Style crush of the moment - Diane Kruger
I must say that this style crush is taking a little big longer than just a quick moment. Mostly because it didn’t just happen suddenly one day, it grew on me for few years now. I first recognized Diane Kruger when she played in The Wicker Park in 2004. I thought that this girl has might be next “it” girl. It took her few years and some great roles (and outfits) to get there but she made it and now she’s got into the “ivy league” of the best actors and best dressed list.
Diane is an ex – model, with a great taste in fashion. After finishing her ballet career due to an injury, she’s decided to focus on being a model. When she was 16 years old, she was a finalist for Elite Model Look and has started to work in Germany and in France. After few years in modeling Diane felt like she wanted to so something more. And that’s when she’s started to think about acting. In 2001 she got married with a French actor and director Guillaume Canet. Even though they got divorced in 2006, they’ve managed to stay friends and even act opposite each other in a French movie Joyeux Noël. Same year the German actress met an American actor Joshua Jackson, with whom she’s been ever since. Diane and Josh are one of the Hollywood’s most beautiful and fashionable couples.
In December of last year, she announced the nominations of the 67th Golden Globe Awards and also was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild for Best Supporting Actress and Outstanding Performance by a Cast of a Motion Picture for her role in “Inglourious Basterds”. Thanks to Quentin Tarantino and his “Basterds”, Kruger was doing a lot of promotion for the movie, which helped us to observe all the fabulous looks, she’s created for herself.
In 2010 during a German film festival Berlinale Diane Kruger has won a Goldene Kamera for the best international actress.
Diane is in my opinion one of the most talented actress today. I admire her acting as much as I do her clothes. She had so many great fashion moments in the recent years but this last Award Season has just proved that she is one of the best, like she was during the Oscars Ceremony 2010. With her new movie projects and brand ambassador job for Jaeger-LeCoultre and L'Oreal, Diane will for sure stay in the picture for a while.I’m definitely going to keep my eyes on her and cannot wait to see more from Ms. Kruger.
