Jeans scene

DianeKruger-jeansNew jeans trend this season: patchwork! It’s cool and fun and you can make it as wild or sophisticated as you want. Credits go to Celine, as she already put it on the runway for fall 2011.

This combo from Diane Kruger is a true hit, combining two trends of the season: patterned pants and patchwork shirt.

And the trend continues for next season. London fashion preview for fall and winter 2013/14 showed a lot of patchwork and paneled fabrics on sweater jumpers, wide-leg trousers, gartered sweatpants, dresses and coverall long skirts.

Here is a selection for your spring/summer wardrobe:


Woman of Style Diane Kruger

Diane looks always very graceful, but for her job as member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival, she picked an amazing red carpet wardrobe.

Diane was born and raised in Germany. As a student she went abroad to improve her language skills. In London, she successfully auditioned for the Royal Ballet School, but had to end that career prematurely because of injuries. She then went to Paris to start her modeling career. It was there that she started acting and married French actor Guillaume Canet in 2001. After 5 years they split and she got together with current boyfriend Joshua Jackson. She lives partially in Vancouver and Paris.

We best know Diane from her modeling and as spokesperson for brands such as Calvin Klein and L’Oréal. But also her acting in Troy, Unknown and Inglorious Bastards didn’t go unnoticed. Check out her interview for The New York Times Style Magazine during which she explains how she got the role in the Tarantino movie.  

As a fashion icon, Diane can always be found on the best dressed list for her red carpet looks. Off the red carpet, she likes to give her looks always an original twist. What I like about her, is that whatever she wears, she always looks very elegant and graceful.
