I'm extremely excited for this year's festival and the red carpet glamour that will come with it. I've noticed that Diane Kruger's custom Giambattista Valli Haute Couture look has caused a bit of online buzz. I tend to be biased towards her and love almost everything she wears, but what do you think? She's a member of the jury this year, which means we can expect to see lots of her appearances during the festival!
