  • That dress is on crack.

    • zenobar

      And as we all know: Crack is Whack.

  • GOOD LORD NO!!!!!!!
    Take that dress off instantly, and burn it in front of the insane person who designed it. ( but save those shoes, cuz they kinda seriously rock.)

    • poggi

      I kind of like the shoes too. But she has worn them with this memorable monstrosity. Can she deploy them again?

      • With either skinny pants, or a flirty skirted dress, that is dead simple.

        • poggi

          Shoot. I hit the stupid down comment accidentally when I meant to hit reply (oh good, I fixed it). hate IPads. Yes, that would look so much better. But I fear she has wasted these memorable shoes on this mess. Perhaps some other lady star is taking note and can one-up Kruger.

    • I unreservedly LOVE the shoes! Wish I had an extra thousand laying around to snap them up. They’d rock my summer, robotic fantastic!

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Dangle, big earring!
      Smockron smapron lace delight
      WOW shoes kick yo ass.

      • Slick haired blonde Gurl
        Torch douchey frankendress now
        I keep your cool shooz

      • libraangel

        Sorry, I like you, but I am so over the KUs

  • BrooklynBomber

    Sorry, Thakoon: we know a Frankendress when we see one.

  • jackiexx

    woah, i think thats too much going on for even ms. kruger to work…

  • Sobaika

    Nope. I used to think she could wear anything.

  • charlotte

    Nope. Saoirse takes this round. Although Diane’s too-flat-on-top hair still looks better than Saoirse’s (I never thought I’d say that).

  • lehen

    i get that she’s a fashionista and all, but that’s a lot of side-boob.

  • zenobar

    There’s a snag/hole right above the waistline, on the right side of her body. It’s the unspoken hazard of those sheer panels.

  • All I can see is really white side boob. No, no, no.

  • Mismarker

    Side boob shrouded in black lace is still side boob. Keep it classy, Kruger.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      side boob is inevitable in an apron…. and the lace brings the class. (you should read that with sarcasm-voice, I think this frock is a schmatte.)

  • I love it until the sheer panel on the front of the dress. That’s right, I like the deployment of side boob, but I don’t like the flash of thigh. It’s a conundrum, but there it is.

    • dschubba

      I’m with you. The mullet hem and the polka-dot beading is what’s ruining this for me.

      • Oh god! I didn’t even SEE the mullet hem. I really am bewitched buy Ms. Kruger. She has blinded me with science.

  • Anniebet

    The shoes and earrings are nearly a whole outfit by themselves. A plain black shift would be all that’s necessary.

  • gabbilevy


  • Friggin lace, illusion netting, see-through/cut out dresses. STOP IT. Next trend, please.

  • rissa42210

    It’s not doing anything for me. It looks like too much.

  • I think she’s fucking flawless, head to toe. I forgive the side boob.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Aagh. When is sheer ending? So over it. Okay, I was never under it. But really over it.

    • DeborahJozayt

      Lets just go straight through it with scissors and fire. Rambo-style.

  • Imasewsure

    Hate the dress but love the shoes on her for some reason. Think I would love the earrings and the shoes with something simpler… maybe that burgundy column dress from our earlier post!

  • Lovely earrings. But the rest – no. I think I dislike plastered back hair as much as mermaid hair.

  • Deb Oswald

    I don’t so mind the dress, but can’t get past her flat as can be hair. It looks like she has a shrunken head!!

  • Tourette syndrome for me…..! arg horrible all together!

  • schadenfreudelicious

    even Diane can fail at her attempt to cram too many trends into one outfit…

  • kmk05

    How is it possible that this dress is making her look broad? SHE IS SO FREAKING TINY. The shoes clash with the dress too. Definitely an OUT for me.

  • roadtrip1000

    Desperation on a platter. “Here. Look at me! I’m wearing sheer panels and my side-boobs are exposed!” The fact that her make-up is flawless and the earrings are beautiful just makes it more tragic.

  • Indigo54

    This is a first eliminated look from Project Runway. Nina refused to even comment on it.

  • susan6

    Everything above the neck is flawless. The dress and shoes are wacktastic individually and even worse when together.

  • poggi

    Economists would be proud. Diane clearly has a comparative advantage here (while it doesn’t look good, it looks better on her than it would on anybody else).

  • EEKstl

    I know intellectually I should hate this…but I just don’t. I love the whole thing. Go figure.

  • jilly_d

    That is possibly the worst RC hair I’ve ever seen.

  • PastryGoddess

    What is it with ladies and scrolldown fug today. Those shoes are great…with another dress

  • Sara__B

    Love the shoes and the earrings, but HATE the tacky dress.

  • filmcricket

    Love the shoes, but they don’t go with the dress. And the dress really bad.

  • Alyssa

    I don’t care for the sideboob or the dress.. Makeup is gorge, and I’ll take the earrings when she’s done with them.

  • Nothing from the neck down is doing anything for me. Her hair and makeup look great (except for that lipstick), and I love the earrings. The rest? MEH.

  • lrober03

    I could almost tolerate the sheer side panels until I saw that they ended up on the front of the dress. That brought it way down for me.

  • hotpaprika

    This dress would look slutty on someone else but she doesn’t lose her class. She’s gifted! It’s an ugly dress by the way. Dear God, what if a Kardashian wore this dress?

  • Carly Warnock

    Why did those shoes have to be deployed? Barf. Otherwise I love it. She is so badass looking in it despite the sheer panels.

  • I think it’s risky and sharp and crazy fabulous. I generally hate the sheer lace thing that is happening (like that HORRIBLE getup Jessica Biel wore the other day), but this is so precise and well-executed that I like it. She looks different and impeccable.

  • kimmeister

    What kills me about the sheer side panels is that they’re on a full skirt. One gust of wind could nudge it to one side and her hooha would be on full display.

  • ConnieBV

    I kind of love this, except for the earrings. Strangely the earrings killed it for me.

    • I actually don’t hate it either and I think it would be better sans earrings.

  • MilaXX

    LOVE the hair/makeup, especially the face, the dress is as okay as an “I’m not wearing any underwear” dress can be, hate the shoe.

  • *bowing down*

  • Hetha Innis

    Keep the shoes and nothing else.

  • kirkyo

    I think it’s gorgeous and right in her wheelhouse. And, apparently, polarizing.

  • Nonmercisansfacon

    The only thing I want here are the earrings!

  • libraangel

    My goodness, this little Fraulein gets around! Nothing else to say about this dress but hate

  • ankali

    That dress looks like what someone who really admired her style but wasn’t all that talented would come up with if you asked him to design something for Diane Krueger.

    I was WILD about those shoes when I thought they were metallic turquoise, less so when I realized they were just reflecting the color of the carpet. They’re still pretty fierce, though.

  • erinbinek

    Hate the earrings, hate the shoes. Also, if she leans back any more, she’ll keel over.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    That headshot is the definition of stunning but the the look as a whole is just off. The earrings are to fancy for the dress, too many sheer panels and the chrome perforated shoes (as noted below) reflect the green carpet making them appear to be almost teal with tiny white polka dots.

  • lizajane1776

    No dancing in that dress!

  • She obviously stole this dress from Chloe Sevigny, but the shoes and earrings are everything. Totally maje.

  • Sally Brownson

    It’s AMAZING how close she is to making that ugly thing work. Fierce shoes, great makeup and hair… she might’ve managed to pull this off with just the sheer side panels, but with the sheer panel at the bottom of the skirt, it just isn’t pretty.

  • crash1212

    Ghastly dress. Just SO ugly. Nothing about it is good. Nothing. Burn it, baby. Can’t unsee.

  • Louise Bryan

    Earrings to die for
    A dress that raises eyebrows
    Silver peep-toes yawns

  • Sheer has been so overdone, we are mere minutes away from seeing full vag on the runways, mark my words!

  • oohsparkley!

    The dress is awful, but she still looks great. And I love the shoes!

  • Those shoes belong with a different outfit. The only thing I loved was from the neck up. I thought she was supposed to be this fashionista?

  • libraangel

    Broken record me: why does this new format not go time-wise- first 8 hours, then 6, then 21 minutes, then 8 hours again?!
    And why is Kiltdntiltd always near the top?!

  • gracedarling

    Divine! I think she can pull it off, and I must be immune to the sheer/lace/panel hate, as I genuinely love this dress.

  • Trisha26

    Soft-core adult video awards, complete with bondage sandals. Love the earrings.

  • handknit

    The dress looks like a tit curtain, and the model has Star Trek hair. Weird all around.

  • jw_ny

    hate everything…head to toe!

  • no. but the make-up is fabulous.

  • mila_8

    Dressing for a twee sci fi premier, I think she knocked it out of the park.

  • bd73

    amazing footwear, but not one of her best dresses.

  • guest2visits

    Love the shoes, the jewelry, the hair-style. Hate what they did to the beautiful fabric with those stupid looking cutouts.

  • jetpackdino

    Two strikes in a row for Diane. I’m starting to become concerned.

  • formerlyAnon

    No. The sheer portions throw the proportions off from most angles. A tragic waste of lovely fabric.

  • kathrineb

    Just no.

  • she has a huge forehead and flat top, so it kind of square top, and ppl with this kind of head should never wear their hair this tight and this flat, I know, cos I have the same top…. agree on the off proportions, so again, no, love to look a the shoes alone, but not with the dress, so no…. the only thing I love are those ear rings.

  • notterriblybitter

    Diane, I love most of your fashion choices and have defended some that were questionable but this is too much. The shoes and the earrings are gorgeous though.

  • marilyn

    That is more of a costume than a dress. The shoes and earrings fight with the dress for attention. What a mess.

  • Please, Santa, send me those earrings.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    I’m really sick of the “Lookit, I’m not wearing underwear!! Therefore I’m super sexy!” dresses. Make it STOP.
