Diane Kruger

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

The Divine Carrie Bradshaw

Last night I re-watched the last two episodes of Sex and the City Season 6 (An American Girl In Paris (Part Une) and An American Girl In Paris (Part Deux)) and my love affair with Carrie Bradshaw’s impeccable style has been reignited with a sensational passion!

I have become utterly enchanted with her take on chic, whimsical Parisian dressing.

From classic black and white stripes (pictured above); to her breathtaking evening gown (pictured right); to that romantic polka dot red dress in which Carrie eats decedent desserts  – the fashion and styling is these two episodes alone is très magnifique!  

Love, Love, Love Carrie’s Parisian wardrobe and the alluring, intoxicating beauty of the ‘City Of Lights’…

Which fictional character is your most stylish? xx
