She’s loved the world over for easy chic outfits and an unbeatable fashion sense, so it comes as no surprise actress Diane Kruger feels right at home on the cover of a fashion glossy big shot, and her latest starring role? Glamour magazine’s March issue.

Photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth in New York City, the effortlessy cool Diane models a stunning Chanel jacket, Daryl K T-shirt, J Brand shorts and Chanel Fine Jewellery necklace on the cover – and the inside shoot proves just as sartorially pleasing with an Isabel Marant sweater, Band of Outsiders shirt, Giambattista Valli skirt, H.Stern cuff, Walter Teiger shoes, a Stella McCartney blazer, Viktor & Rolf bra top, Theyskens’ Theory pants, Chanel Fine Jewellery earrings and necklace and Christian Louboutin shoes to lust after.

But aside from modelling a designer wardrobe to die for, Diane also talks candidly to US Glamour about all things fashion, and reveals that clothes, for her, are more than just cover ups…

“I truly, genuinely like clothes,” she says. “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.”

Her failsafe? “A well-cut dress. It’s all about the cut. I love three-quarter sleeves,” says Diane. “I definitely like it classic; less is more. The thing I despise most is vulgarity, and there’s a lot of that here [in L.A.].”

But that’s not to say she doesn’t know how to spend.

“The biggest fashion purchase I ever made I thought about for six years. I’m not kidding,” she says. “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.”

We’re not surprised. Catch the full interview in US Glamour magazine when it hits news stands on February 8th.
