Actress and style icon Diane Kruger graces the very unapologetically girlie cover of the latest issue of Canadian fashion magazine Flare (on newstands now!). On the cover the blonde haired beauty is styled in a red Bottega VenetaSpring 2013 dress (which was also worn by Rachel Weisz and Kerry Washington) with tri-colour Christian Louboutin pumps. I am excited to hear that the premiere of her latest flick ‘The Host’ is coming up on March 29th - not necessarily because I am gunning to see the film but rather because we will be treated to more of Diane’s signature red carpet style.
Oozing of retro charm, Diane gets in touch with her playful side in the studio images accompanying the editoral while donning looks from Bottega Veneta, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Rochas and of course, Chanel.
In the article Diane discusses her buddy Karl, her beau Joshua, her past and current roles and her love of Twilight.
On her friendship with designer Karl Lagerfeld:
“I’ve known him since I move to Pars when I was 16. He’s very kind and can be very funny and ironic and silly. In difficult moments in my life when I don’t really know who to talk to, I sort of drop by his studio and he knows me well enough to pick up on weird things. He really is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.”
On Joshua Jackson’s career input:
“Nobody knows me better than he does. He knows exactly when I’m faking it and when I’m being sincere.”
On fighting for her role in Inglourious Basterds:
“Every once in a while there comes a part where you feel like it was written for you. And it wasn’t. But I felt like I really cold bring something to it.”
On her character in The Host:
“She’s so complex. She has that Stepford Wife-y kind of niceness yet there is so much more underlying there: rage and anger.”
On being a fan of Twilight:
“I actually happen to be a big Twilight fan, which I’m not embarrassed to say. It sort of appeals to my inner teenage girl.”

After Karl Lagerfeld and Jean-Paul Gaultier, it is Marc Jacobs’ turn in designing three new collector bottles which is a tribute to the last three decades of fashion: the 80s and the free woman, the 90s’ glamor, and finally the 2000s and its sport-chic sensual trend.
We saw the ad campaigns for the New collaboration between Diet Coke and Marc Jacobs. Here is a closer look at the actual bottles and cans. If you’re in France, stop by Colette because they have first dibs on these bottles!
Phoebe Philo is the sartorial queen of structure and tailoring, and she stays in line with what she does best for Céline’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. The designs skew traditional and neutral, with a handful of different prints and patterns.
My take on the offerings? I think the fashion house is ushering in an entirely new idea for the season: pilgrim chic. It is virtually impossible not to think of the Mayflower riders with all the large buckles, long overcoats, and wide brim hats at play.
