You guys, Diane Kruger is really on top of things. She's finishing up the second season of her gritty FX drama The Bridge; she was just awarded a star on the walk of fame in her home country of Germany; and she has basically the cutest relationship ever with my favorite Dawson's Creek alum, Joshua Jackson. And that's just in her career and personal life, which means I've yet to mention the fact that, on the fashion front, Kruger never fails to stay well ahead of the curve while outshining practically every other star on the red carpet.
Whether it's Kruger's intricate braid that had to be seen to be believed; her ability to dictate what shapes, styles, and colors you'll want to wear for the upcoming season (like this pretty pastel peach for fall); or her penchant for pulling off super-couture gowns and ensembles, the actress and former model always seems to be one step ahead of the style game.
So it shouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to believe that Kruger is so far ahead of the style game right now that she's already wearing Spring '15 designer collections. Meaning, the collections that literally walked down the runway just days ago at New York Fashion Week.
Attending the InStyle 20th Anniversary Celebration in New York City, Kruger hit the event's red carpet in a belted Spring '15 number straight off the Prabal Gurung runway. And let's just go ahead and get this out of the way: Yes, she looked even better in it than the model.
Featuring a uniquely cut halter neckline; a flirty and flouncy silk skirt; a set of beautiful graphic prints; and an oversized lavender belt, the outfit screams spring in a way that wants me to skip over fall and winter right this second so I, too, can wear this ensemble (because it's totally in my shopping budget, right?).
Pairing the look with white pumps, a hot pink lip, and a matching lucite clutch, Kruger is absolute perfection in this fresh-off-the-runway look — a fact that should surprise, well, no one.
