Dior x Madame Figaro Dinner

Last weekend, Madame Figaro and Dior hosted a dinner during the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 12), with three beauties in attendance.

Diane Kruger: You might have expected Diane to wear Dior, but instead she opted for this Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 matching ensemble. The boxier tunic is in line with the loose-fitting silhouettes we’ve seen thus far in her Cannes run. But, the embellished attitude and queen of hearts motif sees her embrace her signature edgy-forward side. I love her candy-red lip but I wish she had opted for a sleek pump instead of strappy sandals.

Naomi Campbell: I love how regal yet whimsical Naomi looked in this Christian Dior Spring 2018 Haute Couture triple organza dress that was hand-painted and embroidered with a pleated tulle cape. With the cape overlay, it offered a more delicate side to the supermodel’s style, and a refreshing way to wear both sheer and Dior.

Bella Hadid: Speaking of sheer, Bella went for the more ubiquitous Dior look of late with this red tulle corset dress. However, despite the see-through elements, I actually found myself quite liking the sort of beautiful renegade spirit she brought to the frock with the off-the-shoulder detail that insouciantly mixed with the elaborateness of sparkling jewels. My biggest qualm was actually the mini ‘Lady Dior’ bag, as it seemed rather heavy for the diaphanous, diamond-dusted look.

Diane Kruger In Prada – Chopard Trophée

Loose-fitted silhouettes have been the story of Diane Kruger’s 2018 Cannes Film Festival adventure with her Armani Prive gown and the Viktor & Rolf trapeze style mini, so it was only natural that it carried on tonight (May 14) for the Chopard Trophée event.

The actress was the patroness of the Trophée Chopard 2018, which she presented to the new honorees, having won this prize in 2003.

Diane wore a Prada violet silk chiffon plissé bustier gown with emerald crystal and bead-embellished shoulders.

While I love the violet hue, I feel like the embellishments are too much here.

I wish it had been striped back and perhaps made thinner.

Diane Kruger In Viktor & Rolf Soir- Kering x Cannes Dinner

Diane Kruger joined Cate BlanchettChloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart at the Kering x Cannes dinner during the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 13).

Seeing her in this cotton candy pink Viktor & Rolf Soir dress brought a smile to my face. The sugary shade coupled with the sprinkling of embellishment and gentle flare carries such prettiness and was a change of pace from her typical trendy-with-an-edge style.

The short length and silver accessories prevent it from becoming saccharine.

I appreciate that she made it her own with accessories especially as I could see her carrying off the bow slides.

13.05.18 Premiere

Diane Kruger In Armani Prive – ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The star-studded red carpet of the ‘Sink Or Swim (Le Grand Bain)’ Cannes Film Festival premiere on Sunday (May 13) also included Diane Kruger who joined Isabelle Huppert, Jane Fonda, Araya A. Hargate, Marion Cotillard, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Diane often opts for an avant-garde sensibility, but for Cannes she left the edginess for another occasion and relied on the magnetic allure of refined Hollywood glamour.

This Armani Prive asymmetrical gown whispered across the red carpet with dreamy allure.

I love the weightless diaphanous layers rendered in sublime sky blue, with her Chopard jewels proving their sparkling companionship to the embellished bodice.

Diane Kruger In Prabal Gurung – 2018 Met Gala

Diane Kruger had me absolutely enchanted the minute she alighted the carpet at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City.

Her satiny-blue Prabal Gurung confection was indeed heavenly, to say the least.

The magic of the design was that it boasted a certain purity of sweet innocence in the gold filigree, sculpted mini with the elaboration of form in the pouf sleeves and long train.

I love the addition of the netted hair piece to drive home the fairytale-meets-angelic form.

Diane Kruger In Valentino – Lola Awards 2018

When I saw Diane Kruger on the red carpet for the Lola German Film Awards in Berlin on Friday (April 27), it gave me a tinge of excitement as Cannes is just around the corner.

This Valentino Fall 2018 gown has all the drama and intrigue I love about red carpet dressing.

My belief is that some may have been expecting more from Diane when it comes to a major film ceremony, perhaps feeling this a bit muted by her standards, but I love this relaxed this look is, while still maintaining a high sense of  glamorous.

This is vintage Diane for me.
