Diane Kruger Is A '70s Goddess In Venice

by Sienna Fantozzi

We've seen the '70s trend on the runways and in fall fashion ads, but now we're seeing it in celebrity street style. If you weren't 100 percent sold on the trend, get ready to be. According to People magazine, Diane Kruger arrived at the Venice Film Festival wearing a '70s style dress that is so flawless, I can't even begin to fathom what her actual juror outfits will be.

Kruger, who's serving as a member of the jury at the Italian film festival, touched down in Venice on Tuesday looking like a super chic Stevie Nicks. The Inglorious Basterds star paired her Thankoon black-and-white, gauzy maxi skirt with a matching floral, mesh-paneled bodysuit and a simple pair of nude sandals. Emerging from her water taxi (even that sounds chic) looking like a '70s goddess should be a scene out of a movie, but nope — it's just everyday Diane. It's casual.

But before you get too sad that summer is ending, taking with it the ability to wear billowing, ethereal clothing, Kruger wins even more points because she made this outfit totally appropriate for fall. The black-and-white print is definitely not summery, but she also paired it with a black tote bag, dark, oversized sunglasses, and a wide-brim brown hat. You're basically one Pumpkin Spice Latte away from a crisp, October day.

And the festival hasn't even started yet.

Here's a few ways to recreate her look with a maxi dress.
