces are good, and you can see that the quality and the workmanship put behind the garments is great, but the overall design and concept is poor, imo. And the shoes… chanel shoes are a mess.
    I’m going to say it softly because I know Karl has a lot of die hard supporters jeje, but I think that it’s about time Chanel hired a new designer that brought new air.

    • itsmecq October 10, 2012 at 16:03 #

      totally, Karl should take a vacation or sth. This collection r very boring, i cant get the point.

  20. TeuntjeVDW October 10, 2012 at 12:20 #

    This is not my favorite look of Diane Kruger!

  21. Molly October 10, 2012 at 12:05 #

    Looks like a post-shower bath towel on both Diane and the model. Don’t think even the best styling or the gorgeous fabric could save this under any condition.

    Terrible dress and the fit is all wrong: too tight and it sits too low.
    The (lack of) shape doesn’t help either: it looks like a very fancy towel that she just wrapped around her body.

  23. LeeAnn October 10, 2012 at 11:32 #

    Even Diane couldn’t pull this look off. I think the jewellry the model is wearing helps detract from the hideous dress.

  24. Joy October 10, 2012 at 11:03 #

    I really hate to say thing about something that is Chanel, but the shape reminds me of a towel wrap or cover-up thingy. Definitely not Chanel or Diane’s finest fashion moment.

    • Moxie October 10, 2012 at 14:41 #

      Couldn’t agree more. It is a sparkly towel wrap with boring black pumps. The yellow purse is cute, but the rest of the outfit is unfortunate.

  25. Carmen October 10, 2012 at 10:59 #

    This dress has the same shape as a sack, alongside the accessories (minus the clutch) it doesn’t work for me

  26. Alina October 10, 2012 at 10:57 #

    I’m disappointed.

    • EmmaWoodhouse October 11, 2012 at 22:00 #

      Me too. I like blue and yellow as a combo, but this dress is ugly, shapeless, and unworthy of being called fashion. Plus, what is with those shoes? Oh well, even Diane has her off days. (Closes eyes and remembers Cannes)

  27. Mick October 10, 2012 at 10:55 #

    Definitely not her best look, the fit is not flattering. I like the blue dress/yellow clutch combo, the choice of shoes not so much

    • Yeliz October 10, 2012 at 21:24 #

      I agree about everything you said. Silver strappy sandals would have been preferred.

  28. Gillian October 10, 2012 at 10:36 #

    had so much potential if it was a better fit and if she had better shoes, the dress and clutch together I really like. Better than Blake tho if you ask me.
