Diane Kruger to the Met Opera’s Opening Night – September 2013
The Inglorious Bastards star is another close friend and supporter of Gurung. Kruger attended the Metropolitan Opera Season Opener in 2013 alongside the designer, wearing his ultra-luxe double-face satin, Resort 2014 dress. The gown featured a contrast bodice with a straight neckline, a banded waist, and a full skirt with on-seam side pockets. The red-white-and-black dress with a longer-in-the-back hem is playful yet dressy enough for a black tie affair.
