Diane Kruger Exudes Old-Hollywood Glamour

Evoking timeless elegance; Kruger’s classic style is perfectly refined – from exquisite red carpet beauty to weekend chic.

Sighting Karl Lagerfeld as a ‘stepfather’ figure – Diane Kruger is the epitome of chic. The German born beauty has previously modelled as the face of Chanel; been a global spokesmodel for L’Oréal; and appeared across countless best dressed lists.

While she does have a soft spot for Chanel couture; Kruger isn’t afraid to take risks on the red carpet. Whether embracing a vibrant colour or choosing classic black and white, Kruger’s beauty radiates from within. Often acting as her own stylist, hair and make-up artist for red carpet events, Kruger is fluent in the language of effortless style.

“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.” – Diane Kruger

Emma Watson’s People Tree Final Collaboration

Emma Watson has launched her third and final People Tree collection. The collection includes sweet dresses in gingham, florals and polka-dots; playsuits; harem pants; and more. Of the design process and experience, Watson said:

“The design process continued with me trying on each and every piece to get the fits just as I wanted them and then I visited Bangladesh to see the clothing actually being made and meet the people making it. It was an incredible and life-changing experience – I really wish everyone had the chance to see the difference Fair Trade makes with their own eyes.”
