What is your first thought when it comes to velvet?

Honestly, the medieval period first comes to mind — you know, that period when everybody wore gowns every day in Europe and the punishment for most crimes involve cutting off the involved body part.

That and curtains — heavy curtains used in castles to draw out the light and the cold.

We don’t often see velvet gowns or drapes in the 21st century. That’s why we didn’t know what we felt about Diane Kruger’s Alberta Ferretti dress at first.

In a red carpet full of sheer, cutouts, and skin, Diane’s 3/4-sleeve deep plum gown definitely stood out. The Troy actress accessorized with H. Stern earrings and a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch.

She and long-time beau Joshua Jackson celebrated 180 years of Jaeger-LeCoultre (a Swiss watch company founded by Antoine LeCoultre in 1833) in an elegant gala night at the 2013 Venice Film Festival. The event was held at the Teatro La Fenice, an opera house in Venice, Italy.

Take a closer look at Joshua’s right foot. I’ve been wondering what kind of haute couture designer shoe that is when I realized that it’s custom made to accommodate his injured foot! It looks like a black pair of Chuck Taylors from afar.

Meanwhile, here are some of our favorite velvet evening wear. We didn’t know there were so many great choices when it comes to velvet gowns!
