Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti - Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner

After arriving in Venice earlier in the day, Diane Kruger attended the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner celebrating its 180th anniversary at Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Italy yesterday evening.

As the face of the brand, the actress of course wore a classic Jaeger-LeCoultre timepiece with her deep-purple Alberta Ferretti Fall 2013 three-quarter-sleeved velvet gown – which is the strongest signal yet that summer is coming to an end.

I don’t remember the last time I saw Diane wear such a dark colour. I would’ve said this gown was perfect for a brunette, but Diane proves me wrong. She really got into the spirit of the look by matching her dark manicure to her gown.

I’m sure you’re glad Diane didn’t follow Sarah Gadon’s lead by matching her lip colour to her dress; instead Diane opted for a shimmering pink lip colour, wearing her hair back to showcase her stunning star drop H. Stern earrings.
