Diane Kruger at the Berlin Film Festival
It’s no secret that Diane Kruger is one of our favourite fashionistas here at Grazia HQ. So you can imagine our delight to see her back on the red carpet last night to promote her new film, Farewell My Queen, at the Berlin Film Festival. Keeping true to her form, she made the bold choice to wear this dramatic gown by Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Yep, Diane's done it again.

The ravishing gown is covered in sequins and nipped in at the waist with a statement belt. She completed the look with a polka dot cape wrapped around her neck, thus contuining her reign as the person least likely to follow the crowd when it comes to red carpet dressing. Plus, with an ear full of piercings, a tight bun to accentuate those gorgeous cheekbones and a Judith Leiber animal clutch bag, the look is perfection.
Diane Kruger in 10 Crosby by Derek Lam
Earlier in the day, the actress attended a press conference for the film and looked flawless in a 10 Crosby by Derek Lam floral dress with a striped monochrome skirt worn over the top – yes, we said over the top. How can that possibly work, you ask? Be warned: Diane may be the only person alive who could pull it off.
Even more astonishingly, Diane doesn’t have a stylist and has admitted to hand-picking her awesome outfits herself - and yet she's still one of the most fashion-tastic girls on the block. For that, we salute you, Frau Krüger!
As for the film itself, Farewell My Queen concentrates on the relationship between Marie Antionette (played by our Diane) and one of her ciphers during the last days of the French Revolution. Also attending last night premiere were her co-stars, including Lea Seydoux in a gorgeous red gown, Charlotte Gainsbourg looking typically cool, French fancy Virginie Ledoyen and a be-suited Jake Gyllenhaal. We swoon.
