Style crush: Diane Kruger
The name Diane Kruger might not encourage an immediate stampede amongst the fashion hungry girls who look up to super cool celebs like Kate Moss or Alexa Chung, but for those in the know, Diane is the last word in glamour, sophistication, and style. The stunning German actress exudes effortlessness no matter what the occasion, and her impecable fashion sense knows no bounds - for me, Diane is the epitome of a fashion icon of whom I've come to expect the best.
In an interview with Glamour magazine, 36-year-old Diane explained that she only adheres to her personal style, and that for her, it's "all about the cut." She went on to say, "I truly, genuinely like clothes. Making them is an art form, and wearing them is a form of self-expression. I find it very emotional because I can remember moments in my life--my mood, how I felt--through these clothes." As a regular at star studded events such as The Oscars, Coachella, The Met Gala and Cannes, I can imagine Diane's clothes have got some pretty amazing stories and memories attached to them.
As well as being a former model, an under-rated actress, a close friend to Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld, and one half of the cutest and most sincere celebrity couples around, Diane is also one of the jurors at the 65th Cannes Film Festival this year. Serving alongside actor Ewan McGregor and designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, the Inglorious Basterds star is already wowing her fans and fashion critics with her outfit choices, and I can't wait to see more from her over the course of the festival. As someone who very rarely fails to deliver and who isn't afraid to take risks on the red carpet, I don't think I'll ever get tired of watching Diane. Whether she's sweeping the floor in a feathered purple Prada, dressing head to toe in her beloved Jason Wu, or turning heads in a mint coloured Giambattista Valli Couture gown, this fashionable woman is a game changer, and someone whom even the A-listers should pay attention to.
