Diane Kruger has always hit the right notes whenever she steps out for a red carpet appearance. During the InStyle Awards held in Los Angeles on Monday, however, the actress may have failed to impress a few fashion critics with her outfit choice for the evening. Diane wore a gold ankle-length dress detailed with cutouts on the shoulders. She teamed the number with red strappy sandals, a box clutch, and old-Hollwood style hair.

Everything was almost perfect, except that the dress was a tad sheer and it had an odd striped underlayer. I wasn’t too happy with her outfit, but you may think otherwise. Check out Diane’s attire, and then tell me what you think:

Well, any thoughts? Did she nail the look? What do you think of the striped underlayer on her dress?

Diane loves to take risks on the red carpet, and she has always pulled it off in the past. I’m afraid she failed to do so with this one. Would you agree? If it’s any consolation, I love the sandals she used to go with. They are gorgeous!

A quick look-up gave me the name Gianvito Rossi. They’re the “Carey” sandals, a style detailed with four slim buckled straps and 4-inch-tall heels. Below is a closer look at the pair:

Do you fancy the style?

It’s very sexy, indeed. Simply the perfect pair to finish skinny trousers or a floor-grazing gown. If you fancy the Carey, you can grab them online. They retail at almost a thousand dollars.

As for Diane’s dress, the piece is from Preen’s spring 2016 collection. It isn’t available yet, but you’re free to visit the nearest Preen stockist in your city.
