Whilst there may be no red carpet here. For, the floor is a chequered marble. This is nonetheless an image of a perennially stylish screen goddess at a glittering, paparazzi strewn event. Here’s Diane Kruger – a best dressed list regular – at Maria Grazia Chiuri’s inaugural couture show for Christian Dior. The actress has selected a modern-day homage to Mr Dior’s New Look, with its cinched waist and full midnight black skirt. Her look’s been brought up-to-date for contemporary critics with an in-perfect hemline, adorned minaudière and choker.
I think these confetti lucite earrings from my 1940s collection would work expertly with this look. The bronze tones will compliment Diane’s gilt necklace and the black hues will pick out the colour of her head-turning off-the-shoulder dress. Additionally, although old, these earrings are far from ‘past it’ – their cuff design is on trend once again and would (paradoxically) add another contemporary twist to her look.
