Diane Kruger In Carven - Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 2013 Installation Luncheon

Diane Kruger was also at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2013 Installation Luncheon, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel yesterday afternoon in California, where she was joined onstage by actor Demian Bishir.

The German actress put a fashion-girl spin on plaid, donning a Carven Resort 2014 strapless, drape-front midi dress, complete with side pockets. Who knew tartan could look this fresh?

Veering away from the flat loafer-sandals seen on the model, she moderately dressed up the frock with a pair of dove-grey Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals that matched the muted plaid tones.

I nearly expected to see the ubiquitous white pump make an appearance here, so I was pleasantly surprised with the subtle change of pace.

A loose side ponytail and a radiant, berry lip put the finishing touches on this effortlessly chic entrance.
