Diane Kruger is one of the most exquisite ladies out there, and as such, she leads an exquisite life. Like dating Joshua Jackson (only he can pull off a denim suit and deep v-neck tee on the red carpet) and having Karl Lagerfeld as a neighbor. And in Paris, no less. But Kruger counts Lagerfeld as a neighbor, friend and mentor.
“One of the most cultured people I know is Karl Lagerfeld. I’ve known him since I was 16 years old and today he’s both a friend and a neighbor. He is obsessed with Versailles and Marie Antoinette. When I got the part of the queen, he was one of the first people I called and I walked over to his home and picked his brain for inspiration. My favorite fashion shows ever would have to be Chanel’s — for the fall 2011 couture show Karl created a replica of the entire Place Vendôme complete with statues and lamps in the middle.”
Kruger also adds this cute bit about her beau:
“I love men’s fashion, particularly Rag & Bone, which is one of my boyfriend’s favorite brands. He doesn’t like clothes that are too tailored or ‘fashiony'; sometimes I’ll pick up pieces for him, but he’s a big boy and can shop for himself.”
LOL we can’t even imagine how Kruger said, “He’s a big boy,” with a straight face.
