Diane Kruger has become the ‘official’ face for Chanel’s new skincare campaign launching later this year. But let’s face it Diane has been the unofficial face of the Chanel brand for many, many years.
She met Karl Lagerfeld back when she was 16, and counts him as a very close friend “he’s like a godfather to me”. She’s been spotted countless times in hot off the runway Chanel couture, has probably the biggest collection of Chanel handbags and no doubt catsits for Choupette.
Diane’s first Chanel campaign was back in 1996 for their Allure fragrance and then again in 2007 for a bag campaign. She was most recently the face of Calvin Klein’s Beauty perfume.
You’d also think that been besties with Kaiser Karl would hold some gravitas towards getting her a US or UK Vogue cover. She’s been recently promoting her latest movie The Host, and I got my hopes up for a Vogue cover. But her March Glamour UK front cover was beautiful enough for me.
