Diane Kruger is Allure’s July Cover Girl

German born model turned actress Diane Kruger, is Allure magazine’s July cover girl! The 33 year old, who is featured inside the mag, shows off a tafetta gown by designer Jason Wu, while also providing readers with fashion and beauty tips. Extremely fashion conscious, Kruger has become a muse to designer Karl Lagerfeld, and claims that she loves to take fashion risks. “Two years ago I wore an haute couture gown to the Venice Film Festival, and it has a full on corset…the bodice didn’t have one of those openings at the bottom. I nearly fainted because it was so tight.”

Lagerfeld has nothing but great things to say about Kruger, telling the mag, “I met Diane on a shoot I was doing for Elle in the ’90s, with ten other girls. Diane was stunning, and the most interesting girl. The others I forgot instantly. One, she can make any clothing, no matter how wild, look right. That alchemy is very hard to explain. And two, she speaks perfect English, French, and German.

Aside from her latest cover story, Kruger is actually returning to Allure following her successful modeling career; she was “once the face of Giorgio Armani’s Acqua di Gio perfume.” In addition, Kruger is set to appear as the new face of Calvin Klein’s Beauty fragrance in October!
