God bless the major European film festivals. They clearly intimidate the stars into dressing quite a bit better than they would any other time. We’ve been enjoying the steady stream of sartorially nervous celebrities over the weekend. Not that Diane really needed the boost to get her fashion shit together. She’s always dressed for attention.

We have to say, this is working for us, despite the description. See, we have this thing about describing a garment out loud if you’re not sure about it. Something about hearing it classified and described helps put it in perspective. So when you say “long-sleeved, high-necked, deep purple gown,” out loud, you might be forgiven for leaping to the conclusion that this was some sort of overblown, too-serious mess of a dress. But it’s really not. It’s lovely, in fact. Granted, we don’t think most ladies could pull this off without looking over-wrought, but Diane has a knack for minimalism, even when it’s rendered in eggplant-colored velvet. All the styling choices – from jewelry to hair – are just right for the look. She looks low-key without looking sister-wife; she looks luxurious without looking tacky. We’re digging it.
But she must be sweating like crazy.
