It’s been a slow month party-wise in New York City. Maybe that’s why a few members of the social set pulled out floor-grazing frocks for the Cinema Society’s Inglourious Basterds screening and Standard Hotel after-party last night (click here for a slideshow). We say it’s never a good idea to outshine the guests of honor, and even at the film’s L.A. premiere last week, Diane Kruger and Angelina Jolie went cocktail length or shorter. Which is why we think Agyness Deyn‘s tee and high-waisted black leather skirt combo strikes just the right note. The fact that it’s a Rocky Horror Picture Show T-shirt and the movie in question was Quentin Tarantino’s exceedingly bloody revenge tale proves the platinum-blonde pixie has style and a sense of humor. What do you think?
OK, we know it’s the dog days of summer, but how much skin do you really need to show to be in? Earlier this week, Diane Kruger came close to exposing her derriere in a dramatic Atelier Versace number, and last night, at the New York premiere ofThe Time Traveler’s Wife, Rachel McAdams’ white jersey dress plunged almost down to her navel. We’re not big fans of frocks that require double-stick tape, but what do you think? Is McAdams overdoing it or just secure in her own skin?
Diane Kruger has been working the red carpet for a solid three months in support of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Angelina Jolie, whose husband, Brad Pitt, plays the lead, shows up for only the big-ticket events—Cannes in May and L.A. yesterday at the film’s West Coast premiere. Their choices last night were another interesting study in contrasts. Kruger’s spangled Atelier Versace, with its bold shoulders and plunging keyhole back, was the dress of a fashion adventuress; you don’t have to study her press junket pics to see that she obviously loves clothes. Jolie’s strapless black leather Michael Kors number, on the other hand, was decidedly more minimalist. Not in the least understated, but the choice of a woman who’s always depended more on her pillow lips and other pneumatic gifts than on fashion for red-carpet impact. Whose dress do you like better?
Diane Kruger dishes on her Inglourious Basterds style: “The best [part of this role] was actually getting down and dirty. To have the ripped skirt, the [bullet] hole in the leg—being disheveled is usually more fun.” Cue bullet hole-patterned leggings for Spring. [WWD]
Paula Abdul’s out and Posh is in. She’s not coming on as a permanent judge, but Victoria Beckham is slated to tell it like it is on the next season of American Idol. Remember, she was a singer first. [E! Online]
Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears, the opera? It’s not too good to be true. Timberbrit is a “tragic tale…Timberlake returns after a long absence to win back Spears’ love, but in the end she chooses the audience’s love above all else.” We almost cried just reading that.
Menswear-inspired looks on the red carpet are no new phenomenon, but Diane Kruger took the trend perhaps a little too literally at the Inglourious Basterds premiere in Melbourne. A bow tie and suspenders? We prefer a more subtle take on the borrowed-from-the-boys look, like the satin ensemble the actress wore back in December. Lake Bell managed to pull off tuxedo-chic in Rag & Bone at the Met gala in May. Do you think Kruger’s Chanel getup here has the same edgy effect?
