Earlier in the week Diane Kruger attended the Jaeger-LeCoultre Place Vendome store opening in Paris. As the face of the Swiss luxury brand, the 36-year-old actress was on hand to bring a dash of Hollywood Glamour to the event. Diane wore a gorgeous navy blue Jason Wu lace jumpsuit and accessorised her look with a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch, a ’40s-pin-up hairstyle and red lipstick. Très chic!
Usually I admire jumpsuits from afar (Stella McCartney is my jumpsuit icon, FYI) but avoid giving them a go, as 1) I have very short legs and 2) they’re highly impractical if you need to pee! However, seeing how chic Diane looked in her Jason Wu number has encouraged me to get over my jumpsuit fear and invest in the look ahead of party season. The trick – it appears – is to avoid anything that suggests a ’70s disco and instead stick to tailored silhouettes in dark, block colours. Here are five of my favourite A/W options:
1. MICHAEL Michael Kors jersey jumpsuit, £170 or $140 USA // 2. Boy. by Band of Outsiders satin trim jumpsuit, £490 // 3. Warehouse backless jumpsuit, £80 or $142 USA // 4. Elizabeth and James ivory and black jumpsuit, £355 or $495 USA // 5. Stella McCartney tuxedo jumpsuit, £2,095 or $3,595 USA
The Stella McCartney tuxedo jumpsuit is the stuff of dreams (It’s very Gwyneth), but if you’re working with a lower budget then Warehouse have a fab option for under £100, and I’m also loving the mannish Elizabeth and James design. Pair them all with a splash of red lipstick and minimal accessories…
Do you like Diane Kruger’s Jason Wu look? Are you a fan of jumpsuits? Which design is your favourite?
