Honestly? It’s all about the eagle cape.
Diane Kruger is the latest star for My Theresa’s “Women” series photographed by Jason Kim and styled by Tabitha Simmons in Valentino Pre-Fall 2014.
Because that? Is FABULOUS. She’s always in her best element when you give her something a little weird to wear.
Meanwhile, she has many things to say about her personal style – and make no mistake, it is personal, according to her:
“I know it’s crazy to think it would be unusual for someone to dress themselves. But, so often in Hollywood, women have stylists and they all look the same. I did that too when I first started out. But then I’d see pictures and didn’t recognise myself. As my confidence grew as an actor and as a woman I started picking my own clothes. I don’t want to look like everybody else.”
“If you’re only going to know one person in fashion, you want to know Karl Lagerfeld. He has such a unique personality: very curious, very smart and hysterically funny. I just love him.”
“I think most women dress for other women. It’s easy to please a man, the shorter the skirt and the sexier the dress, they will most likely approve of your outfit. I don’t think guys really get high fashion. In the end, I try to dress for my audience. On a daily basis, I dress for myself, on a date I dress for him and on the red carpet, it’s me.”
Okay, yes. You’re picking out your own clothes and you dress for you. Wonderful. Except you and Karl freaking Lagerfeld are besties, which tends to give one a huge leg up on one’s style choices, no?
Aw, we’re cranky. She looks good here, even if nothing lives up to the eagle cape.
And we might as well finish this off by being total bitches: we don’t a hundred percent buy that she never uses a stylist. We can believe she uses one infrequently, but we doubt she’s given free range to wear whatever she wants when she’s poledancing across the world for some movie.
