TV is the new black. If you have any doubts about that, just think ‘Homeland’ ‘Modern Family‘, ‘Breaking Bad’ or more recently ‘Ray Donovan’, ‘The Bridge’ and all the dazzling teasers of this fall’s series.
The Bridge is the talk of the day. While we used to have an iconic TV series every two years or so (HBO used to be leading the iconic pack), nowadays an iconic series every month or so is to be expected. I have watched several episodes from The Bridge and still didn’t decide if this will be my next must watch show. Should it ever become so, Diane Kruger is to blame.
Her trendsetting value, her selfmade fashionista principles and style convictions made a Kruger believer out of me! The images below will only showcase a handful of instances from Diane Kruger’s on and off the spotlight’s magic eye, feel free to become a Krugliever yourself and scoop deeper!
Diane’s character in ‘The Bridge’, Sonya, is not so much about fashion and style but about perspective and approach. Her interpretation is convincing and natural, much in Kruger’s own frame. However, ‘knowing’ Diane from her paparazzi episodes or Red Carpet glitz and glam reports, it’s difficult to see her wearing all that shapeless, genderless wardrobe. Thus making ‘The Bridge’ a challenge a part for us, fashionistas.
Who would, looking at this flawless case of casual wear exemplified by Diane, dare take her as a gauche tomboy? The mariniere, casual jeans, And high heels perfect combo topped with that cherry red Plexiglas Chanel cross body bag is my idea of perfect outfit for a casual day and more (except that the minaudiere in question costs around $10,000).
Her late night drinking pal is none the other than Karl Lagerfeld, also her neighbor in Paris (which makes her $10k bag not so difficult to obtain. With a special neighbor discount, I imagine). Her boyfriend is Peter Bishop… ahem Joshua Jackson. She’s starring in movies and fashion ad campaigns/magazines pictorial with the same ease and appeal. A walk on the Red Carpet is just as natural as a walk on the grocery store’s alley, so what’s not to like about Diane Kruger? (would you watch a TV series just because Diane is in it?)
