Diane Kruger's White Dress Reminds Us Why Fashion People Love Her (PHOTOS)

On this fine Wednesday morning, we would like to draw your attention to a rather stunning display of sartorial audacity.

Diane Kruger attended Tuesday night's GQ Men Of The Year event wearing a head-turning Cushnie et Ochs dress, a flimsy white creation with a mini cropped top and a thin strap that attached the skirt to her neck. It was a rather dangerous dress, the kind that could fly up or fall down or shift precariously at any moment. It's also a dress that could look, um, less than classy if styled incorrectly.

But Diane proved yet again why she is the darling of the fashion industry. The actress styled her risque dress smartly with a black Vanessa Bruno jacket, a playful Jason Wu clutch and classic black Jimmy Choo shoes. There was no spray tan, no overly coiffed hair, no glitzy jewelry and no vampy makeup (save for a basic red lip).

Everyone, this is why Diane Kruger is Karl Lagerfeld's best friend.
