Watch the sky for flying pigs, and keep an eye out for snowballs in hell: Diane Kruger missed the mark with a red-carpet look this week, allowing another actress to edge her out for Style Superstar honors and marking what may well be the end of the world as we know it. (Or maybe she was just having an off day. Still: WE’RE SCARED.) Both Diane and Kate Bosworth donned shiny-stiff column dresses for events, but it’s Kate who wore it best and wins the day. How’d that play out? Scroll down for deets.
Kate, our Style Superstar, was aglow in this Stella McCartney number—and while column dresses are a challenge to wear, this is how it’s done. Though the length could be a little better (read: shorter), Kate managed to pick a dress whose shimmery palette was perfectly matched to her skin, along with a complementary coral-colored lipstick and sparkly nude heels with whisper-thin straps. And she’s so statuesque, she can work this stiff, straight up-and-down silhouette like a boss. Well-played, Kate!
Meanwhile, the usually-flawless Diane Kruger sported a similarly shaped Chanel number in bold cobalt and black—but unlike just about everything else she’s worn, ever, this dress fails to flatter her. The elongated rectangular pattern reinforces the already-blocky silhouette, and on Diane’s petite frame, it looks like she’s wearing a haute-couture barrel. But since her accessories are flawless (that gold clutch is to die for), we’ll chalk this up to a rare miss rather than the end of an era of fashion dominance.
