Diane Kruger: My brows make me stand out

German star Diane Kruger has shared her love for Karl Lagerfeld and how much she enjoys talking about cats with him.

The 39-year-old star began her career in the fashion industry as a model but moved into performing in the early 2000s, landing her first big role as Helen in 2004 movie Troy. One thing that has remained constant over the years is her striking appearance, which she works hard to maintain.

“I was always surrounded by great make-up artists when I was modelling and learned a lot from them,” she told The Violet Files. “I try not to overdo it and let the dress do all the talking.

“I’m really not into contouring and heavy foundation, but I have a pretty thick brow naturally and find that it gives me a lot of character.”

One other thing which has stayed with her from her modelling days is her friendship with designer Karl Lagerfeld. The iconic fashion star helms his own label along with brands Fendi and Chanel. Their bond has only strengthened with time, with Diane admiring his artistic outlook.

“I met Karl when I was 16 and, as you can imagine, I was very intimidated, but he was just very kind, encouraging and funny,” she smiled. “Since I’ve become an actress, we’re collaborating more and we’re neighbours in Paris. His studio is literally next door and I drop by when he’s working all night.”

Along with his oversized collars and dark shades, Karl is also synonymous with his cat Choupette. The famous feline has become a celebrity in her own right since Karl debuted her, with an Instagram page and photoshoots to her name. For Diane, this is just another reason why she loves the designer.

“It’s always nice to talk to another cat lady,” she giggled. “Karl politely tells me (my cat) Hobbes is cute, even though he’s probably appalled at how tubby he is.”
