There was no other way to kick off the 2011 Venice Film Festival than with a breath-taking red carpet appearance from Diane Kruger. The stunning German actress stepped out for the première of The Ides of March in a gorgeous champagne Elie Saab gown. Diane sparkled in the embellished beaded bodice and sheer floaty skirt. I really love her relaxed gentle waves and fresh dewy make-up which tops off a beautifully feminine look for the 35-year-old. I can't wait to see what other red carpet stunners the festival will produce!
