It’s a very cute dress, and we can’t even say it looks bad on her, necessarily. But it doesn’t look quite … right on her, does it? We feel like this belongs on a downtown kinda gal. An indie chick hipster type. Give it to Zosia Mamet or Lena Dunham, we say. The juxtaposition would really work. Diane’s too much of a Betty Draper type to wear a pseudo-Betty Draper dress. It comes off almost costumey.

Don’t like those shoes here. Love the sandals on the model.

Next up: Girl, that is so your dress.

See? This is her wheelhouse. Sharp, sophisticated, vaguely international somehow, and possessing just a bit of edge. This is the outfit we wish Allison Williams had the nerve to wear.

We have no idea why this post became about the cast of Girls.

    • Thomas

      Love the redhead model in the first dress. Not enough ginger models!

      • Anna

        Her hair is luscious.

      • Glam Dixie

        I still remember vividly the gorgeous model who walked in Laura Bennett’s PR show that had waist length copper penny colored hair. I have never coveted anyone’s hair so badly.

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Hooray for Gingers!

      • Richard Harris

        Kinda looks like a young Rachel Zoe

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      That first dress is doing atrocious things to her coloring.

    • Glam Dixie

      First dress looks like something Taylor Swift would leave the gym in, the second dress I like on her but dang is that thing short. Add a couple of inches to the hem and I’ll bump it up to love. The orange shoes are exactly right.

      • Rhonda Shore

        I was thinking Zooey Deschanel for the first dress but Taylor works…

        • Alloy Jane

          Heh, I was thinking Michelle Williams. But yes, that first dress is for the twee at heart.

    • joancarol

      I want to be her in my next life.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I love them both…

    • amanda siegelson

      my heart has been stolen – and it’s all due to someone wearing orange shoes… swoon…

    • Denise Rambo

      LOVE the orange pumps with the neutral glen plaid!

      • kimmeister

        I don’t love the trickiness of the dress, but I do love the combo that you mentioned.

    • ChaCha_70

      Loving that shot of her looking back smiling as she’s getting into the limo. You can tell she was a model.

    • Heather

      Those white sandals look like they’re about to fall off her feet, which leaves me afraid for her ankles.

    • Anna

      She looks she’s dressing up as a flower girl in the first dress. Not helping: the too-big white sandals and the fact that she looks like she’s about to twist her ankle.

      LOVE the Prince of Wales check and the orange pumps, even the weird pintucks and darts on her version and the logo bag aren’t bothering me like they normally would.

    • Bad Idea Jeans

      That first dress is very Fraulein Maria with a guitar and a gaggle of children wearing clothes made of curtains. “Let’s start at the very beginning…” It actually looks like it was made out of curtains…from the sixties.

      • kimmeister

        I totally thought of Maria Von Trapp too (before she became Mrs. Von Trapp)!

    • @Biting Panda

      I love Kruger Barbie.

    • Rebekah B

      I wanna see Keira Knightley in the first dress.

    • Kitten Mittons

      I love both dresses. I wish the sleeves were shorter on the first dress, more like cap sleeves. Otherwise she looks lovely, very soft and pretty.
      I want, need, must have that second dress.

    • teensmom99

      I love both dresses on her. She was a model and can wear most things and I liked how it was unexpected.

    • hughman

      Stepford Wife Rehab : Before and After.

    • fromanotherplanet

      I love the first dress minus the sleeve.

    • mjude

      I do like the 2nd look.. ok I just love how filthy the street is. made my day

    • MilaXX

      I’d like to start off by pointing out the shoes in the first look. They are easily a size too big. That blow to hell that I don’t use a stylist drivel because what woman in her right mind purposely chooses a shoe a size too big? That said, I think the first dress might work better on her if the sleeves were removed. As is this is too twee for her. Give this to Michelle Williams (the white one – ha!), or Keirnan Shipka.
      I like the second look but the dress could use a good 2 – 3 inches added to it. Not sure what’s happening with the hair though.

    • SewingSiren

      Very pretty, both.

    • Imasewsure

      Love the first dress for someone edgier (or even a Fanning with the right edgy shoes). Love the print and the whole thing for the second look (a couple of inches longer, yes, but love it anyway)

    • Danielle

      I’ve wanted a Neverfull since I was 12. Sigh.

    • Tami from Seattle

      I don’t know. That 2nd dress looks too tricky to me.

    • Qitkat

      Love the classic grey plaid, love the orange pumps, HATE the oversized LV weekender used as a purse.

      The tweeness of the first dress is too much even for Betty Draper; the fabric belongs to a long flowey minimal strapless dress for a resort evening outdoor party on the beach.

      • marlie

        She’s carrying the same bag in the fist picture. It seems like it’s actually full of stuff, so at least she’s not carrying around an empty bag that’s just for show.

        • Qitkat

          Oh I know, I just don’t like enormous purses.

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

      because we all want diane kruger to play jessa’s older, has-it-together half-sister, that’s why.

    • Tracy_Flick

      Send that first dress straight to Florence Welch. Add a couple of inches to the hem of that second dress, otherwise it looks like a sewing error.

      • Gatto Nero

        It would improve the proportions, too.

    • Kent Roby

      The first dress is so boring, then it’s all BAM! with the second one; love it!

    • AlisonHendryx

      Look! She has stuff in her bag!!

    • melanie0866

      LOVE the orange shoes with the plaid dress!

    • Boulderista

      The first dress brings to mind an out-of-date bathroom with big flowers attached to the bottom of the tub and a sheer, highly flammable shower curtain

    • nycfan

      I think the colors on the first dress are a big part of the problem with the first dress, as well as an odd fit in the bodice. Second outfit looks great.

    • VioletFem

      She looks best in the second dress. It is urban, sharp and yet still a bit quirky. I also love the unexpected pop of color with the orange pumps.

      On a totally unrelated note, I never really noticed her resemblance to Taylor Schilling until that last picture on this post.

    • bayusc

      I’d totally wear the 2nd dress. Not digging the LV bag with it though.

    • http://www.basicallyimcomplicated.com Gabby

      I actually like both of them a lot. Since she can pull off the more out-there looks, I like to see her go that route, but the more classic look is pretty and sophisticated, so I’m not gonna hate.

    • Janet B

      First dress belongs to the model.

    • kerryev

      Honor really went nuts with the early 70s bedsheets in this collection.

    • KT

      The second look is a million times better. Love that dress.

    • FibonacciSequins

      The first looks like she’s on her way to a christening. Second is so much better on her and wise choice to wear orange heels. I don’t much like that fold across the hips – looks like she and the model both have to hunch over to fit the dress. A fold too far, if you ask me.

    • decormaven

      Those orange pumps are fabulous. Favorite shoe shown this week!

    • msdamselfly

      I totally disagree. I think she looks poised and put together in the first outfit. The second one, although the sleeves,neckline and fabric look great on her, is too short and too tight.

    • Wink

      Love the second dress, but it’s a bit too short.

    • annrr

      That first dress is a shower curtain with some no slip bath tub flowers stuck on it. Circa 1970

    • LJCdoc

      I love the shoes with the second dress, but I don’t understand why designers feel the constant need to randomly fold things. First dress is really not for her.

    • suzq

      Sleeves are too long and the skirt is too full on the first dress. The second dress should be burned. If you could alter that first dress (and wear the orange shoes with it) you’d have a look.

    • Mothra

      I kind of wish she was hopping on the back (sidesaddle, of course) of a motorbike instead of heading into a limo. That first dress. Ug.

    • evave2

      LOVE the orange shoes in the second look. The first look is a little too “ladylike” for her. Not that it doesn’t look good (I agree with T/L), it’s just a little off.

    • StrandedFashionista

      The second dress is amazing!

    • tarqueeny

      I prefer the metallic blue mini dress, but she looks gorgeous.
      Does she actually work anymore? All I ever see is pictures of her wandering about in clothes with Joshua Jackson hanging off her arm. The woman needs to get back to her career and stop being famous for being famous.

      • saintebeuve

        Uh, she’s a lead on The Bridge, the second season of which is about to start on FX. So, there’s that.

    • Lilithcat

      The brown Vuitton logo pattern next to the grey plaid makes my eyes twitch.

    • cocohall

      Can anyone tell me what she is famous for? Did she model? She was on the View yesterday and other than giving Germany a shout out for their World Cup win, she was completely forgettable. I think her hair is pretty in the first look, but neither dress seems right; the first one looks like it belongs in a Fanning closet and the second one looks like it is being held together with double-sided tape. But Orange Shoes. She DID get the pop of color memo.

    • marlie

      I have the opposite opinion about these two dresses. The first one is really pretty, and I actually like the modern interpretation of Betty Draper on her. It’s also an example of sheer deployed well. I really dislike the second dress. It looks like she borrowed it from a child, with the high waist and how short and tight it is on her.

    • demidaemon

      Love the second dress on her. The first is way too demure for Diane Kruger.

    • Sophie

      Don’t like the bulge on her hip in the second dress, but I love that she is wearing it in grey plaid instead of shiny satiny blue. The big flowers on the first dress look very childish.

    • Man Dala

      I think she looks beautiful in both shots. It’s amazing what a smile can do. She looks relaxed, confident, and she’s owning it.

    • CatLady

      I would wear the second outfit, minus the brown bag.

    • Shannon Long

      Dudes, Diane Kruger turned 38 yesterday. I don’t know what reptilian god she’s praying to, but I’m willing to convert.

    • Radish

      While she has amazing legs, I think some of the short dresses she wears are not very age-appropriate.

    • altermyego

      When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).
      I’m not convinced that is anybody’s dress but I’ll give her credit for being venue appropriate.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      First dress should be on a Fanning. Second dress is cute in theory but looks too lumpy, and is pulling in weird directions. Also hate her hair and make up in the second dress. Or maybe I just don’t get Diane Kruger. Could be that.
