Here are some photos of Diane Kruger at the opening night of the Deauville Film Festival in Deauville, France. Deauville usually happens around the same time as Venice, but Deauville is a lot less “drama!!” Still, Diane managed to bring some major drama with this gown on opening night. This caped, sparkly gown is from Elie Saab’s Fall 2016 collection. While I always appreciate the high-fashion drama Diane brings to a red carpet, does anyone else side-eye the “heart” design of the gown? It seems too cutesy for Diane. For an earlier photocall, Diane wore a cute/interesting little black Victoria Beckham dress too (I’m including those photos at the end of the post).
Diane attended Deauville to promote her movie The Infiltrator, and she’s been giving interviews about the film for a few months. I just saw this piece she did with Yahoo Style, and I enjoyed it – you can read the piece here. She talks about the film, but the most interesting parts were about her red carpet habits, and her general style. She hates thrift stores! She does her own makeup for red carpets!
Her ‘90s style: “I love fashion. I think it’s a really fun way to be a woman. I like to change it up. I like to try different things. These days, I guess you could say I’m a kid of the ’90s. That’s when I was a teenager. I’m loving the whole slip dress-sneaker phase. I feel like that’s how I went to school forever. I am unafraid of whatever is coming next. I’m not scared by it. I like to have fun with it.”
She doesn’t have a stylist: “I still style myself. For the red carpet, I often borrow dresses from designers though because that’s easier in a way. You give it back and you don’t have to go shopping for it. To be truthful, in my daily life, I don’t really shop that much. I love online shopping. Every once in a while I’ll go to Barneys and just have an indulgence day. But I love the convenience of ordering from home, I have to say. I think people need stylists when they don’t have time or they don’t find it fun to do it themselves. At this point, I think if I had to do a big tour, I would use a stylist to pull clothes, but I just don’t think I need a stylist.”
Whether she ever shops at thrift stores: “No. I know that is going to disappoint people, but I cannot shop in thrift stores. I hate the smell of them, and I can’t ever get over it. I love used jeans, but they have to be in a regular store, or I order them online. I have ordered vintage jean jackets from online. But there is too much stuff in thrift stores. It takes me too long to go through stuff.”
Whether she does her own makeup: “It depends. For photo shoots, I always have a makeup person. But often for red carpets, I do it myself.
I’m surprised that she hates vintage shops. I used to love vintage/Salvation Army/thrift shops when I was a lot younger, although if I’m being honest, I haven’t shopped in a vintage or thrift store in many years. That’s not because I hate them, it’s because I too find online shopping super-convenient. What is this though? “I hate the smell of them, and I can’t ever get over it”? She doesn’t like that dusty, moth-ball smell, I guess? As for Diane not using a stylist… I believe it for Diane much more than I believe it for Blake Lively.
