Model-turned-actress Diane Kruger stunned on the red carpet when she arrived for the premiere of “The Bridge” in West Hollywood, Calif. Her designer of choice? Athens-born Mary Katrantzou.
The blonde beauty, who stars in the FX drama and is also recognizable from her roles in “Troy” (where she portrayed Helen), “Inglourious Basterds” and “National Treasure,” wore a short statement dress from Katrantzou’s fall 2014 collection. The bright badge-style mini caught the eye of numerous fashion blogs and magazines, saying the actress looked “amazing” and “mesmerizing” in the designer’s dress.

Katrantzou, 31, has been dressing many celebrities since launching her first prêt-à-porter collection in 2009, including Beyonce, Rihanna, Kerri Washington and Keira Knightley. One of her stylish designs was also worn by the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Born in Athens to an interior designer mother and a father who worked in textile design, Katrantzou moved to America to study architecture and then transferred to Central Saint Martins in London, England to complete her degree in textile design. She went on to receive a Masters degree in fashion before becoming a go-to designer for celebrities. Katrantzou currently lives and works in London.
