There are days when looking at street style photos of Diane Kruger fully delights me, and others when they fill me with a scalding, uncontrollable envy. As one of the best dressed people on the planet, Kruger has a certain knack for turning any outfit into an ensemble—a talent that can’t be taught. I’ve tried, trust me.
But this morning when I stumbled upon this picture of Kruger and her tanned, scruffy man Joshua Jackson, I experienced neither glee nor jealousy. Instead, I fell somewhere in between, spending multiple minutes trying to debunk the mystery that is this sartorial sorcery.
Due to her frock’s gathered empire waist, you can tell this dress is surely meant for a more fanciful occasion than an easy stroll through her New York City neighborhood. But with the right pair of flat sandals and a teensy crossbody bag, this gown-like piece magically manages to work for a laid-back outing.
How, Kruger, how?! I literally beg of you: what’s your secret?!
