Glamour is back – and with a vengeance.

She completed her elegant look with Chanel’s high jewellery collection – the Dazzling beryl and white diamond earrings in yellow gold paired with Chanel’s fine jewellery Lion Sculptural bracelet and ring in gold encrusted with diamonds and quartz.
Diane Kruger opted for understated elegance with some exquisite jewels. To offset her custom Armani Privé crystal-embellished gown, she selected pieces from Chaumet’s Les Ciels de Chaumet high jewellery collection, including the Nuages d’Or earrings and ring, and a Soleil Glorieux ring. The ultra-contemporary designs are in white and yellow gold, encrusted with yellow and white diamonds. Kruger attended the Tout S’est Bien Passe (Everything Went Fine) premiere at the festival.
