Diane Kruger has awesome taste and a super talented stylist. She always chooses clothes well. She’s fashion forward but wears clothes that suit her. Kruger just gets it and seems to have fun with fashion – which is how it should be. Here she is in a chic embellished little black strapless dress at the Chanel Little Black Jacket Event in Sao Paulo. Interesting, the dress is a modified version this one from the legendary fashion house’s spring 2013 haute couture collection. She completes the look with her favourite black-ankle strap Stuart Weitzman sandals, a nice simple compliment to the heavily detailed dress. Her hair is perfect and soft and the makeup is light and fresh. Once again, Diane nailed her red carpet look.
A Chanel couture dress is going to be in the tens of thousands of dollars but I’ve found a couple of similar options that would work well for Christmas party season. ML Monique Lhuillier’s black strapless embroidered cocktail dress ($520 at neimanmarcus.com) is a similar shape to Chanel’s much more expensive version. And Topshop’s limited edition organza shirt dress ($255 at topshop.com) is an affordable option if you want to emulate Diane’s look. As far as the shoes, these black ankle-strap sandals from Topshop are almost identical to Diane’s and they’re a great price ($115). A perfect style of shoe to pair with any dress over the holidays.
