Fashion maven Diane Kruger stunned on the turquoise carpet for "The Host" premiere in Hollywood on Tuesday night.

The German actress wore a black dress with sheer side panels that revealed quite a bit of skin. She paired the look with gladiator-like Jimmy Choo shoes.

Kruger recently told Modern Luxury Manhattan magazine that she gave up her dreams of being a ballerina to be a model.  She went to Paris at 15 and three years later was "discovered" by Karl Lagerfield.

"Before then I had never been called pretty," Kruger explained. We're certain she's called "beautiful" now more than ever.

The supernatural film "The Host" hits theaters on March 23. Check our more photos of Kruger at the premiere...
