Although originally on the model, this combination of print and colour does not mesh well, Diane Kruger seems to make it work for the 20th Anniversary celebration of InStyle magazine at Paramount Hotel in New York earlier this month. Better than make it work, Kruger makes it look dazzling. The dash of hot pink (Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora’ clutch) brings this attire alive and the pointed shoes add a quirky trait.
This collection had just been displayed on the catwalk days before at New York Fashion Week. The styling in both images may have subtle changes yet they create major impact; the model looks older and tired though more natural, whereas Diane looks fresher and more relaxed. Purple is a colour that has not appeared much on the red carpet lately, therefore it is pleasant to see an actress breaking the code and styling the outfit to suit her rather than mimic the catwalk.
