Diane Kruger In A Sheer Dress: Chic Or Shriek? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Ah, there's the Diane Kruger we know and love.

The German-born actress attended the Sidaction Gala Dinner in Paris on Thursday night, posing in an eye-catching dress made of icy blue tulle.

The cut, with conservative three-quarter sleeves and a high, rounded neckline, was plain enough; the lining beneath her floor-length skirt, however, stopped at the top of the thigh, leaving her legs exposed beneath the completely sheer skirt.

The look was bold, inviting of critique... in other words, a classic Kruger look. The "Inglorious Basterds" actress is a darling of the fashion set and a frequent front row denizen precisely because she will wear the high-fashion looks (tiered Chanel at the 2010 Oscars, fuchsia Christian Lacroix at the 2010 Golden Globes) that others wouldn't dare.

Lately, at the couture shows in Paris, Diane has opted for simple dresses, black and white in safe cuts. So we're thrilled to see her back in fashion that gets us talking.

So let's talk: what do you think about Kruger's sheer-bottomed dress?
