This Week's Best Dress Is Just. So. Pretty.

There are weeks where we are totally surprised by your choice for Best Dressed Star. Maybe the dress was a little out there, or perhaps there’s someone else who was just so good that we can’t believe they didn’t win. This is not one of those weeks.

RELATED: See the other stars in this week’s Top 10 Best Dressed!

Diane Kruger absolutely deserved her runaway “Best Dressed” victory in this exquisite Valentino Couture gown, worn to the designer’s Venice ball. Her blush pink, embroidered and beaded dress had shades of Grace Kelly (as does the willowly blonde herself!).

But true to fashionista form, Kruger updated the classic look with loose locks and a fuchsia clutch — and took full advantage of its sheer pockets — to make the elegant work of art look as easy to wear as a pair of jeans.

So tell us: Do you think Kruger deserved this week’s top spot? If not, are you nuts? We mean, if not, who did?

I love the dress so chic in pink

whatever I say is gold on

I’d prefer it in cream but that’s. just. me.

She DOES NOT look like Grace Kelly! She’s pretty and everything but not in a grace Kelly kind of level!
Ps: I do love the dress though

Funny story about Grace Kelly. Judy Garland was once asked if she thought Kelly was a nymphomaniac. Garland replied, “Maybe if they slowed her down.”

Denise on

This dress is gorgeous! I love most things Diane wears, but this might be her best yet!

The dress is beautiful, but I think she would have looked elegant with her hair up.

Grace Kelly? Be serious…who the heck is this person anyway? Because she’s blonde and tall you put her on the same level as Grace Kelly, shame on you who write these articles…

MAR on

It’s very pretty I like it would I wear it? Probably yes?

Sunny on

That dress is delicious! Now I just need somewhere to wear it … oh, and I need the dress, too. ;-)

Love the dress wonder what it would look like in black or a sky blue or an electric blue with a black or tan backround but i do love it in pink

Sarah on

Gaudy and trying too hard.

Grace de Monaco on

Ha! Please. She doesn’t have half the style or beauty of Grace Kelly!

Pat on

Well-deserved best dressed! Gorgeous dress and looks amazing on Diane.

Emry on

love the color, not the style.

Abby on

I love this dress. Everything about it is spot on. But my favorite part? It’s modest!

WoW on

I don’t find the dress all that pretty, but what is really baffling to me is how she was chosen best dressed? When you click the link to “See the other stars in this week’s Top 10 Best Dressed!” she is not even on the list, so how does she win?!?!

Love the colour and basic idea behind the dress but the current style of it is just a wee bit “Little house on the prairie” for me. It would have looked more elegant and I think more fashionable had it been more form fitting and with a deep v- neck and sleeveless arms- and no pockets- Fuschia clitch is right on the money however. I think Ms. Kruger is very pretty but looks slightly unfinished – I often see her looking as though she needs to brush her hair. The hair being down is fine but some loose curls/waves a side part and pinned up on the sides would have been more polished imo
