From Runway to Real Life: Diane Kruger in Chanel, Brit Marling in Viktor & Rolf and More (Forum Buzz)

We obsessively pore over the collections from Fashion Weeks around the world. But what we really love? Seeing how celebrities, fashion editors, models, bloggers and the like take those looks off the runways and wear them in real life. How did they change up the styling (or not) and what kind of transformations did the pieces go through from when they first appeared on the catwalks? Also, did the wearer even make the right choice? These are the questions we’re looking to answer in this new series, so here are a few recent looks that went from the runway to so-called real life.

The ever-fashionable Diane Kruger (seen here with the equally adorable Joshua Jackson) stepped out in a look from Chanel’s most recent collection for Fall 2013. Paired with thigh high Christian Louboutin suede boots, Diane skipped the structured jacket from the runway look.

“I like the Chanel outfit, it's cute, but those boots are outrageous,” Hazel commented.

Olga Kurylenko has been busily promoting her new film, Oblivion, and she’s been hitting one sartorial home run after the other. One of her latest looks is this Elie Saab Haute Couture Spring 2013 number. Other than her simple nude pumps, Olga’s styling closely mimicked what was shown on the runway – and it totally worked for her.

“Ok, did she hire a stylist? She hasn't looked this good since she rocked that red Valentino gown to the Quantum of Solace premiere a few years back,” LolaSvelt noted.
