We loved spotting German actress Diane Kruger in a Mary Katrantzou dress and Charlotte Olympia clutch at The Bridge’s premier in Hollywood earlier this month. The embellished dress in graphic, colorful patches and beaded motifs works, thanks to its lean silhouette and short proportions. Plus, it’s a great transitional dress to go from summer to fall! Long sleeves are definitely in for cocktail outfits these days, and this version is a great example.
Kruger balances the statement dress with minimalist accessories, a low ponytail and shimmery, timeless makeup. “Naked” sandals elongate her legs, and the clear bag with a pop of color adds sleekness to the look. Want to imitate Kruger’s ensemble? Go for dresses in interesting jacquards, minimalist shoes (flats work, too) and mini bags in contrasting, solid colors.
