Now this is a perk of being Diane KrugerChanel customized a couture look just for her! The actress wore a dress from the label’s fall 2011 couture collection to the Chanel and Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner in Hollywood last weekend, a look that had been significantly updated from its debut on the Paris runway. “They took off the sleeves that it was shown with and they made it strapless,” Kruger told of the alterations, courtesy of Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. For an extra touch of luxury, the label sewed thee 18-karat white gold and diamond star-shaped earrings from its fine jewelry collection to the top of the dress. As for how Kruger got such a great insider bonus? “This was just a dinner, so I would never ask them to make me a dress, but Karl is a good friend, so he’s made dresses just for me,” she said. How fabulously lucky.
