Diane Kruger arrived at the end of the night like she was Rihanna or Beyonce but the competition for awesome looks was so high that she’s not even in my top ten. Look at this gown it’s got an elaborately gathered and layered back, low puff sleeves, and silver applique along the front and down the train. The bell shape is so cool. Gurung probably considers this his showpiece, especially since his other gowns last night were lovely but not as striking as this. It’s an awesome dress but not next level. Her headpiece is by Philip Treacy and that brings in the Catholic element, but I want to see more theme in the gown.
Hailee Steinfeld was somewhat underwhelming, but still lovely, in crisp white Prabal Gurung column down with silver edging. This has angelic elements with the winged back (I got that line from Brad Goreski on E!) but again I’m not getting the theme. She capped it with a silver and pearl crown.
I saw Gabrielle Union on the carpet right before Rihanna arrived and I felt sorry for her because she was so overshadowed. She was in a highlighter yellow Prabal Gurung gown spaghetti strap gown with a high slit and long train. Gorgeous dress and this could be a nod to Vatican yellow, but like these other Gurung looks it needs something more. Also, check out the bridesmaid shoes. Hailee had on matchy shoes like that too.
