It is no secret that Diane Kruger is one of my all-time favorite actresses…not because of her acting (even though she is admittedly pretty good), but mainly because of her chic yet effortless-seeming style. This month, Diane is a cover girl for Glamour’s March 2011 issue, and below are some excerpts from her interview with the mag. Girl-crush warning in full effect!
Glamour: .(..) you are super sophisticated. Let’s talk about style and fashion. Today I have to say you…
Diane Kruger: I dressed down?
Glamour: Cardigan, button-down shirt, ballet flats.
Diane Kruger: What can I say? I don’t know about style. I know about my personal style.
Glamour:But you’ve had exposure to a certain level of design. It’s one thing to do a runway show. But Karl Lagerfeld and Francisco Costa are your friends.
Diane Kruger: 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.
Glamour: But it is fun to splurge sometimes.
Diane Kruger: I couldn’t agree more! The biggest fashion purchase I ever made I thought about for six years. I’m not kidding. All my life I wanted to own an Hermès Constance bag, and when I signed with Calvin Klein, I decided this was the time that I could afford it. I truly broke a sweat when I paid for it.
