Diane Kruger Takes Best Actress at Cannes in a Winning Dress

Many won big at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival’s closing ceremony, but few did with as much grace as Diane Kruger. Today, the German star took home the Best Actress prize for her part in Fatih Akin’s In the Fade, a politically charged thriller that charts the aftermath of a hate crime in Berlin. Taking to the stage in a custom creation by Jonathan Simkhai, Kruger celebrated her achievement in style. With its off the shoulder design and puffed sleeves, the gown felt romantic, but its jet black color and minimal detailing kept it a polished choice for the award winner.

Kruger has always owned one of Hollywood’s most eclectic wardrobes. A former model, she’s served as the face of Chanel, collaborated with Jason Wu on his forthcoming Grey Jason Wu collection, and remained a front row fixture at Paris Fashion Week. Her choice to wear a rising talent like Simkhai for her big Cannes moment speaks to her willingness to go for the unexpected, setting the stage for a wealth of fresh fashion to come as she promotes her film overseas.
