Diane Kruger in a silver Azzedine Alaia gown in NYC: beautiful or busted?

Good God, Diane Kruger is pretty. Right? Sometimes she just takes my breath away. These are photos from last night’s MOMA screening of Diane’s new film, Farewell, My Queen in NYC. In the film, Diane plays Marie Antoinette and the film is described as an “Upstairs, Downstairs” look at palace life before and during the French Revolution. Diane is getting solid-to-excellent reviews, and perhaps she might even be up for some awards this year. That would be a treat, wouldn’t it? Getting to see Diane on multiple red carpets for several months – that would make my year.

Anyway, as you can see, Diane looked awesome at the screening. She wore a beautifully tailored gown by Azzedine Alaia – a design house known for their excellent tailoring on skin-tight dresses and gowns. I like Diane’s styling too – although Diane rarely looks “warm” you know? She rarely looks “accessible”. She tends to look icy and untouchable. Which isn’t the worse thing when you’re trying to become a style icon. For my money, Diane is taking her cues from Nicole Kidman circa 2003. Same kind of vibe.

And I still love that Joshua Jackson is so loyal and he will literally go anywhere Diane wants him to go. He just follows her around like a puppy. A sexy puppy. No, that’s the wrong way to say it. He’s a good boy!

    I’m not a big Fan of Diane…..

    but I’m a Huge fan of her dress! The dress is perfection!

  2. lisa2 says:

    I just feel like the only time I see her is on a Red Carpet posing.

  3. Britt says:

    Her dress is really beautiful, simple and classy.

  4. boobytrap says:

    absolutely stunning. as always!

    • Raven says:

      She reminds me a bit of Grace Kelly with the look and the coolness. Now she would be a perfect person to place Grace in a film.

  5. kay says:

    gorgeous

  6. brin says:

    Perfection!

    • Maguita says:

      I find this dress okay. It is very Mariah Carey, with the mermaid tail, but at least on Diane it isn’t 4 sizes too small.

      However, I am worried about the top of her head… Is her hair thinning out at a worrying pace?

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yup…malnutrition does bad things to the hair.

      • Kara Ann says:

        Don’t know about the thinning but this hairstyle doesn’t do her justice. It seems flat and lifeless. I see what “look” the hair is supposed to be but it doesn’t come off..looks unhealthy.

      • Maguita says:

        I think O.Kitten has it right: Judging by the tremendous weight loss Diane had shown at the Cannes Festival, her hair thinning out might be a clear indication.

        Nothing much she can do when it comes to hairstyles, and like you pointed out @Kara, it’s laying flat. She might have to revert to wigs from now on.

  7. lizzi says:

    she would look so so much better if her hair was in a sleek up-do. i really hate it here.

  8. Lulu says:

    Is he wearing a denim suit? Why does he look like a slob and she’s all decked out? I notice that happens a lot in hollyweird

    • CG says:

      Yeah, my first thought was “WTF is Pacey wearing???” I never thought I’d say this, but he looks terrible.

  9. Turtle Dove says:

    Diane looks gorgeous. I like JJ a lot. I think that he’s a very secure person and doesn’t worry about being with her on the red carpet.

  10. Aussie girl says:

    She looks Aaamazing. But if I had to say something they both look so pre-prepared! Really fake and shall I say, to groomed?

  11. ladybert62 says:

    Nice dress – BUT – she needs to do something with her hair. She has baby fine hair and needs a better cut to shape it and some gel on it. Other than that she is perfect.

  12. Jaime says:

    I for one am sick of her carting Josh around like an accessory. It’s getting old for me. Obviously, it’s his choice and none of my business, but it irks me that she can’t walk a carpet without him.

    • Jo says:

      Diane does alot of red carpet stuff without Josh when he is working, just go and look at Getty Images. Josh has been on holiday lately, though.

  13. Dee Cee says:

    It’s unbearably obvious how plain Jane, modestly invisible hipster vixen is happening in fashion lately? Or she’s trying to appear to be the Keira Knightly Natalie Portman off centered, interestingly unflattering lackluster types huh..

  14. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She looks incredible (that dress!!) but honestly, I only click on the Kruger posts in hopes of seeing Josh. I love him so much. He always looks so good-natured about posing on the carpet with her. Also, he is SUCH a talented actor-I hope he does more in the future because this guy has chops. Anyway, he’s so adorable…and tall!

  15. Janet says:

    Love the dress but for some reason she totally puts me off.

  16. bagladey says:

    The dress is beautiful and she looks great in it but what’s with her hair?

  17. norma says:

    Those who know her will tell you that she not just Looks icy, she IS icy.

    “And I still love that Joshua Jackson is so loyal and he will literally go anywhere Diane wants him to go. He just follows her around like a puppy.”
    ——-
    Ha-ha-ha.You don´t know him at all, do you? He´s not her loyal puppy, believe me.

  18. RHONYC says:

    she looks so unhappy. :-(

  19. Melissa says:

    Ugh – that deep, tight V-neck on Josh is just…no.

  20. foozy says:

    she’s incredibly stunning! but then again, she always is..

  21. Sumodo1 says:

    The dress is slightly too tight in the bust. Diane might be “between weaves.”

  22. Lucy2 says:

    Love the dress, very pretty.

  23. DreamyK says:

    They look like they just had a fight. Nice dress.

  24. Nan says:

    Nice. I don’t think I’ve seen her in that type of mermaid dress for a long time so it is almost refreshing. :D

  25. phoenix says:

    Joshua Jackson has officially lost it for me.

  26. phoenix says:

    Joshua has officially lost it for me.

  27. Nina says:

    I LOVE reading everyone’s comments before I post one. Sometimes they ALL make sense even if they contradict each other! Yes, she’s gorgeous. And yes, she has great style. And yes, she has an Icy Sophisticated Blond-thing going. But it’s all great! I love that she and Mariah Carey can wear the same dress… and she’ll be able to pull it off while Mariah just looks like a hooka… right? She was great in Joyeux Noel!! A very cool film, it made me like her more.

  28. Pigeon says:

    Not to sound harsh, but does she actually work? I only see her out and about in eclectic, high-fashion, or hipster outfits.

  29. Jovia says:

    Beautiful. I love Diane’s casual style as well. She and Josh are an adorable couple. I give her props for making the best of the quality and amount of hair that she has (instead of fake looking weaves, wigs, etc.).

  30. d says:

    FABULOUS!!!!! Fab, fab, fab. Oh, I love her style. And I WISH I could wear a dress like that and look that good AND wear a honey like Josh on my arm. Oh, to dream…

  31. Kate says:

    that dress is just wow! just gorgious! they are so cute together too!
