      Cute enough, ‘spose.

    • Sobaika

      LOVE the fourth picture, the one with the kitty.

      • rococodada

        I felt the same way. I was “whatever’, “whatever’,”whatever”, “wha-KITTY! I love this spread!”

      • call_me_schmeg

        i think i read elsewhere that the kitty is actually HER kitty, which makes me love her even more. diane’s entourage is a cat. tlo would be proud.

          That explains why it isn’t a fancy Hollywood cat. I was all impressed that it was a standard domestic shorthair grey- with-white-feet type cat, instead of a fluffy Himalayan or Persian or something, and giving props to the shoot designer for going a different route. Instead, it’s Kitty Kruger! Sweet.

            That also explains why that cat looks comfortable with her and not like it’s going to tear her face off. Most cats don’t lie belly-up like that for just anyone!

        • rococodada

          I am becoming a fan of Miss Kruger.

      • l_c_ann

        And the kitty doesn’t drop white fur on a black dress?  Ah, photoshop, you do have a real world use.

        • http://twitter.com/ajhan Angie J. Han

          I was thinking the exact same thing! I can’t so much as look at my b&w kitty without getting white fur alllll over my dark clothes. Don’t know how he does it.

          • kimmeister

            Does he get black fur on your light clothes?

            • http://twitter.com/ajhan Angie J. Han

              Yes, but somehow it’s less noticeable. I don’t know why or how.

          • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan

            Yes my white puppy gets his evil fur on all my leggings!

      • Little_Olive

        Mmm… I wish I could say the same but no, the kitty does not save this from the contrived stiffness I perceive. If anything, it looks out of place.

        • http://twitter.com/omg_dora Dora K.

          My first thought was that a photographer who goes by “Autumn de Wilde” can’t be expected to produce uncontrived work.

          (But then I googled her and it appears to be her birth name :-) )

    • http://twitter.com/Bloodisea Barbora

      Adorbs. Love second and fourth one.

    • Hell Yes, I Would!


    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1529220025 Lauren Bradley

      Love love love. She looks so fresh!

    • http://www.facebook.com/henry.maler Henry Maler

      Adorable! Love that floral dress she’s wearing on the cover/last picture.

      • Lily-Rygh

         Couldn’t agree more — I’m coveting that thing, hardcore.

    • charlotte

      Diane Draper? She looks great in these pics, especially in the one with the cat.
      I suppose Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t approve of being called someone’s “bestie” though.

      • Meg0GayGuys6

        I thought the same thing, regarding the Karl comment. I’m sure that’s what he loves seeing attached to his name, “bestie”.

    • Introspective

      its cute in a stepford kind of way. 

    • decormaven

      I might need pointy pumps, but I don’t need them in that color! She’s great, but the photo styling is uninspired. These look almost like catalog shots, except for the one with the kitty, which is adorbs.

    • zenobar

      Third pic – what a horrid, horrid insult to suits everywhere.  Also, pantsuits.  Also snap-front housecoats of the mid- to late 1960s.

    • Tatiana Luján

      her beauty is timeless and very well displayed in theese pictures.

    • alyce1213

      She is fabulous and lovely, but the clothing is abysmal, especially the white suit.

    • http://twitter.com/DarrenNesbitt Darren Nesbitt

      I like that she looks very non-photo-shopped in the Kitty picture. Her waist looks very realistic and natural. 

    • barbarienne

      She looks great in the pic with the cat–she really does “elegant” so well. The rest are fresh and pretty and not particularly wow-some. She’s hampered by some less-than-awesome posing and clothes. Keep showing your face, honey, because that’s worth a million bucks.

      The photoshopping in #2, where they’ve starkly outlined one side of her head while leaving the “artful” wind-torn wisps on the other side is killing me.

      And in the last photo, what is supposed to be happening there? Is she in a high wind, with her limbs being blown backward? “Thank god my right foot is nailed to the ground or I would be blown away!”

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/BJTY6KY7LOR7MDOD6QCZUC3VVI Donna Tabor

        She’s really working the Grace Kelly vibe in that second-last photo.

    • Carla_Charlton

      She is so much better than these.

    • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

      I want the kitty.  And that red dress.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

        Me too!

    • MsOlympia

      Diane looks cute too.

    • MilaXX

      The kitty looks like my dearly departed Aloysious.

      • Sara LaBatt


    • http://kingderella.tumblr.com/ kingderella

      the cats like “huh? what are you looking at? i dont see it, just looks like an empty corner to me.”

    • Indigo54

      That white suit is…is…a tragedy!  The rest is decent. 

    • MaryanneGirl

      I think she looks chic! Her face is perfect for this spread. I think she looks perfectly fabulous!

    • julnyes

      I like the photo with the cat. It has a modern Hitchcock blonde vibe to it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=603005248 Jeff Warhurst


    • f_yeah_marie

      Love her.  I wonder if this is the same magazine where she said in the interview that Joshua Jackson forbids her from watching Dawson’s Creek.

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      She’s going to be such a good villain in that Stephenie Meyer movie I’m not going to admit to seeing.

    • Kristy Evans

      I don’t understand why there is a fan? Blowing her hair all over, that is. Why would you perfectly style her hair just to blow it around? Poor editorial choice. The clothes are nice, though.

    • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

      I like pink, but the background on these is kind of making me queasy. Diane is fabulous, these clothes not so much. The white pants . The kitty is sweet though.

    • http://twitter.com/Nancer Nancer

      Boring. Even with the addition of the kitten. Beautiful woman, meh clothing, uninspired photography. Where is Korean Vogue when you need it?

      • Tom Shea

         I think it’s in Korea.

    • Monday1900

      Do want that cover dress!  That second picture is ravishing–she’s so beautiful.

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      Here for the kitty.

    • kimmeister

      The green dress is not flattering on her shoulders.  The white suit is not flattering on anybody’s anything.

    • peachy

      ew. what HAPPENED here? DK lose her mind? those clothes are hideous and make her look old and frumpy. the white skirt/black top/cat pic is the best of the bunch — but still icky. where’s her edge? her spark? her fashiony self? 

    • Imasewsure

      Don’t love the last shot but love all of the rest, particularly with the stark background… and the fluffball

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      Yes, I DO need pointy pumps.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1245406754 Tracey Magyar

      Clothers are super cute. But, I always have an issue with her hair. It is too fine and thin to wear that long. I know, I have the same hair and won’t let it grow past the bottom of my neck. She needs to cut it off!

    • Spicytomato1

      Love the last shot the most, so retro yet fresh. 

      She looks beautiful for the most part but her hair is really lackluster. I’d love to see her cut it all off into buzz/pixie a la Charlize.

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      She’s really working the Grace Kelly vibe on the cat picture.

    • margaret meyers

      The big high-waters look like they are giving her a SUPER wedgie.

    • JasmineAM

      She couldn’t get her roots done before this?

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I’m so glad to hear that I wasn’t the only one who went, “Dull… boring…. dull…. KITTY!!! Boring….”

    • SugarSnap108

      So that’s fashion in Canada ….

      The flowered dress is cute, but everything else, including the styling (bow headband?), is awful.

    • Susan Sontag

      That is the CORRECT color combo for a cat.  But… if it’s her cat that means she … schlepped it along to a photo shoot?  Who would do that to a cat?

    • libraangel

      The German ice has melted! cool but lovely

    • newtonGOTbeaned


    • Anniebet

      Nearly the perfect woman to be a prima fashionista, IMO. Only thing that holds her back from perfection is the forehead and thin hair. Yeah, the styling here is a bit underwhelming, but she’s just fine.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      She’s got a bow on her head. And she is not Hailee Steinfeld. NO. I don’t care that it’s a *Vuitton* headband; that’s a NO on a grown woman.

    • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

      The art director for that abysmal cover should be fired. Doubly so if it’s the same person who directed the photoshoot. What a waste of Diane Kruger (except for the cat photo which somehow turned out all right).

    • guest2visits

      There’s that dress again.  Not as cool or edgy as most of her photos seem to be; but soft and feminine and chic enough.
      She’s always beautiful but for some reason her face is really spectacular here.

    • prettybigkitty

      Kittten!!!  WIN!

    • quiltrx

      I like this a whole lot better than the (usually) weird, ugly shit she wears in public.

    • http://twitter.com/kendallbrunson SassyMcFrench

      These are classic Diana but they’re nothing really groundbreaking or special. She’s beautiful, the clothes are adorable and there’s a cat. Honestly, what could go wrong?

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Not the best pictures ever, are they?  But I salute the cat.  My cat salutes the cat owner taking a picture with the cat.  Though my little Halloween cat would not work with a white skirt.  (She begs to differ, as all looks are made better by black cat hair.)

    • ConnieBV

      You had me at kitty.

    • lrober03

      Her arms in the second picture???

      • libraangel

        Squeezing non-existent tooties together

    • kategs

      For such a stunning woman who can wear clothes like no other, this is completely bland.  Even the kitten can’t help!  Mehs all round.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Pretty. Nothing Earth-shattering, but pretty, nonetheless. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/NadiyaOsmani Pudgy Possum

      Man, she really reminds me of Grace Kelly here–that can’t be a bad thing!

    • ThaliaMenninger

      The kitty looks unhappy. I can’t get past it.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp


    • Susan Millar

      she look great with the cat, but as a shoot it is as stiff as a board.
