Diane Kruger kicked off the Berlin International Film Festival fun this morning at a photocall for her new movie Farewell, My Queen. She wore a 10 Crosby by Derek Lam look, which features a skirt worn over a dress. Her French-language picture, which is based on the story of Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution, comes from director Benoît Jacquot. Diane actually stars as Antoinette, opposite Léa Seydoux as her lady-in-waiting. The movie is one of eighteen in contention for the festival's top honor, the Golden Bear. Benoît recently spoke about casting Diane Kruger as Marie Antoinette. He said, "I wanted a foreigner and Diane happens to have similar roots to the queen; she is blond like her and about the same age . . . [Diane had a] desire for this role that was so passionate that she was irresistible to me."
