Bordeaux is the must have color of the season. It is sultry and seductive, while still maintaining its mysterious sophistication. Some designers even call it this season’s black. And that’s because, just like black, you can wear it all day and all night. For instance: a bordeaux suede skirt is a chic and trendy piece for a day at the office- just change the blouse into a glittery turtleneck for a nighttime look and off you go – Studio 54 is waiting for you!
It’s no wonder the tone is all over the runway. From Gucci to Rebecca Minkoff, the fashion world has found a new darling and so has Diane Kruger. She stunned in an elegant deep burgundy velvet dress at Venice Film Festival this past fall. The piece was a wonderful homage to the 1950s Hollywood stars and made Kruger look like one of them herself. Restrained on first sight, it emphasized her womanly curves well and made her THE eye-catcher of the evening. As the saying says: Less is sometimes more.
Surprising many, the actress proved that Bordeaux should not be kept from people with a fair complexion. On the contrary: resembling a baroque painting, she proved how beautiful the game with dark and light can be.
To enhance the understated beauty of this outfit Diane paired her dress with subtle golden heels – adding elegance and a touch of sophistication. When creating your bordeaux look at home you can channel her class by pairing your outfit with a cognac pump to make the wine red really stand out. But like we have said, it is an easy color to play around with, so have fun and look for a shoe that suits you and your own unique style, maybe even try some sparkles!
