Diane Kruger is so confident in her own style that she has no desire to follow the latest trends.
The actress has cemented herself as a major fashion icon in the celebrity world, garnering praise for her often bold but elegant evening looks. And according to Diane, the key to her great sense of style is keeping it personal.
“I don’t know if people necessarily ask me for advice, but what I’ve learned over the years is what works for me,” she explained in an interview with InStyle U.S. “I don’t feel the need to comply with trends. I like looking at the collections and trying new things, but I’m not going out of my way to try to be in style.”
The 42-year-old, who recently welcomed a baby girl with boyfriend Norman Reedus, pays close attention to her hair and make-up in order to update a look, and admitted that she has “an embarrassing amount of make-up” at home. Though she knows what she likes, Diane is always willing to look to other women in order to find ideas.
“I get inspired by other women, movies, magazines. And I’ve discovered a lot of great artists on Instagram, like Nina Park (who has worked with Zoe Kravitz),” the blonde beauty shared. “It’s fun to check out (a professional’s) page.”
The Inglourious Basterds star rates Pat McGrath Labs’ Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil and Tom Ford’s Traceless Foundation Stick, which is “nearly invisible, even in daylight”.
However, her biggest extravagance is an elliptical machine and a set of weights, which she bought in order to exercise at home.
“Working out is my time: It’s one hour when no one can reach me and I can gather my thoughts,” she smiled. “When I make a film, I often request to have that (the equipment) in whatever apartment they rent for me.”
