Is it a dress or is it a jumpsuit? We aren't quite sure... All we know is Diane Kruger pulls off this tricky look like a sartorial pro

Diane Kruger is one of our favourite style stars, and for good reason too. The 37-year-old actress is known for her offbeat stance on all things fashion, so it comes as no surprise that she's willing to give one of this season's trickiest trends a go... 

For a glamorous FOX TV event in LA, we spotted the Inglorious Bastards star looking seriously chic in a black ensemble. It was only when we looked closer that we realised there was more than meets the eye to her outfit. 

Diane opted for this stunning black get-up from Marios Schwab's Resort 2015 collection and, while the brand classifies the piece as a 'dress', we're not quite so sure. Made up of a sculpted top with a lace cut-out panel, the 'dress' then cascades into taper, cigarette trousers with additional fabric draped elegantly over them forming the illusion of a skirt. Whatever you want to call it, we're seriously digging her look. 

It might be offbeat, but it's not the first dress/trouser/jumpsuit hybrid we've seen this season...

At Couture Fashion Week in Paris, Jennifer Lopez wore a white Versace dress complete with one full trouser leg while, back in January, Emma Watson was first to put the trend in motion when she sported a Dior ensemble made up of a split-front red gown with black trousers peeking through from underneath. 

As the saying goes, three makes it a trend, and if it's good enough for these stylish ladies it's definitely good enough for us. We reckon dresses-over-trousers are about to become big news at InStyle HQ...
